Subject: Looking for Crew- Long Island to the Canaries (July - December 2017) /Canaries to Long Island (January -May 2018)
This cruise I am trying to minimize the number of crew by encouraging a sign-up for several months. This will eliminate a tight schedule for meeting in different ports. The first half of the cruise will cover Long Island to Newfoundland, the Azores, Portugal and the Canaries. I am not sure at this stage just where I will leave the boat for the mid-cruise break- probably the Canaries. Time period will be early July to December. The second half will be the Canaries, Cape Verdes, the Caribbean, Bermuda and Long Island. I plant to be back by mid-May. I will return to the boat in January.
At the moment I have crew tentatively on board for the first half. However plans of potential crew sometimes change so I don't mind hearing from stand-bys. Anyone interested in the second half should contact me giving dates. I cover all on-board expenses, crew get themselves to and from the boat. I prefer non-smokers.
Crew would make their own way to and from the boat, all on-board expenses such as food, fuel, dockage, etc, are covered. No offshore experience is needed, but volunteers should have some sailing knowledge and not be prone to sea-sickness. Non-smokers preferred.
