OPO Crew Request # 24-13 St. Maarten to Huntington NY - Boat owner and skippe...

5/22/2024 from St. Maarten to Huntington NY on a Amel 53

OPO Crew Request # 24-13 St. Maarten to Huntington NY - Boat owner and skipper XXXXXX is looking for crew to join him for his annual sail back from the Caribbean. He has made the passage many times on his very well equipped and maintained Amel 53 named XXXXXX that he has owned since new. The target date to depart is May 22nd, but he is flexible with the date. He plans to sail straight through SXM to Huntington but always leaves the option to stop in Bermuda so plan the extra time away if you stop. The passage takes about 9 or 10 day of sailing, but you need to add a few more days just stop in Bermuda just in case. He has gotten crew from us before. This is a very seaworthy and offshore built boat. He has been making the passage for as long as I have. He is looking for crew that are team players and willing to follow instructions and learn so previous offshore experience is nice, but not the most important criteria. (Although aversion to sea sickness or knowing how to take medication to prevent is key.) Crew will stand watches and help keep the boat safe and in good order. The passage is free with all onboard expenses included, but you need to get to and from the boat and have money for meals and drinks ashore. If interested please send your sailing resume and phone number to him at XXXXX@XXXX
