11/25/2019 from Camden Maine via Bermuda to Falmouth Harbour Antigua on a Oyster 53

OPO e-mail # 19-98 (exact dates are unsure...see *below) Pro skipper OPOOPO is looking for 2 QUALIFIED and OFFSHORE-EXPERIENCED crew member(s) to round out his offshore passage crew. MUST have offshore experience and MUST provide résumé or sailing log as well as references. Jim is a good skipper and has got crew from us numerous times before. Jim is delivering a fully-equipped Oyster 53 from OPOOPO to OPOOPO Antigua. This will be a passage that will take about 10-11 possible weather delay days. In addition, applicants should figure on a day or two prior to departure, for prep, as well as a half day for cleanup, upon arrival. * OPOOPO is on ANOTHER 10-day RI-to-Antigua delivery just prior to this, with, of course, an uncertain arrival date. A better idea of start date for THIS Camden-to-Antigua trip should be known around November 9 but a flexible crew needs to be in place at that point. Also, keep in mind that this trip’s finalized dates may mean you could(?) be away from home on Thanksgiving. With that uncertainty in mind, all crew would tentatively arrive in Camden on November 25(?), for departure a day or two later (weather permitting)...and must be available for 2 weeks or so (?), to allow for potential weather delays. This trip is unpaid (i.e., no per diem) but crew members will have all food expenses covered. Transportation costs to and from the boat will also be reimbursed, up to a maximum of $700. If interested, please e-mail Jim directly at XXXXX@XXXX (don't forget the "r" in the address). Attach your résumé or log of past offshore trips and include references. Jim adds: I am a 100-ton professional delivery captain with 43 years' experience and more than 116,000 offshore miles. I have done this and similar passages many times before. I am safety- and weather-conscious, and have a calm demeanor. I am will make the final crew selection by October 22...I may be offshore until then. and...THANK YOU FOR YOUR FLEXIBILTY ON THIS ONE!! ???? Cheers!
