Captain - Temporary / Seasonal - $400/day - United States
I am a lifelong sailor with a USCG OUPV license. My yacht insurance requires I have another captain with experience operating sailing vessels ~60 ft. and up accompany me for 100 hours operating the Little Harbor 59 I recently purchased, and sign off on my competency before I can operate the boat alone. This is because I upsized more than 10 feet from prior-owned boats.
I am actively looking for a captain with experience on big sailboats to accompany me, my wife, and son on a short cruise from Newport, RI to Martha’s Vineyard over the long holiday weekend of October 6-9, and if possible an extra 2-3 days of sailing, and then sign off on my competency, so that I can whittle away at the hours needed to remove the operator restriction on my yacht insurance policy. This will be a very comfortable and fun job for the right person. I’m not an overly egotistical skipper, and although I do know how to operate the vessel safely, I never think I know to much to benefit from advice and am always open to learning from others’ experience.
