  1. jamesthecarman

    Experienced crew (2x transantlantics) looking for ocean passage

    Still looking to assist someone with a passage. The volunteering can end as soon as May 11th, so I'm essentially free any time from now. :-)
  2. I've left work to sail and volunteer in sailing communities (BVI's) and have two scenarios for when I can go. I'd love to get in another ocean passage while I'm taking this time away from my career. Note: Most likely scenario is B. A. 5-9 May departure after Antigua Sailing Week. Need to shore it up by 4 May, so I can let the BVI volunteer org know I'm not coming. B. 21 May to mid June departure (or later, but we should be in touch to arrange). I will volunteer at least 2 weeks (7-21 May). Perhaps longer. Perhaps after, I'll be assisting with sailboat repairs with the Jost Van Dyke historic society.

    Ever hitch a ride at Antigua Classics?

    One of the crew on the boat I'm on, was here the week before and found a spot walking the docks. Walking to docks to find a spot is the tried and true method. The regatta might have a Crew/Boat Board as well, which is how I found mine for this. I was also here 4 days early to do dock walking, if needed.

    Experienced racing crew for Antigua Sailing Week

    Deciding between two boats today. Will post here if they both fall through and I'm still looking :-)
  5. Just arrived in Antigua, and looking to race as crew. Quick experience summary: 11 years of sailing, 2 transatlantics, 120+ races as a skipper, PRO, Regatta Chairman, Fleet Captain, Austin Yacht Club's MoonBurn series creator. Last 6 years highlights: Worked on super yachts in '12-'13. J24 Texas circuit crew in '14-15. Won AYC's 2016 MoonBurn Series and 2017 Single Handed Regatta. Here's my racing CV (incl references): https://www.dropbox.com/s/owj1mzq2m4e8m00/James-Parsons-Racing CV.docx?dl=0 I race my own 26' boat in Texas. Can do most any position (incl foredeck), as I trade roles with my crew to stay fresh. Won't clash and cause there to be too many cooks in the kitchen and....can tie bowlines with my feet if the wind dies and we get bored. :-) After Antigua I'm heading to the BVI's to help with hurricane rebuilding. Can help with a delivery that direction. Can be tempted to sail away after a few weeks in the BVI's. I've got all my gear with me (gloves, life jacket, harness, shoes, VHF, etc). I'm 26 with 11 years experience (26 Apr is my 38th bday).
