I am transiting Reboot out of the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Coast. This leg will continue up the St. Lawrence River to the Canadian Maritime's. This is an opportunity for those who would like some very compressed sailing experience to get in several weeks of experience. I am willing to take on inexperienced crew. I have skippered Reboot in the Chicago - Mac and the Bayview Mac races and have also done long distance races in Lake Ontario. Reboot is equipped under the offshore racing rules for ocean racing (EPIRB, Life Raft, Jacklines, etc.) I will provide you with life jacket and harness. You will need to bring your own foul weather gear.
You will need the proper credentials to be in both the United States and Canada. My next destination is likely to be Boston, MA
I will expect you to provide references via email.
