3/13/2021 from Bermuda to San Juan PR on a J/160

OPO e-mail # 21-03 Delivery skipper OPOOPO is looking for 2 or 3 crew to sail a J/160 named “Danza” from Bermuda to San Juan PR. He is taking the boat to her new owner. OPOOPO plans to leave Bermuda on or about 13 Mar 2021. Plan for five days underway and two prep days, for some bureaucracy, a travel day, and some margin for delays (11 Mar as travel day). Departure may be delayed due to weather or to accommodate really good crew candidates. He adds: “The boat is a 2002 J/160. The boat was well maintained by the previous owner but spent over a year on the hard in Deltaville VA while for sale. OPOOPO was onboard during the survey. A copy of the listing is available. Satellite tracker on board so family and friends can follow our progress and limited email over HF/SSB/Pactor while at sea. Note that the boat does have an Espar diesel heater for chilly nights. The boat left Deltaville in January headed to Puerto Rico but diverted to Bermuda due to a parted shroud and a crew injury. The shroud has been repaired, the rig inspected, and a number of punch list items have been addressed in Bermuda. Skipper OPOOPO has been delivering boats for nearly twenty years. Crew interests underway including routing, piloting, navigation, communications, sail trim, provisioning and other logistics, and more can be addressed on board. OPOOPO ’s sailing resume is available at .” As usual the passage is free, but you need to get to and from the bat and have money for meals ashore. All costs on board are covered. OPOOPO explains his take on Covid testing about Puerto Rico on his web site at . Shore support is in place for filing travel authorization applications for entrance to PR. OPOOPO has sailed to PR and USVI previously during COVID. Interested crew should email OPOOPO at with a current sailing resume and availability. Telephone call interviews will be scheduled based on resumes.
