I expect to be sailing from Texas
to the Chesapeake Bay
next year. The boat
is a 1990 38' Irwin Center Cockpit
, very comfortable and well equipped. I need crew for the part of the trip between New Orleans
and West Palm Beach (estimated to encompass the month of March 2011, and the part from Morehead City to the Chesapeake (estimated for around mid-April), for exploring the Chesapeake, and for the return from the Chesapeake to the Florida Gulf Coast
(June and July). The trip will be a mix of offshore
, depending on weather
and crew preference. The schedule is relaxed, allowing quite a lot of time for weather
delays and stopovers.
is a 70-year old lady with a lot of sailing in the resume, very safety-conscious. I'm familiar with most of the ports
and waterways involved, having sailed them with other people at various times. The only other permanent member
of the crew will be a chihuahua named Munchkin. I pay for everything except transportation and adult beverages. If you are interested, contact me: janetsnets at gmail dot com and I'll send you the proposed itinerary, my sailing resume, photos of the boat
, and anything else that would give you an idea whether you want to entrust me with your life.
