Inside Passage - Washington to Alaska

Currently looking for someone to help at the helm while sailing the Inside Passage from Port Townsend, Washington to Juneau, Alaska. Planning to start in the beginning of June 2022.

I‘m planning on cruising very slow, enjoying sights and staying at scenic anchorages for a couple days to hike and explore the islands. This summer is going to be a one way sail to Alaska for me, and I’ll return south the following (2023) summer.

No sailing experience required. Couples will be considered, but an individual is preferred. I can meet a crew member at the airport in Seattle or Vancouver or anywhere along the route. You’re welcome to crew for anywhere between a week and a couple months. It’s important to me that the crew has a positive attitude and communicates nonviolently. Also looking for individuals who are open minded, easy going, low maintenance, and eager to learn & work.

Crew would be asked to help with the basics, such as holding the helm, flaking sails, and assisting with docking. I’d expect crew to contribute to keeping the boat clean and tidy in shared spaces belowdecks. Despite the small space, pets and bicycles are welcome aboard. Bring your wetsuit as well!

We can negotiate shared expenses such as food.

  • Boat descriptionUnique, fiberglass pocket yacht built in 1967. Beautiful, classic lines. Very comfortable above and belowdecks. The boat is relatively small, being 26 feet on deck with a substantial 6 foot bowsprit. The beam is 8 feet and she has a 4 foot draft. Displacement is around 7000lbs. Rigged as a mast head sloop. Mainsail hand sewn by Carol Hasse for her personal boat, it has 2 reef points. I carry 3 different foresails of different sizes. Two single berths in the main saloon next to the companionway and one double berth in the forecastle. The main cabin has 6’1“ standing head room. The galley has a large wood burning stove, used for cooking, heat, and drying out. There‘s no refrigeration, autopilot, roller furlers, or anchor windlass aboard. I typically single hand and live aboard at anchor. Main anchor is 35# delta, I carry several spares as well. I rely on solar instead of shore power. The boat does have a 15hp outboard in a well, but I almost never use it, and prefer relying on wind and currents to travel. Jacklines run on both sides the length of deck.
