Sailing in the Caribbean and Central America

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:16 m
Location: Colombia
Destination: Panama
Logged in: 55 minutes ago

Sy Fairwinds: This is not an add from a lonely old man looking to find a relationship, nor is it an add from a older couple to find someone to take care of the dirty or heavy tasks.

We are a young and energetic group of people looking for like-minded people to take part in the adventure of a lifetime, and share the costs related to it. No paid position, shared costs

Give me a shout if you are interested to join the crew.
More info and contact no

Best regards

Adventure Sailing in the Caribbean and Central America - 2017/2018

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:33 f
Location: Antigua and Barbuda
Destination: Colombia
Logged in: 1 days ago

Tsamaya: Tsamaya sailed from Scandinavia autumn 2016 and the thought about sailing around the world is growing stronger and stronger.
But there is no rush..

The Caribbean and Central america need some attention before we move on to the next big ocean.

Right now Tsamaya is on Guadeloupe and next steps are Antigua, Barbuda and St Martin to do some work on the boat.
After that next destination is Jamaica, with some unclear stops on the way.

Not looking for paid crew.
Need to have a open mind and a big heart.
On Tsamaya we share the workload and expenses the daily cost is around 30€/per day

No need to know how to sail, Ill teach you.
But be ready for some proper sailing, the engine is shit so we sail everywhere. the dingy has no engine so we row. The kitchen has no fridge but I guarantee you will get some of the best meals in your life. The anchor has no winch so we use our pull it up by hand!

If are a filmmaker, pirate, electrician, hussler or have some other interesting thats a plus.

Check out the fb page for updates on current locations and to see some photos.

One Love!

Gillean Guy

One Crew Wanted, Ecuador and the South Pacific

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:44 f
Location: Ecuador
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 2 days ago

Gillean Guy: Skipper on newer, clean, safe boat seeks one crew, short or long term, for trip from Ecuador to Tahiti with long stops in the Galapagos, Marquesas and Tuamotus. No experience necessary--will teach. I pay boat expenses, you kick in something for provisions. I would like someone who is adventuresome, willing to contribute to boat maintenance and upkeep, open minded, likes travelling to new places, can tolerate challenge and adversity and loves sailing, or has a keen desire to learn. I am fit, in good health (like to run when I can), don't smoke or use drugs, like a sundowner (or two), can accommodate others and provide references. I seek the same in crew. Female crew is preferred--a platonic relationship is presumed, but a romantic one, if mutually desirable, would be nice. Gillean is a 42' newer Valiant I had built for sailing around the world--strong, comfortable and fun to sail, outfitted with a full compliment of communications and safety gear. If interested, write to me at sailboat dot gillean at gmail dot com. Cheers!


Relaxed island hoping in the Caribbean

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:15 m
Location: Bahamas, The
Destination: Colombia
Logged in: 3 days ago

Wispa: I am currently sailing The Bahamas, and will stay South of San Salvador and Est of Long Island until late June.
By end of June or early July, I will depart from Great Inagua on a passage to Colombia, with perhaps a short stop in Jamaica, to arrive in Colombia and Panama before hurricane season starts, and spend the next 5 months in that area.
Have been sailing the Eastern part of the Caribbean for most of the past 3 years, between St Martin and French Guyana, and logged over 6000 miles once we got to South Carolina in the US, where the boat sat at a Marina For 8 months.
Looking for crew/company for any or all segments.
I don't smoke and I don't drink. Very sportive, like to do paragliding when I can and fell in love with spearfishing, doing it whereever possible.
I was born in Argentina and moved to the US 12 years ago. Have been living on the boat for most of this past 3 years.


Adventure from Cartagena to Sapzurro/Capurgana via the San Bernardos Islands

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Power Boat
Size:42 f
Location: Colombia
Destination: None
Logged in: 3 days ago

Chappy: I love this trip because it is an excellent blend of all the things great about the cruising lifestyle no matter what your experience level with out long ocean passages (the longest hop is 12 hours) while still giving new lessons and experiences to seasoned crew. Starting June 25 in the historic city of Cartagena Colombia this shared expense trip takes you off the beaten path to some rarely visited unspoiled islands (Tintipan, Isla Fuerte) and into the heart of the Daren Gap and hard to get to Sapzurro/Capurgana Colombia and back. On this trip you will have access to freediving, surfing, hiking, native culture and some unspoiled locations.

