7/15/2024 from Grenada to Curacao on a Beneteau 55

OPO Crew Request # 24-69 Boat owner XXXXXX is seeking an additional crew to support his family during this passage. He is offering to help with travel expenses in compensation for the right crew, but you can also offer to pay your own way if you think that will help you get aboard. This is a great opportunity to meet a boat owner and his family who is looking to make friends to join him for longer sails in the future. Here is his crew request in his own words. He e-mails: My family and I are looking for crew to support the delivery of our 2015 Beneteau 55 from Grenada to Curacao. I have 35 years' experience and 23 years of boat ownership from 42 to 55 feet in length. My wife has a good experience as first mate on the vessel, but we are looking for an additional crew to make this trip more relax for her and my 7-year-old daughter. My 15-year-old son will be a crew member and is experienced as well. He is well versed in the vessel and navigation as he is also becoming a pilot, with already 60+ hours of flight time. The boat crossed the Atlantic in the ARC in 2022, and made the voyage to the Northeast U.S. in 2023 and has all safety equipment required for safe and comfortable offshore sailing. All equipment serviced and many spare parts onboard. Owner will be onboard for the passage. The vessel has all the sailing gear it can have and comfort equipment. Owner would love to develop a relationship with a crew who may make further passages up within the Caribbeans and Latin America. USA or Canadian passport holders only. Previous offshore experience preferred. Needs to be able to stand a solo watch. All onboard expenses covered. Possibility to cover flight for the right crew. Planned departure is on July 15, weather depending. Distance approx. 400 NM or 3-5 days. Sail nonstop unless weather or equipment failure. Please contact him by email with your sailing resume to XXXXX@XXXX
