I am interested in your offer. I am looking for a crewing opportunity for any time in Feb/March of 2018. I do not have much sailing experience, but I have been around power boats most of my life, and this last year I had a week long beginners sailing course, and then sailed a Laser sailboat the rest of the summer. I will be taking some ASA courses this winter, and then looking to crew on some trips to gain more experience and miles. If you would like to discuss more details with me, I can PM you with my contact info.

Re: Windward Islands Caribbean December thru May

I am very interested in your offer of sailing in the Windward Islands.

My wife and I live in British Columbia and we would be available at the end of March and in early April of 2018.

I am familiar with the art of sailing, and have completed American Sailing Association courses to bareboat status.

We are presently retired. I was a teacher and my partner was a pediatric nurse.

Thank you for this opportunity, look forward to your reply,

Re: Windward Islands Caribbean December thru May

Hi,
I'm totally interested in the Windward trip. I went down in 2016 to sail for 6 weeks with a local school but had to return early to Portland Oregon. I keep our sailboat here so getting an early start would be incredible. I am retired and so is my wife who is a Pshycologist. She will be taking art classes so I will be available during this planned period.
I have my USC Masters License 50-ton as well as Open Water SCUBA certified. I have sailed the BVI's as well as an Atlantic crossing in 2000. I also took our boat to Cabo BC in 2014 and joined the Baja Ja Ja for the second part of the trip and sailed from Oregon to San Diego. My schedule is open from December to May and I would think 4-6 weeks would be a good target but could commit for more. I'm assuming that my contgact information is available to you if not then I can provide it. I speak Spanish though expect that is not that important until one gets further south in the Windwards. I am also a non-smoker.
Looking forward to the opportunity
James

Re: Windward Islands Caribbean December thru May

Hi. I am a 53 yr old guy with a lot of enthusiasm. I have sailed Indian ocean Caribbean and Mediterranean sea before as a helping hand on Deck. There is a possibility that I could break away from the rat race and be free. I would know by February. If any spot is still available I would like to join you guys.
I appreciate ur response.

Thanks...mo

Re: Windward Islands Caribbean December thru May

Ahoy Builder, I am very,very interested in your upcoming voyage! I am experienced [just sold my Islander 37 that I sailed the Great Lakes],and lived and breathed ocean when I lived in the Keys from 1973Ė81.Most my sailing then was on a 16Hobie or windsurfer,but I did make it out on a few larger sailboats,besides numerous dive/fishing boats. I can cook fairly well I am told,keep watch,somewhat mechanical,and very easy to get along withóno anger issues,used to be called Smiley! I would love to get back to sea,and know I would be a asset to your voyage.Best regards! Bruce
