Double-Handing Pacific Seacraft 40 Long Term Voyage Making with Solid Crew Commitment

Next Sail Plan/Route from base in Puerto Vallarta MX wide open, depends on crew commitment and coronavirus factors.

South America? Europe via Boston, Nova Scotia transiting the Panama Canal?

Captain Bryon sails with one or two experienced crew depending on voyage length.

This is voyage planning and making, not hitch hiking on the ocean. When it works on SV Bella Sirena, alle smiler. You know what it means to adapt as a norm and you have experienced situational awareness on watch and off watch. Captain assumes most voyage expenses/costs for crew with voyage commitment and a keen sense of the opportunity.

Pacific Seacraft 40 bluewater Cutter refitted 2018 - 2019 ... in Bristol condition, solar, water maker, late model integrated B and G nav instruments, Iridium Go/Predict Wind, etc., lying Ensenada MX.

You are experienced preferably with offshore nautical miles in the sail resume, and mechanical aptitude skills, cooking and musical talents a plus ... or all the above! Hey ask for what you want in life!

Skilled/hard-working/short of funds? Work exchange relationship feasible. What's the collective dream and the commitment to experience it?

We interview each other and crew commitment long term a factor; coronavirus factors will play in to how we select and bring crew on. Bella is one safe voyage environment and has been since I bought her May 2014.
