8/24/2022 from North Miami FL to Key West FL on a Hylas 49

OPO e-mail # 22-86 Boat owner and skipper XXXXXX has a 2008 Hylas 49 named It’s XXXXXX He is looking for one crew to join him for a two-week leisurely passage. Franks lives in the UK but keeps his boat in Florida. He plans to depart from his home base marina in FL, the XXXXXX Marina about 24th of August. He will have his 28-year-old granddaughter and female friend joining for the passage south to XXXXXX but they will only make the one-way passage down and not the return. Frank would like an experienced OPO member as crew to sail down as one of 4 crew and then back double handed. Note, this is not a forced march but a leisurely two-week cruise. He e-mails: XXXXXX Thank you for your prompt reply. Grand daughter and friend are 28-year-old female adults and we sailing from Aventura to XXXXXX Grand daughter and friend leaving there after a few days and then I just intend to sail back to Miami, leisurely day sails both ways. would like older male or female crew for the complete trip. At the moment I have not any crew for the trip back to Aventura from Key west. The boat is a hylas 49 built in 2008 and in good condition after a voyage from Grenada earlier this year. Frank has owned other large boats over the years and has 40,000 miles on this one. He is a very experienced owner and is looking for someone to enjoy this two-week passage and lend a set of experienced hands on this one. He will pay all onboard boat expenses and fuel and dockage etc., but you do need to get to and from the boat. Plus, he asks that you chip in for your share of onboard provisioning. He adds that they eat well and like to cook. Remember this is not a forced march with night watches so OPO policy does not make owners adopt OPO crew as children and grandchildren. So, it is very reasonable to chip in to eat well when sleeping in at night. If interested please e-mail Frank a copy of your sailing CV and interested in joining him at XXXXX@XXXX
