Dear Lexx

Please Read this letter carefully and attentively...

I have good experience sailing; I lived for 22 year in Miami Beach USA making Key Biscayne and the Atlantic Ocean my playground sailing on a Colgate 26, power boating, fishing and diving. I also participated in few regattas in Key Biscayne competing in a small 4-crew sailing boat wining one competition it was a stroke of luck :-)

I am well fit, well-mannered, extremely positive, easy going individual with a ken common sense; moreover I am a highly educated individual... I fluently speak write and read in Russian, Spanish, English and Portuguese with Basic in Italian and French; I have two degree and I am also a Pilot for single engine airplane, a NAUI Scuba Diver with Survival skills in the Forests, Deserts, Mountains and Waters.

I am very interested in buying a boat OR buying into a boat "partnership"... Therefore I NEED/DESIRE to be FULL time in a boat for the next year or two in order to acquire more experience necessary to become a true sailor and be able to sail the world... I am ready to do ALL tasks from the smallest to the biggest; any and ALL boat duties to quickly master all tasks needed for sailing.

I am very interested in sailing with you... Please let me know

Respectfully yours,

Karlos Falcon

Hi Lexx

I am looking to crew on a s/v that is going to the places you are going. I am not on a schedule. I am a retire teacher that has been crewing for a year I have done 3 passages: American Samoa to Tonga, Tonga to Fiji, Fiji to New Zealand. I just went to "sailing school " in Nelson and got a day coastal skipper certification. I need lots more time under sail. Currently located in New Zealand

Hi,

I swa your post. Are you still looking for crew? Where are you?

Just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I'm interested in joining your crew.

Heres some info about me.

I sailed Hobie Cats as a kid. Sailed whenever I could get on a boat, weekly club races on Long Island Sound and Puget Sound, crewed from Guatamala to Florida, bare-boat chartered in the Caribbean and Tahiti. Had my own boat, a Catalina 30, and "cruised" the San Juans and Gulf Islands five months each of the past few summers, single-handed and on the hook. Winters I was living on her at the marina.

Graduated from UCSB and then went traveling, chasing mountains around the world. Have spent about 15 years abroad, mainly in South Asia, Japan, New Zealand and Central America. Worked on and off for Stanford University during the 1980s. Have lived east coast, west coast and in between. Have done a lot of bicycle and motorcycle touring. Interested in nature, especially birdwatching, mushrooming, fishing/crabbing. Just sold my house, gonna miss my vegetable garden. I love reading.



My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

I've decided to get more seriously into boating. I bought my first boat a few years ago and the learning curve has been incredible. I knew wind and sails, sailing lingo and how to handle a boat, but now it's all about safety and systems and the responsibilities of a captain. Best way to learn is hands-on. But now Im boatless again and am looking for the opportunity to sail with others and learn more about boats. My dream is to sail to Alaska. And then who knows.

I sold my Catalina 30 not too long ago, but now looking to get back and more deeply into sailing. Very interested to learn more about all aspects of boating. Would appreciate the opportunity to help out on your boat, get more experience and knowledge, and have fun. Thanks.

And if you have the time, where in SE Asia are sailing hubs where one would have a good chance of finding crew positions. I figure to just go with my kitbag and prowl the marinas. Thanks.

Jack Whittemore


p.s. Im healthy, unencumbered and financially secure.

The yacht is a 42 foot cutter rigged sloop, (pics in the photo section here), and sleeps 5 in comfort but can sleep up to 9 people.

I plan to sail up the coast to the Torres Straights and then on to Darwin. Then on to explore the northern Kimberly Islands for a while before heading back to Darwin and provisioning for Indonesia, Malaysia and beyond. This is to be a trip of exploring new places and enjoying the journey, laid back with as little pressure as possible.

Me ... older guy with many years of coastal and ocean cruising behind me. I live on a small fixed income and love the adventure of places new to me. I live simply and don't have unrealistic expectations.

I am looking for two or 3 people, (male or female), to join me in this adventure ... I am not looking for someone who just wants to join a yacht for a few weeks as a way of getting from one place to the next, rather I am looking for someone who wants to enjoy an adventure of exploring much like me ... for 6 months at least and maybe much longer. This is an open-ended trip and yes you would be expected to contribute within reason but we can discuss that when the time comes.

I have one guy who will be joining me to assist with getting the yacht ready in Mid February. he will be staying with the yacht to the Kimberley Islands then departing to do his own thing. Ideally I would like to encourage 2 to 3 people to join me for this trip and would prefer a gender mix. Age and experience is open but some level of fitness would be nice.

Want to know more ??? message me and lets see where it goes.
