11/12/2021 from Huntington NY to St. Maarten on a Amel 53

OPO e-mail # 21-87 Boat owner and very experienced sailor OPOOPO is looking for one more crew for his annual passage south from NY to SXM. He has a very well equipped and maintained Amel 53 named Kimberlite that he has owned since new. He makes the passage back and forth each year and most of his crew are OPO member and repeat OPO crew. He runs a tight ship and the crew eat well. He is very safety conscious. I have known him for many years which is why I know the boat is in great shape. He likes to make the passage directly from Huntington to SXM and only stop in Bermuda if there is a good reason to stop. He would like all the crew aboard on November 12th and plans to depart on the Nov 13th or as soon as the weather window opens up. The passage is about 1600 miles and will take about 10 to 11 days, but allow time for a possible weather delay or stop in Bermuda. I should still be in SXM when you arrive. The passage is free with all onboard expenses included, but you need to get to and from the boat and have money for any meals and drinks ashore. If interested please e-mail him your sailing resume to XXXXX@XXXX
