Experienced 10,000, Ocean / 10,000 Costal

Currently I'm on a 65' power yacht responsible for all Captain and Engineering duties. Underway for two plus years traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Trinidad visiting all the islands within the wind word and leeward chain, then back up the chain west to Cuba, Mexico and south along the Central American coast.

Sailed everything from a sunfish to 65 foot Ocean Cats. (30 Years of experience) (Tornado Racer)
5 Deliveries (3 blue water) First Mate aboard 58 foot Trimaran. Raced multiple years in the Rolex Cup, Copa Velasco (P.R.), and BVI Spring race (CORT series). Check-out and charter captain for Charter Co. USVI
Worked as a rigger in the Independent Boat Yard St. Thomas USVI. Designed and installed communications packages for Cruise ships. Excellent knowledge of all marine systems including electrical, mechanical and engines.
If something breaks or if the conditions are unearthly, I'm the man you want onboard to get you through the tough times.

As well as being a skilled and viable asset to the vessel, I'm a pleasant, easy to get along with, funny, mature team player. I'm sure we'll all have a great time! Looking forward to meeting you.


Skipper/1st mate looking for charters/deliveries

PaulaG: Seeking to focus solely on sailing positions as first mate or skipper. Having held a variety of positions including skipper, first mate, chef, stewardess and deckhand I understand roles on boat and am strongly committed to the ethos of teamwork as such am willing and able to use the range of skills I have developed to organise or assist interior crew when necessary.

In addition to my previous yachting experience, I studied architecture and now I'm developing a blog ( and a youtube channel (Allende los mares). I believe that my knowlegde about several programs, social network, website design and my sense in organization contribute to my suitability for a position helping to develop a private project with brochures, websites, management or video edition.

I really like challenges and I'm looking for a great opportunity to continue learning and developing my career and also to be able to explore new destinations while get a saving up to begin cruising full time (hopefully... next season?).

I love both mountain and sea sports, such as running, bicycling, climbing, fishing, swimming, diving, kayaking, kitesurfing,... Although I am very sportive, one of my passions is reading and writing.

I speak spanish, english, catalan, portuguese and basic french. I don't smoke and take care about alimentation, I prefer eating healthy food rather than trash food.

When I discover the cruising lifestyle I found fascinating the fact of being self-sufficient with no dependence of freshwater and electricity and depending almost only on your own knowledge and instinct, always in contact with nature and having the opportunity to travel to places you could not reach otherwise. Passionate about the exploration and adventure voyages, I am greatly charmed with the cruising lifestyle.

Skipper with no chrage

Age: 47
Nationality: Israeli
Location: Israel

ybzybz: I'm sailing since I was 14, which means that soon I can celebrate 30 years on the water. I've sailed many different sail boats so far, including yachts (I am a certified skipper, with license for up to 100 ton and 75 feet boats). I've instructed sailors, participated in races (won some...;-)), experienced storms as well as emergency situations at sea, but above all - had a lot of fun out there on the water... ;-)

This is not my day job, but I will be happy to serve as skipper (free of charge, except for travel costs) of your vacation or any other sailing purposes. I prefer the Mediterranean sea, but willing to sail also in any other place.

Queries are welcome. I'll be happy to answer any of your questions.

Mark11: Looking to build my sailing resume while meeting some new people. I have a passion for all ocean activities including surfing, diving, fishing (spear and line). I enjoy the culinary arts, both tasting and creating foods from around the world. I have worked /sailed in South America, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, Coastal United States, Caribbean, Bahamas, and Mediterranean on vessels ranging from 9m to 44m in a variety of roles from steward, cook, deckhand and captain.

I have commercial lobster fishing, as well as offshore passage making experience.

I am easy to get along with and thrive in high turnover positions.

Please feel free to contact me for a more detailed description of my work history and references.


Competent, conservative, well rounded sailor (USCG 100T MASTER)

Position (1st): Captain/skipper
Position (2nd): Delivery Crew
Age: 42
Nationality: American
Location: United States
Last logged in: 58 minutes ago

DependableSailor: I completed my solo circumnavigation between 2008 and 2012 in a 30ft sloop and in more recent years completed over 30,000NM's successfully skippering offshore deliveries in yachts from 45 to 75ft. I aspire to see others accomplish their sailing / voyaging goals and I am as comfortable teaching new owners and crew members as well as crewing myself when the right opportunity presents.

For over 8 years now I have been sailing and living exclusively 'on board'. I had the benefit of crewing with excellent mentors / captains early in my sailing career for countless offshore miles while I began preparing for my own solo circumnavigation. Lately I have been cruising the South West Caribbean on my own boat when I'm not helping others accomplish their own offshore sailing ambitions or working mostly long-distance offshore yacht deliveries. I'm comfortable in just about any weather scenario but I still tend to choose safer conservative weather windows. I don't race or even sail for the thrill as much as the reward that accompanies a well met challenge.

While on most assignments I am working as the skipper, I am also keen to crew and work with Captains or Owners and families on their own vessels. Sometimes I even find the right boat going the right direction to be irresistible regardless of the position or compensation available.

I make no claims to be a professional surveyor, rigger, mechanic, engineer, electrician, cook, etc. However I rarely find myself needing the services of those experts as I do know my way around marine engines and have experience maintaining, diagnosing, troubleshooting and repairing most systems on a boat. I lack some experience troubleshooting the less crucial dockside AC electrical systems but I'm fairly comfortable dealing with most shipboard DC 12/24V issues. I've been maintaining VHF and SSB Radio systems since I've been sailing and can usually get to the bottom of an autopilot issue (electric, hydraulic, or even a windvane) when the duty calls. I've dealt with nearly every type of boat challenge at some point or another from unclogging the sink, rebuilding the pump in the head, finding the bad connection, diagnosing the bad battery, un-sticking the roller furler, rebuilding the raw water pump, to putting out the fire, and even serious offshore rigging failures without 'loosing the stick'.... I have also been accused of bringing pelagic fish on board at will without using fishing rods and then transforming them into a mean curry once sashimi starts to get boring. That's still far from saying I could replace or wouldn't value a good engineer or cook on board.

As a skipper I usually start with a thorough survey of the vessel and establish its readiness to go to offshore. I can assist or coordinate all aspects in preparing for an offshore passage of any length. I attract and provide excellent well qualified volunteer crew if required and I also enjoy working with owners or families providing training if desired. After focusing on safety my next priority is to accomplish the passage with minimal or no damage to the vessel in relative comfort. Typically arriving in better condition than our departure.

I am available and do travel on short notice world wide. I have been specializing in skippering deliveries to, from, and through Panama (including San Blas) with over 20 Canal Transits completed in total. I can also assist if you need local knowledge of Panamanian waters, San Blas, or local repairs to prepare for your passage.

I am a U.S.C.G Licensed Captain upgraded to 100 Ton Master including a Sail Endorsement. In 2016 re-certified by the Red Cross in First Aid and CPR. In addition to my skill set and experience I usually supply; Global Medical Insurance. A back up EPIRB and portable digital chart-plotting system complete with world charts. A portable satellite tracking device so owners, in addition to family members of the crew, know our location and status.

If you got this far please read my recent delivery references below and message me so we can discuss how I might help with your sailing plans!
