10/29/2019 from Georgetown Great Exuma, Bahamas to Fajardo, Puerto Rico on a Jenneau

OPO e-mail # 19-81 Boat owner and skipper OPOOPO is looking for two semi-experienced (some offshore experience preferred) crew to join himself and another friend on this 1000 mile passage. He has a 2002 Jenneau 52.2 named “Tropic Bird”. He sailed the boat from Bahamas last year from the Chesapeake, cruising with his wife, two young children sometimes his brother. I spoke with him today ad he sounds like a very nice guy. Canadian even. He knows this is an upwind passage and has done his homework about heading east first. That is why his wife and kids will fly in later. The one other crew member has OPOOPO delivering motor yachts but limited sailing experience. Tyler(Captain/Owner) has Ocean sailing experience along U OPOOPO Coast, Bahamas, and OPOOPO Tyler is heading back to the boat in early October. “Tropic Bird” did fine in her hurricane hole in the Bahamas. Tyler says you are welcome to come 2 to 4 days before the planned Nov 1st departure. You would fly into OPOOPO Airport (GGT) and plan to fly home from OPOOPO OPOOPO about Nov 16th. The passage is 1000 miles and will take up to 18 days building in some time for weather delays. The trip is free with all onboard expenses included, but you need to get to and from the boat ad pay for your own meals and drinks ashore. About the boat Tyler Adds: “The boat has a liferaft and Ebirb. She is prepared for Ocean passage. Solent rig (working jib and genoa on furlers). 150 gallon diesel. 200 gallon water. 15 gph water maker. Diesel generator. OPOOPO Radar. AIS. Hydraulic autopilot Predict wind offshore. Weather routing provided by OPOOPO All systems and mechanicals regularly used, inspected and maintained. She is very comfortable with a diesel generator, air conditioning, 15gph water maker, 150 gallon diesel tankage, refridgeration with separate freezer, 3 separate cabins, 2 heaads, etc Boat successfully cruised full time from October through May of last season which included offshore passage from OPOOPO to OPOOPO Cay with Numerous and regular passages throughout the OPOOPO Professional rig inspection and vessel survey completed within the past year.” If interested please e-mail Tyler with your sailing resume to XXXXX@XXXX • Note this new addition to our header to help you quickly qualify an opportunity based on how long it might take.