The Boat: A 3 Stateroom 42ft Bristol Trawler with 2 heads. Her layout provides a feeling of comfort with out feeling over crowded. I brought this boat down here 2 years ago from Mystic Ct and have been cruising here in these waters since. We have a 11ft dingy, 3 paddleboards, snorkle gear and more.

The Captain: 40 year Southern California who lives in Cartagena. Sailing and power boating my whole life I have accumulated many miles. Since 2012 I have accumulated nearly 14,000 miles alone, over 5000 of which were sailing single handed.

Panama to Colombia

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:32 f
Location: Panama
Destination: Colombia
Logged in: 4 days ago

Rapte: Need crew, at least one person. Prefer two. So that would mean, taking turns on watch, doing general upkeep and cleaning and repairs if things break, and enjoying the ride.I am on a 32' sailboat, Lloyd's certified with lots of safety equipment. I am using Chris Parker, meteorologist to guide me with weather, routing and advice. He is the guru of guiding boats in the Caribbean and is well respected by boaters for his advice including delivery captains.

If you have sailing knowledge then so much the better. However it is important to me as to your character and skills that you have. I would therefore need a resume, and at least 2 references with phone #s of people who know you in general. They must be verifiable on the internet as to their phone #s, could be past employer(s), professional, such as accountant, prof., doctor, person of clergy, any religion including Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, etc...

If you are interested, please let me know if you wish further detail.
Hoping to hear from you one way or the other.

Dates listed are flexible as to when I get crew. I expect the trip to take from 3 to 6 weeks, probably closer to 4 wks. For bays listed below, Crew would have opportunity to explore the waters, snorkel, etc...will try different anchorages
Route that is planned may change according to situation and is tentative.

Portobello to San Blas Islands. 104 nm. Anchor overnight. 3 days
San Blas to Tiburon, Col. 56 nm. Anchor overnight.3-5 days
Tiburon to Bania Colombia, Col. 57 nm. Anchor overnight. 4-5 days
Bania Col to Cispata 135 nm. Anchor overnight.6-8 days
Cispata to Barbacoas 51 nm Anchor overnight 6-8 days
Barbacoas to Cartagena 78 nm 1 day
My Sailing resume-
Myself- sailing for 46 years from an 8' Sabot to 38' C&C Landfall. Owned about 20 different keelboats of several makes, raced some (1st. in the club for the year once- laser), sold them. Sailed the New York Barge canal from St. Clair Lake, Michigan to NYC, to Havana, Cuba, to Marathon, Fl., from Hopetown, Bahamas to Jacksonville, Fl.,crossed Lake Ontario four times, and Erie and the San Juans/Puget Sound/Vancouver Island many times. Miami to Panama. Most of this is single handed.
Expenses- I dont expect it to cost a lot. I hope to mostly sail if not all the way, at least most of the way.. However if poor or no winds, then we have to motor. And before we leave, we visit a grocery store and stock up on food supplies. We may have to pay for anchoring fees in the San Blas islands and maybe some fees in Tiburon. I prefer to anchor, and save on fees rather than pay marinas. But the boat may need protection from thieves.
Passport acceptable for countries going through, valid of at least 7 or 8 months. Hope to leave asap or when I line up crew. Prefer mid May, 2017.
Boat- Westerly 32, Fulmar sailboat, fin keel, good reputation English boat. As for heavy weather, I can assure you that the boat can take it. I don't expect heavy, however, if it happens, we go to a 3rd reef asap, lash the tiller to port or starboard, and wait out the storm. My boat heaves to beautifully.
Installed a new Symrad Nav. System with radar including a depth sounder.
-iPad with 2 nav programs and built in gps.
-new chart plotter-familiarising myself.
-New auto pilot.
-New arc or tower to support 2 solar panels and inflatable dingy.
-New wind generator with special quiet blades
-New Ritchie bulkhead compass
-New dodger
-New Fortress #23 anchor.
-New Rocna anchor
-New traveler
-New Dutchman system for lowering sails quickly.
-5 gel batteries bank, one for motor, 4 for house.
-new Condor Fish Finder, Depth Sounder.
Regarding Equipment:
1. 2 liferafts for 6 persons but it have not been re-certified.
2. inflatable tender with oars.
3. Marine VHS with GPS and AIS receiving only, several handhelds.
4. weather reports and routing- Chris Parker.
Overall Sailing Matters:
No alcohol while boat is at sea.
No smoking in boat- outside okay away from the wind.
You will be required to sign a waiver.
I am the captain.
If you have more knowledge than me in a certain area, then I may defer to you.
