Greetings, my name is Chuck! I’m planning a sailing trip to the South Pacific tropics and beyond in my Cabo Rico 34 sailboat, and looking for 1-2 crewmembers to join.
We’ll depart San Francisco Bay around July-September 2021 and leisurely head south along the coast toward San Diego. From there we’ll join the Baja Haha rally into Mexico, then the Pacific Puddle Jump rally to French Polynesia.
After that it’s up to us! Tahiti, Fiji, Bali, New Zealand, Thailand, Madagascar? The voyage will last as long as we want it to.
No fee or payment will be required or accepted for the trip; however, you’ll be expected to “pay your own way” for personal expenses such as food, visas and entry/exit fees, transportation at destinations, dining out and entertainment, and so on.
Think you might be interested in joining? Visit the Crew Application!
Attention ladies. This ship is a respectful environment. My little sis Leslie (check out our vid here) and friend Nina are on shore-based support. Happy to provide references upon request. Any questions or concerns please feel free to enquire.
