I am transiting Reboot out of the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Coast. This leg is the "laid back" reward for getting to the East Coast cruising grounds. I expect to meander down the East Coast as the spirit moves me, spend a bit of time on shore in various places and ultimately end up in Boston.
I am willing to take on inexperienced crew. 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.
I will expect you to provide references via email.
