Vancouver 27

PO Crew Request # 24-06 Boat ow...

3/27/2024 from Panama to Marquesas on a Vancouver 27

PO Crew Request # 24-06 Boat owner and skipper XXXXXX is looking for one crew to sail with him aboard his 1980 Vancouver 27 named XXXXXX. He sailed from the USA to Jamica with one OPO members and has a 2nd OPO member joining him for the leg from there to the San Blas Islands and then to Shelter Bay Marina on the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal. Crew would join him at the marina in late March and stay for the long from Panama to the Marquesas and longer if you wish. As we mentioned in our previous crew request for him, we know this is a smaller boat than most people want to sail aboard. But he reminds us in his e-mail: Originally designed for a couple to sail from Canada to Australia and back these boats have done several circumnavigations including a passage through and wintering in the Magellan Straits. This is my second British built Vancouver 27, between the two I’ve sailed over 12,000 miles in Ocean passages. Besides the 12,000 miles ocean sailing in my own boats I made a transatlantic crossing last year on a Clipper 60. He is looking for an experienced OPO crew who can stand a solo watch and enjoy the adventure. The passage is free with all onboard boat expenses and onboard food included, but you need to get to and from the boat and have money for shoreside meals and drinks. Plus you have to make sure you are all set visa-wise to arrive in the Marquesas. He will explain the process. If interested please send your sailing resume to him at XXXXX@XXXX
