Ind / Med / ARC / ARC+ / transAt (24k nm exp. USA citizen)

- 42yo USA citizen volunteer crew w/ clear passport.
- ~24,000nm sailing exp in last 5 years, mostly blue water passages.
- lots of references, most of whom I've sailed with multiple times.
- easygoing, can-do attitude. Cruiser, not a racer.
- sailing resume available upon request. Detailed OCL/FaC profiles as well.
- cost sharing for food and some operational expenses is fine.

Backpacking from Cape Town to Cairo, interested in helping folks do some sailing along the way if timing works out. Also interested in joining an E->W transatlantic passage in or around November.

Currently in East Africa, will be in Tanzania / Kenya / Ethiopia / Egypt / Lebanon over the next 4 months. Will head to Canaries in mid October to find a boat for the ARC/ARC+ or an independent doing a similar route, happy to commit to this earlier.

I like helping people move their boats from A to B.

Slight preference for cats on longer passages but monos are fine, too. Helping with deliveries is also fine and I'm quite good at both applying and removing all the painter's tape as well as not breaking anything or scratching the teak.

Enjoy fishing on passage and am not entirely horrible at it. Nothing like fresh mahi and/or tuna while on passage. Usually use fixed hand lines with mono leaders for simplicity but happy to use whatever gear you have.

Have done a fair amount of sailing with a fair amount of different people and know the drill pretty well. If the above sounds interesting, drop me a line and let's chat.
