Looking for additional crew to FL, October 2012

Postby DaysailorJ » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:00 am

I am looking for additional crew to help sail my Freedom 40 to Lantana, Florida from her summer mooring in New Bedford. The trip will be primarily down the coast, 5-30 miles offshore. We will head out in mid-October, and the trip lasts 15-20 days. It is possible to crew for only part of the trip, if your time is limited, as there are three legs involved. The first leg, New Bedford to Norfolk,VA via LI Sound and the East River, will take three days, sailing overnight with 3 or 4 hour watches, depending on crew. The next leg will be daylight motoring on the Intracoastal Waterway to Beaufort, NC for four days. The final leg will be down the coast to FL, and will take 3-10 days, depending on weather conditions, as it it is sometimes prudent to duck back into the meandering ICW.

As you can gather, some flexibility is needed for this trip. "Elizabeth" is safe and comfortable, and we always eat well. If interested, please send me a note, describing your sailing experience and availability.

Thanks,
John Stone
S/V Elizabeth

hello John,

Are you still looking for crew to help sail Elizabeth to Florida? Please check your inbox after logging into the Freedom.org website. There are at least three people interested in crewing for you.

happy sailing
