My normal ride is healing from last year so I'm reaching out at the last minute. I'm experienced, a paramedic and don't mind the crap watches. P.S. I can cook as well as douse the spinnaker at 3:00 am. Never posted before...

I am coming in from the west coast for the HMR. Unfortunately my ride, Millennium Express, has had to withdraw due to mechanical issues. So, I need a ride. Anyone need last minute crew? I believe I'm qualified for ocean passages with a couple transpacs, Newport Bermudas, Cabos, Pineapple cups and such. Lots of HMRs and a couple Vera Cruzs. Lots of them with podium finishes. Everything from minis to Maxis. Will do what I'm told. Never yell or argue. Will help your boat go fast. Never give up. Can crew anywhere on the boat. So what do you say? Need one more crew? I don't take up much room. Did I mention I have a condo in Port A? kell@kai-vai.com 949-836-7769

S/V Tango looking for 2-3 additional crew to compliment our existing 3 man crew. Average age of the crew is 30. Boat is a Dufour 31. This will be my third HMR since 2008. Our priorities in order are safety, fun and speed. Thanks for looking!

I have just relocated to Houston from Massachusetts. When I lived in Massachusetts, I crewed as foredeck on a Farr 37, moored at Marblehead, Massachusetts, and raced in regattas in Massachusetts Bay. I am 40 years old, very athletic, weigh 150 pounds, versatile and easy-going.

Fit male. Have raced on multihulls. Own and single hand 34 ft monohull. Plenty of sailing experience. Can add strength to the team as trimmer or on the chute. Easy to get along with and good humor added bonus.

Hey there me and my girlfriend are hoping to participate in this year's harvest moon regatta. I have a few years sailing experience. I worked as a charter crew member for a company in Greece which included being a cook, a janitor, and able to sort out minor problems that arose. Plus I got some amazing sailing experience. In addition to that I participated in the 2014 Harvest moon regatta in which our boat won first in our class. My girlfriend has basically zero sailing experience but is eager to learn. Contact me if interested.

Seeking a boat for 2014 Harvest Moon Regatta. 56 year old, non-smoker, I work out a few hours a week so I'm in actually very good shape. 50T license (I studied and passed, don't use for work). Industrial Engineer. Have sailed a good bit yet I'm no expert. Have owned a Bristol 24 and a Tanzer 27. Call me a good sailor and a good deck hand. I have no ego needs beyond being asked to do a good job. Can't stand captains who yell. I am an encouraging team mate. Can come through in a pinch when the chips are down. Call or Text Joe @ 219-689-3570. I live in Katy.

Looking for a hand to assist in bringing your boat back from Port-A? I am a 55 year old native Texan that enjoys sailing. I live on Burnet Bay in Baytown and have bare-boat-cruised many times in the BVI as Captain/crew. I am self-sufficient and bring my talents to any team I join to make things more enjoyable to all. I can cook, bar tend, captain or crew. Experienced in electronics and maintenance, HAM radio, nav systems, radar, ship-to-shore radios, and know my way around boats and the Texas coast. I have owned from 13ft-32ft power, 12ft-41ft sail most of my life and love the water. I have even jumped out of perfectly good airplanes. My schedule is wide open and I can generally depart with short notice almost any day of the week you want to return. Thanks - Jer

Experienced crew of 9 looking for a boat to race in Harvest Moon. Unfortunately our boat has to withdraw due to mechanical issues that will not be remedied in time for the race. Do you have a boat that you want to race in HMR, but couldn’t find crew or wasn’t sure yourself? Let us race it for you! We have hundreds of hours of offshore racing experience and have done the HMR numerous times. We have taken multiple 3rd and 2nd in class for the HMR and still chasing that illusive 1st! We have our own accommodations in Port A, just need a fast ride to a good party. I have guys coming in from California, Oregon and Ft. Worth to do this race and everyone still wants to go. Other than a whole boat, we can be parsed out to fill slots on other boats. Preferably racing, but we realize that we cannot be choosey at this point. A few of us can even assist with the return trip. Please, let me know. Thanks, Christopher Dees 713.823.1577

Howdy yall! I was looking forward to sailing the Harvest Moon this year for the first time, but unfortunately my skipper/boat withdrew (and I just found out about it). I have never raced in a regatta like this... I raced competitively at Texas A&M (graduated class of 2009), and have bare-boat cruised with my family throughout the Caribbean every-other year since around 2001-2002. While I may not be the most experienced, I REALLY want to learn and start getting involved in the sailing community again! I am 26 years old, very athletic (still run and play competitive soccer), and have a really easy and outgoing nature, so I think I would be awesome to be a crew on your boat! Feel free to text/call/email me for more info or questions. Thanks!!!! Fiona

