Deckhand - Temporary / Seasonal - $Min 500 USD - United States

June 1, 2023 to September 15, 2023

Newport, RI to the East coast of Newfoundland and back to Newport.

Looking for a capable crew hand with experience, I have mostly had female crew in the past and it’s been a good fit (happy to provide references). Open to working with men as well.

- Some sailing experience/knowledge necessary but could be trained over a couple of weeks if you do not have larger vessel experience. You must know at the very least your points of sail and have experienced them on the water.
-Physically fit with good balance and stamina
-Knowing if you get sea sick would be nice
-No smoking
-No drugs.
-Light drinking, social or no drinking. No drinking while underway.
-Able to live in a confined environment for days at a time and entertain yourself
-Enjoy being outdoors, hiking etc

What is expected:
-Day and night watch standing (between three to four hours shifts) when underway.
-Sharing in the cooking and cleaning
-Positive outlook

What you can expect:
-A skipper with over 50K, many of them offshore, who favors safe decisions and that listens to the needs and suggestions of the crew
-Well kept boat with very good sailing abilities
-Your own cabin/shared bathroom
-All vessel costs and food paid for

Pay: dependent on skill level and negotiable. No one will get onboard without some sort of pay.

Info about the trip:
-Leave from Newport RI and cruise southern New England for crew and skipper to learn to work together.
-Leave around July 1 for Nova Scotia.
- Several stops along the east coast of Nova Scotia.
-French Islands of St Pierre et Miquelon/South West coast of Newfoundland and East Coast of Newfoundland.
-May cruise in tandem with another vessel
-I may have my wife and or daughters or one couple onboard for portions. Should that happen crew would not be expected to do more. Everyone contributes equally to daily life on board (cooking and cleaning).

About myself: My wife and I have raised two daughters, and we spent 4 years cruising and living on the boat with them. I consider myself open minded and enjoy good discussions. I have taught sailing (three years) and have been a charter skipper (nine years). I can provide references from former crew for people who are serious about getting onboard as well as a complete resume.

Typically I would like to have a couple of face to face chats and if possible references from former skippers/crew you have sailed with in the past.
