Bahamas Charter Crew Needed

I will be operating charters in Exumas of Bahamas from mid January thru mid May 2019-20. My service will be more casual than the 5 star, chocolate-tree-houses for dessert types. Ideally I'd love to find a sailing soulmate who'd care to share in this adventure to include all things "first mate" from help docking to meal making, night watches and general boat help.

This will be a paid position with shared tips. it depends on experience and skills. An important matter would be our personality fit - I am flexible, quick to laugh/joke, serious when necessary and treasure honesty and forthright integrity.

I welcome anyone with interest, availability, wild humor, stamina, sound judgement with passion for blue water adventure. It would rock to find a mate with whom romance flourished.

Respectfully, I am aghast at the destructive individual in the White House at the moment and am actively involved in protests, advocacy for the climate, opposing income inequality et al. So, Trump supporters while I would gladly lend a hand at sea as fellow souls however I would prefer not as crew, again respectfully.

I play a half decent amateur jazz clarinet and would love other musicians to play with.

Your questions are welcome - if this looks like an boat you'd like to sail let's open a conversation and see where it goes.

Fair winds to all!
