Message Board: Sailing Opportunities

Non-OPO members are welcome to view our message board. You will notice that we do not post contact information. If you think you are or would have been interested in sailing aboard one of the offshore passage opportunities than it is a good indication that you should join OPO. Once you become a member you do not need to come back to the message board as the opportunities will be e-mailed to you as they come up.

In seconds you can become an OPO member like so many other pleased captains and crew.

5/24/2022 from Grenada to Solomon's Island MD on a Hylas 49

OPO e-mail # 22-43 Pro skipper XXXXXX has a Hylas 49 in Grenada to bring to Solomon's Island MD, in the Chesapeake Bay. He regularly gets crew from OPO and is a good guy and an old friend of mine. The trip is about 1800 NM, with likely a brief stop in St. Thomas for food and fun and friends. The boat is recently sold, has surveyed well, been re-rigged and seems seaworthy, well equipped and comfortable. He e-mails this morning: “I seek two or three worthy sailors who are attentive, aware and able to stand night watch alone. You must be able to tie a bowline, be a team player and helpful with all chores. You are advised to be fully vaccinated and probably will still need a negative Covid test in hand to enter Grenada and have a passport valid for at least 6 months more. Interested individuals should send me a brief sailing resume showing your experience and stating how you anticipate being useful on this potentially excellent sea voyage. Fishing is easy from a Hylas. Typical of OPO, the crew must provide their own transport to and from the boat. I will pay all expenses on board, including Covid related costs. I have penciled in Tuesday, May 24, to fly to Grenada, hoping to depart soon thereafter.” The passage is free with all onboard expenses included, but you need to get to and from the boat. If interested please e-mail him at XXXXXX at XXXXX@XXXX
