USCG Female Captain Looking for Adventure

.....But not on the highway, rather the sea!

I am looking for a longtime crew postion on a large sailing vessel anywhere and anytime. Can pay my share Catamarans preferred but monohulls will work. I am retired, 58, with lots of blue water experience. I make my own lures, surf, dive. fish, explore, cook, photographer etc etc. I am in Norfolk.

Re: USCG Female Captain Looking for Adventure

While the jokers are making light of the obvious, welcome to the carnival, you will find a ride pretty quickly. Check out Caribbean cruise on a cat, might be a good fit.

Re: USCG Female Captain Looking for Adventure

Thanks for the welcome. I have been using this site since it was cruiser.co.za and have found many great crew on here. I hold no prejudice against people with no training hulls. Look forward to seeing you in the islands, I am RPhurst.

Three questions...
Are you available begin october ?
Are you male or female ? FEMALE (I assume)
How will you travel to Canada to join me?

My info...
50 ft ketch - aux diesel (Perkins) 4 GPS, radar, 2 depth sounders, 6 man Viking liferaft, all new rigging and ground tackle, teak/mahogany in and out, plenty ground tackle (300 ft 3/8in high tensile chain), fridge, shower, etc etc
This vessel has been in Labrador and Newfoundland, Great Lakes and all maritime provinces - sturdy and safe
Will be sailing from NB Canada to Abacos, Bahamas
Leaving end september
You can do part or all of the voyage (please specify)