I've owned or crewed boats (the kind that have tall poles in the middle with bedsheets tied to them as opposed to engine-driven, noisy, breakdown-prone gas guzzlers - you know: those hulks we true men of the sea call flotsam) of all types and sizes up to 63' since my early teens. Can handle anything up to 50' single-handedly. Not by choice and not an ego thing - I just had a great instructor who insisted we know how to get things done solo at critical times - like docking in a crowded basin with a stiff breeze on the beam, etc. Done the bare boat thing a couple of dozen times everywhere in the world except the S. Pacific and Seychelles. I know boats from stem to stern (not wild about cats), rigging, systems, routines, how to handle MOST moderate issues with a diesel and/or electronics and, most importantly, how to accept and follow a skipper's orders to the letter - make CORRECT log entries, maintain charts when underway (electronic or paper). Fun to be with when it's time for fun, but strictly serious when on watch - dogwatch always preferred - I'm a star junkie. Not a fanatical America's Cup-type racing wannabee, but I'll hitch up to the jack-lines and pop a spinnaker right along with the best of them. Name a knot and I can probably tie the thing - Portuguese bowline, anyone? A desk-time passion from my former life in corporate America - a highly decorated vet from the Suit & Tie Wars), know Chapman's Piloting from cover to cover and have owned boats all my life until selling C'est la Breeze - Cat 30' Mk III - just prior to moving to Port A about two years ago. A nut about cleanliness and keeping lines organized, tools ready to go, you know - basic marlinspike seamanship. The kind of guy who can fix a decent meal in stiff seas. In other words, no bologna sandwiches slapped together in the cockpit. Paid my way through college working summers & a semester or three at sea in the Merchant Marine & still have a valid Coast Guard "Z card" - I believe. Rated as an Oiler/Wiper but in addition to engine room & grueling deckhand work - anchor handling - for months on end all over the Gulf, managed to annoy the Captain by hanging out in the wheelhouse to watch & learn when off duty. Mastered Loran C, radio lingo & dead reckoning chart basics (this was 1978-80 and that's what we had), but also picked up the triangles and become fairly proficient at offshore NAV, set & drift, tide tables, all that fun stuff. Have ASA and NSAA tickets for Coastal NAV, Offshore, Cruising & the other basics - even Celestial Nav. I tend to think 3-4 steps ahead at all times (landfall timing, currents, etc.), particularly with regards to safety. Not my favorite job, but I'm not afraid to head over the side to unsnarl some idiot's old nets from the prop, shaft & keel (so long as I hide the engine keys prior to taking the plunge. Aged 53 and packing an extra lb. or two of ballast at the waistline, but otherwise in perfect crusty old bosun shape - tend to be the guy who ends up at the chart table & helm when everyone else is chundering over the side in a nasty following sea. In a nutshell, the kind of guy who lets the skipper catch a full off-watch nap with no worries & never raps on the cabin door without a stiff mug of molasses-like joe for said skipper. Cool under pressure & experienced enough to know that if you think there might be a squall building far out on the horizon, you're already 10 minutes behind in taking in a reef or furling up half the foresail. Safety is absolutely #1 for me and I WILL NOT take short cuts that put vessel or crew at risk in even the slightest way - period - so don't ask. Saw way too many accidents in the days before OSHA figured out they were five years behind all the renegade companies going wild all over in the Gulf 35 years ago. Also, if your boat isn't in darned near Bristol shape for serious blue-water cruising - i.e., all systems in tip-top shape, plenty of spares, all safety gear checked out annually & a skipper who knows what to call the pointy end of the vessel - I ain't your guy. Missed the big regatta this year, but live in Port A and am always looking for any type of cool blue-water adventure - I hear there may be some other lesser fleet-type things that head to Mexico during the winter - would be very cool indeed - Yo hablo Espanol. Self employed, so I'm available to step aboard pretty much any time. Glad to crew on deliveries, too. I work well with pretty much anyone, but prefer laid-back pros who actually know what they're doing. Final note: There's a big blob on the charts showing an underwater obstruction called "Von Bock's Rock" just outside the harbor entrance to Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda. I'll die a happy and successful sailor if I NEVER have anything on a chart named after me, as I'd bet a four-hour wheel watch that Von Bock's keel - maybe his boat, too - is laying right next to Von Bock's Rock. Not good. Argghh & aye, aye, Skipper. Let's go sailing. - Jim

I am a 47yr old male, 150lbs, non-smoker and in good shape. I have sailed Hobie Cats my whole life, so I know the wind. Sold my 14 and 16 Cats and bought a Ericson 36' in a desire for the blue water. I was in the navy for 8 years (don't take it too seriously, I was a photojournalist). My weakness is not knowing big boats (but I am reading Annapolis cover to cover). Strengths; can take orders, know how to keep my mouth shut, focused on the task, take great pictures, and I enjoy and get along with most people.

I am 43 years old, young and fit. I have participated in the Harvest Moon 8 times, my first one was in 1999, and I have 30 years of sailing experience. I own a Catalina 42 that I entered the last 2 years, but am not entering it this year. I own a late night restaurant, and so am habitually awake and alert between the hours of 8pm and 8am, which I have found comes in handy when navigating the unlit platforms after the moon sets, or if an early morning squall comes in.
