Looking to sail and learn!

Hi there, I'm 28, a little experience with boating on lakes and around the coast of my home province. Looking to get out and do something different, try something new. The ocean is calling my name! I can drive pretty much anything and I'm handy with a wrench, plumbing, electrical, you name it.

Re: Looking to sail and learn!

Hi,

I have a 1971 Ericson 39 currently in Hancock Harbor marina in southern New Jersey. This fall, late October early November, I want to sail her down the eastern seaboard to Titusville Florida. My eventual destination is Luperon Bay in the Dominican Republic, but that will be another trip. I'm easy to get along with and my friend will likely join us as well. I've had this boat a year and my friend and I sailed her from Greenport New York to where she is now on Delaware Bay. I have a full time job and can only afford to take a week or 2 off at a time. We figure 8 days sail, non stop to florida. We have a small fridge and solar panel but the current alcohol stove doesn't work so we were using 2 butane stoves. I'm hoping to get the more labour intensive work done in the Dominican where labour rates are low. My skype is chuckeroo86 and my phone is 514-941-7269. I live in Montreal.

Sorry to butt in (I'd love to join but clueless about sailing), but is Luperon a good spot to liveaboard? I've been hearing bad stories about DR in general (poor sanitation/health etc). Thanks

Re: Looking to sail and learn!

Super Low Expenses!! Come sail with us! We are looking for people to help share with the expenses for a late model 40 - 45' catamaran off Kos, Greece the third week of October (just over a month away). Plane flights currently kind of low ($550 rt from Chicago to Athens). The week charter is already paid for, we just need help with start up charges and insurance/damage waiver charges. Write back or call (coded - Two 6 too, three 6 six, ate 6 ate eight) if you have a chance of taking advantage of this opportunity! Linda

I am heading down the east coast NY/NJ to the ICW (Del) in late October. I will head to Miami and then cross to the Bahamas. I am sailing a slow, uncomfortable, yet fit Cherubini 27. I can use another set of eyes for as long as you wish to stay. I will cover boat coasts you cover your costs.
