Crew Wanted - Los Angeles to Caribbean

I have just returned (January 3rd) from a 22 month, 15,000 nm cruise from Marina Del Rey (Los Angeles) to French Polynesia, then Hawaii, to Seattle and then back to Los Angeles. My boat is a 2017 Beneteau Oceanis 45, fully outfitted for water sailing">blue water sailing.

I am now preparing to leave Marina Del Rey about mid-February for the Caribbean. Much work to be done first: a) new bottom, b) new running rigging, c) all new standard sails, plus a new furling Gennaker, d) addition of Dometic air conditioning systems (3) and e) servicing every other system on the boat, including the water maker, engine, autopilot, and generator. When we depart the boat will be as ready as is possible for crossing oceans, even though I am planning a port-to-port, relaxing cruise to the Caribbean, which should take about four months.

I would like one crewperson to join me for the entire four-months, although I will have an occasional family member, friend or colleague join us for up to a week. I would prefer someone who likes/can cook. Sailing experience is helpful, but need not be extensive. Most of the sailing will be day sailing with an occasional night or two at sea for longer passages between islands

Please let me know if you are interested so that we can talk and then get together for lunch or dinner if you are close enough to come to Marina Del Rey. If you are a woman, I can supply personal references from friends and colleagues of my daughters who have worked with me for years. I am always smiling, happy and looking for the best (most of the time. smile

All cruise costs are covered. I would generally prefer to share food and drink costs. All other costs (except your airfares to Los Angeles and return(s) to your home.

If you would like a mellow, beautiful adventure, give me a call.

Richard

Re: Crew Wanted - Los Angeles to Caribbean

How long do you estimate this will take? I'm going to be spending Mar & Apr in Europe, hopefully sailing on the Med. After I come back, I could join you for part of the route in case you can't find someone who can join you for the entire trip.

It is possible to need someone from Costa Rica, through the Canal and then on to the Dutch Islands, ending in Curacao. I will leave it to you reach out to me at that time.

Re: Crew Wanted - Los Angeles to Caribbean

Good day Richard, I'm very interested in helping you sail anywhere you plan to, if you still require help. I have minimal sailing experience, but have been studying and learning as much as i can over the last few months. A little about me, i'm a 28 year old Canadian, recently coming off disability with a knee injury that has kept me isolated for the last 3 years. I've always had a passion for the ocean and want to sail the world. I'm a very hard worker, no stranger to long hours or bad weather, and take instruction very well/ always look for ways to improve myself. I also enjoy cooking and i'm always looking to expand my knowledge on how to prepare foods, it is part of the reason i want to travel around. If I sound like a possible candidate for your adventures, please reach out to me at bbourne12@live.ca. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you may have!

Re: Crew Wanted - Los Angeles to Caribbean

Hello Richard. My name is Silvio, 27 years old. I currently leave in LA but I'm taking some time off to learn how to sail and travel the world. I'm italian so you know cooking is not a problem. I'm an easy-going guy eager to learn about sailing life (I'm looking to buy a boat in the next 5 years or so). If you postponed the trip and are actively looking for that crew member, i'd love to join you in this adventure.

Silvio

Re: Crew Wanted - Los Angeles to Caribbean

Originally from Missouri, I have been in Orange County for several weeks hoping to find a blue water vessel in my price range to cut my teeth on solo. Although, I would like to gain more experience. So, if you are still looking let me know. I am flexible but ready.

Re: Crew Wanted - Los Angeles to Caribbean

I am available for the trip if you are still looking. I am a license captain with a sailing endorsement. I have several years sailing/living in the Carribean.
I can manage my own expenses.
