I need to gain experience of ocean crossing
because I own a Nordhavn 40 motor
yacht which I want to cruise
from UK to USA via Caribbean
in 2018 and the insurers need me to have ocean experience before they will let me skipper
on a transatlantic passage
. I am therefore looking for a position as volunteer crew on a motor
yacht for an ocean crossing
, Atlantic either direction or whatever else is available.
I am 65, healthy & fit, sane and sober. I hold a British passport with no undesirable country stamps & current
ESTA. I have no criminal record
in any country.
I have RYA Day Skipper
, basic maintenance
and fault-finding skills on diesel
engines and motor yacht equipment
, and good situation awareness and anticipation skills. I can prepare basic meals
but sadly I am not what you would call a good cook. I can provide good references
and will ask for them in return.
Contact me via PM on this site in the first instance please.
