    • Checked in 14 hours ago

Explore Mexico and beyond.

I’ll be headed south to Ensenada Mexico to clear customs.  Then continue south down the Baja coast to La Paz to explore the sea of cortez.  I will be making stops along the way. The trip could take from 10 to 15 days.

 What I’m looking for in a crew member.  
Someone to share with daily and ongoing boat chores. Provisioning, standing watch, basically anything to do with sailing and life on a boat. 

What I want from you.
 Someone who is relaxed, wants to have fun, easy going, tidy, and wants to have an adventure.

What you get from me.
Adventure on a 45 foot sailboat, sailing knowledge & 1,000 miles of experience, private room port aft cabin.
What you will learn.
Basic sailing skills, anchoring, knots, basic coastal navigation, life aboard, standing watch, docking, dinghy, light maintenance, route planning,
 About me. I’m 57, widowed for 7 years, and retired for 6 years. Sense of humour. I have been told I’m pretty easy to get along with.
I’m not looking for romance, but always enjoy making new friends.
 I don’t do drugs, or drink to excess and expect the same. 
I prefer to anchor out over staying at marinas. 

Boat costs are on me, moorage, repairs etc. 
I expect you to cover your personal expenses, and your share of the food cost.

The boat is a 2017, 45 foot Beneteau oceanis. 
You can look it up on line, 3 cabin 2 heads.
Bedding, towels, etc supplied.

Safety First


Only stayed on Syds boat for a couple days, but it was a beautiful boat!!! Unfortunately weather and delays caused problems and we never left the dock. I felt Syd held his crews safety in high regard and wish him well on his journey.
