science and surf under sail

Crew wanted: Amateur crew

JezzaG: To Spread environmental info thru travel, sport, art and day to day life with locals as we sail through the South Pacific. I think there are plenty of people preaching to the converted in the major arteries of society but, I/we can provide the conversations and the divestment of info and understanding through to the a street performer, a busker of citizen science.

Science and Surf under Sail is an organization in it's very most nebulous form...I offer it to you to mould and shape together with me.

The general concept is to have a two year cycle through the South Pacific from Southern Baja to New Zealand and back. To have that route posted on a web site in order to attract surfers and marine/environmental students to share in various legs of the journey. We will be willing to deviate from our posted track to suite the purposes of guests based on the merits of their research or activity. I would like to travel in a small armada of sail boats in order to host a larger group of guests and achieve a wider sampling or observation or just plain fun. I would like to have the added dimension of this endeavor to be a sort of correspondent based webisode reporting on environment activities and how the are affecting people and how those people are responding to these environmental impacts on their homes and villages. We would also have a sport report, leisure and fun as well as art and food.

I am good at picking up work as I travel in order to fund my own way. I am presently working as a captain of a high tech power vessel for the rich and famous here in Cabo and La Paz, Mexico. I am also a carpenter/joiner, designer/sculptor...good with my hands and can make most of our day to day maintenance and repairs...mechanical, electrical, plumbing, an understanding of our shipboard systems. Now, I want to create a meaning greater than just my own experience and fun...I am no philanthropist but, I see a way to put back, to give back and have fun doing it. I'd like help...participants as partners and crew.

There's a non-profit, A truly non-profit living that can be achieved. Like the pirate ships, environmental privateers of Oceanic equanimity, we'll share the take equally and one extra for the ship. Should we be somehow fortunate enough to make more that we need it gets forwarded on as the partners and crew deem I am a dreamer...Hey? But, I think it is an imperative that all of us thinking, concerned people that call the seas and oceans of this World "home" become informed, educated and engaged or we truly risk loosing the last bastion of freedom. I can see the technology fast gaining the ability to monitor every moving thing in every remote corner of our planet and once the illegal commercial activities are under control then, yours and mine, our simple activities may come under scrutiny...and it might even seem right to require licenses and permits and fees and charges to move about or live off the land or sea as the case may be. So, we can not become unworthy or irresponsible or complacent with our current freedoms to move about the place.

Many thanks for reading this roughing out of my thoughts but, the final draft will be based on all the input from the founding members...My warmest regards, Jerrid of the "Quo Vadis" 37' Snowgoose, cutter and the "Salvation" 45' wooden Bermuda cutter, ketch a Jim Swanson design I would like to save, needs work.

There is more i would like to add to this, a conversation without end but, for now...A simple and genuine "thank you" for your interest and all the responses to date. It is good to see how many folks are concerned and keen to participate. I work as a captain on a private vessel, I am looking for my line of succession for that roll as I look to the South Pacific.Other characters I would like on board: A marine biologist correspondent, a ocean sport correspondent, web development volunteers, camera type person, maybe a producer type person would be nice, shipwright/carpenter type persons...Seafaring folk, other captains and small ships under sail. Many thanks again...

SVSatori: Seeking experienced and/or interested crew for passage from West Palm Beach or the Bahamas to Bermuda for the Americas Cup Races.

Satori has being undergoing extensive refitting of a couple of her key systems, as well as the addition of 200W of solar panels in WPB, and will be ready and is heading to the Bahamas soon!

From there the plan is to either head back to WPB and then to Bermuda or possibly to sail straight to Bermuda from the Bahamas. After that back to the US and N for the summer.

If the fit is right the opportunity to crew aboard Satori is open ended.

A Smaller Super Yacht

Crew wanted: Deckhand
Vessel: Power Boat
Size:55 f
Location: Mexico
Destination: None
Logged in: 38 minutes ago

CaptJezz: This is a volunteer position ideally suited to a waterperson, that would perhaps have plenty of unlogged sea time and experience with private vessels on an amateur basis and would see this position as a step-stone towards a career as a paid Capt, engineer or crew. I capt. this vessel for a private family that enjoy long weekends or vacationing down here on the Southern Baja. We trip between La Paz and Cabo for the most part with some runs up to Loreto or out to the local Islands around La Paz.

