I have some excellent crew lined up but you know how that can change rapidly. I would still like to hear from those with interest and ability. Here is an update on my trip south aboard JAZ a Condor-40, headed to Brunswick GA. It is going to be a great adventure-- weather
permitting but that is always the case. I would appreciate any advise/suggestions for marinas/moorings along the way I might need to duck into. This forum is so informative from one sailor to another. Mahalo, CL
where as our news casters says daily, we have the best weather on the planet. I will bring some of it with me to insure we have a fantastic sail down the east coast
The itinerary has been set the best it can be considering that as prudent sailors, we know all good plans can be doused by some unfortunate weather. Lets pray for great weather on this one. I do have my crew set for the northern leg which is Fairhaven MA all the way to Barnegat Bay NJ. That portion is more or less a vacation
run to get my lovely wife aboard for an enjoyable week. You see she has not been all that enthusiastic that we have a boat 6000 miles from home. Gee, I wonder why?
Although we are now just over a month away, Its time to finalize my crew and you are an excellent choice considering what I know of you so far. I have several great candidates and I would be happy to have any one of them aboard. As we decide this week who can make it, here are some details to make sure you know the route
are ready willing and available. Take a look at the info outlined below and I would like to schedule a time to give you a phone
call to introduce ourselves this week to make the final pick.
