    Default Possible crew on return?

    Hey all,
    As of now Karen and I are still going to Kauai for vacation from July 29th thru August 11th. I'm just wondering out loud here, but I thought that if anyone needs a crew member on the return trip, that'd still be a chance for me to cross the Pacific. Right now the return trip looks pretty daggone inviting.

    I received this email, so I'm passing it along. Please contact Sabine directly.



    Dear Synthia,

    I am writing to you about the SHTP 2008 today not as a potential participant (not there yet, skill-wise) but to add my name to a list (if it exists) of people interested in crewing on a delivery of a SHTP boat back form Hawaii. I did hear from a close friend who has participated in the SHTP 1978 that some skippers do appreciate help in bringing their boats back to the West Coast and I would be very interested in this kind of trip as a tremendous learning opportunity.

    A little bit about myself and sailing - I am 33 and an engineer by training. I started sailing when I moved to California six years ago and have since sailed on boats of all sizes (13' to 52'). I have owned and partially rebuilt a Cal 25 for two years and recently partnered with another local Cal owner on a cruising Cal 3-30. I started racing last year with in our local WetWednesday fleet. A few weeks ago I completed my first trans-Pacific passage from Ventura to Hilo.

    Please let me know if you see the possibility of me crewing on a return delivery - and of course feel free to ask me any questions. I'd also love to hear more about your own preparation for the SHTP,

    Best regards,

    Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship. Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip.
    Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship. On your way to a world that others might have missed.
