3/1/2023 from Panama to Marquesas on a Leopard 45

OPO e-mail # 23-03 Boat owner, XXXXXX Goueff, has a well outfitted 2019 Leopard 45 named GLAM. As a result of their current crew cancelation, they are looking for two crew for this 3900 NM leg from Panama to the Marquesas (French Polynesia). There will be a total of 3 crew. He emphasizes “to us, most important is to have someone that will fit int the team, and at least one crew with significant sailing experience (> NM) (including on catamaran) and at least one Atlantic or Pacific crossing” He writes in his e-mails: Glam is well equipped for blue water sailing. Since we purchased her last year, we sailed from XXXXXX to Annapolis, back to XXXXXX and then to Grenada, via a number of Caribbean islands, where we left her for hurricane season. We are now in Columbia on our way to Panama where we plan to cross in early March to the Marquesas in XXXXXX As my own sailing skills are limited, we are looking for at least one crew with considerable sailing experience. The passage is free with all onboard expenses included. Plus, you need to have money for meals, drinks and entertainment ashore. Entry tax and administrative fees will be paid travel expenses within reason (economy). If interested please send your sailing resume to Stephan at XXXXX@XXXX NOTE: This is an update from a crew request we sent out last month. Stephan did have 2 OPO crew lined up, but both had to drop out. (They had good reasons so I am not contacting them to say “Bad on You”, as we hate when skippers cancel on OPO crew as much as the reverse with OPO members leaving a skipper or owner in a bind. But that means he now still has two openings for this nice warm passage. I just got off the phone with him. As you will read in the crew request he is asking for one crew with good offshore experience. Don’t let that keep your from contacting him if you are close in miles or experience.