In Cabo we prep the vessel and typically pilot the boat for the owner, family and guests for day trips, sunset cruises, etc… In La Paz, we prep the ship and the owner often pilots themselves for a weekend aboard in a quiet bahia anchorage, we then cast off and catch. The work we do apart from cleaning and polishing and keeping the vessel in Show Condition also includes; basic engine maintenance and service, the watermaker, gen-set, other filters and seawater strainers, electrical and electronic maintenance and service. We strive and succeed at having a state of readiness and presentation with little or no unanticipated down time of the ship, anticipating problems. We also do the airport run and other odd livery services for the owner and guests and maintain that vehicle. That’s the big picture.

This ship is on the Smaller side of the “Super Yacht” but, that means we wear many hats. Your part would be focused on the deck work underway, watching out for people/kids as they might move about the boat, participating in cleaning and polishing, bottom scrubbing and participating and gaining experience in other repairs and service as time permits. This is not a fishing boat, you must be housebroken. While we do not typically provide “Silver Service” you should know silver service exists. You will also get some time and experience at the helm. I will do what I can to make this a valuable experience, indeed a step-stone.

Room and board are available, modest. We have accommodation ashore in both places. There is typically plenty of time between the action and you should be able to enjoy the local flavor. We have, available for your use; a quiver of surfboards, dive and snorkel gear, we have our own dinghy’s one w/10 and one w/15hp, we also have a 37’ sailing cat (needs some work). On work days expenses will be provided for. In many ways this is a family affair so, we enjoy sharing meals, a drink or 2 and hope you’ll fit in with that sort of thing.

I have a 3 month trial period on this but, it could be extended by mutual agreements. Looking forward to your responses. I am going to review application and make a decision over the next week and would like to move forward relatively quickly from there. Please be ready to travel on short notice.

transat West to East adventure

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat

kaicarno: update: 28th March 2017 -->
USA to Europe

Crew wanted for an exciting trip to Europe with the intention of finding adventure and exploring new places. Total miles to sail about 5000, including the cruising in Europe.

The crew which I am looking for does not need experience. I usually work on a first come, first serve basis. Communal living experience is a big plus if you don't already have sailing experience.

I have a lot of work to do before the boat is ready to leave for the crossing. I am now looking for crew who would like to come to the boat earlier, so as to help prepare the boat. This is a good chance to learn more about boats and boat maintenance. For all days of work I will provide food and accommodation (on board), as well as drinks etc. I would like to have help from the 14th April.

--- The Sailing ---

This is a transatlantic passage on a small boat. It will take 3 to 4 weeks. Once in Europe we are free to route our voyage onwards. My idea is to explore West coast of Ireland. Then round the Northern cape of Ireland (Malin Head) to then visit Scotland. The Voyage finishes in August in Brittany, northern France.

Important dates (preliminary ETA/D - Estimated Time of Arrival/Departure):

19th April: ETD North Carolina.
25 days transat 2400 miles

14th May - ETA Azores.
10 days to explore the islands. 500 miles.

25th May - ETD Azores.
9 days passage. 1100 miles.

3rd June - ETA Ireland.
3 weeks cruising Ireland. 500 miles.

24th June ETD Ireland/ETA Scotland.
4 weeks to cruise in Scotland and making progress South.

22nd July ETD Scotland/ETA England
One week English South coast.

29th ETD England/ETA France.
One week Northern coast of Brittany in France.

5th August and onwards.
Some work and preparation for leaving the boat.
Voyage over.

--- The yacht ---
The yacht is a Jeanneau Melody from the 1980's. She is a famous French build and a very Ocean-worthy vessel. In France most sailors know the make.

The mast is high, and the keel is deep. We have new sails all round, including an excellent spinnaker.

--- The Conditions ---

This is a good trip for anyone wanting to learn more about sailing, and simply sail more miles.
In the tidal areas in Ireland, England and France we will have excellent training for navigation. On the transatlantic passage I have a sextant and some experience using it.

There is flexibility for when to join and leave the boat, and also how many people we are on board. The boat needs at least 2 crew, and we can be up to 6.

We run a shared expenses deal on board. Generally ports and harbours are very cheap so the expenses will never be high. A good estimate is 15 euro/usd per day per person

We will cook on board and eat well. The food is less meat and more dried food and vegetables plus fish if we catch any (No refrigeration) .

--- The Skipper ---

I am a qualified yacht master and experienced sailor. In fact I have crossed the Atlantic 12 times by sailing boat. I am aged 30. Total miles logged are about 108.000 miles on sailing boats 60 feet or less.

I speak French (to some extent), English and Swedish.

Please visit my homepage at: (although this is very outdated now) to find out more about me. Contact me through is best.

I don't mind being asked to give references from previous crew.
