This is a callout to the explorers out there! S/V Sparrow will be returning from the Bahamas to New York City beginning in March. I'm looking for one or two crew to join me for either the entire length of the route - or certain legs, with a week being the minimum amount of time. Below is a list of the possible legs. There are many cities between these routes - all of which are possible pick up and drop off points. The journey will be a mix of inland waterways and offshore legs. Decisions in regards to this are weather dependant.

Nassau, Bahamas -> Fort Lauderdale, FL ---- March 19-March 26.

Fort Lauderdale, FL -> St Augustine, FL ---- March 26-April 1.

St Augustine, FL -> Charleston, SC ---- April 1-April 8.

Charleston, SC -> Wrightsville Beach, NC ---- April 8 - April 12.

Wrightsville Beach, NC -> Norfolk, VA ---- April 12 - April 18.

Norfolk, VA -> Cape May, NJ ---- April 18 - April 24.

Cape May, NJ -> New York, NY ---- April 24 - April 27.

This is a rough date guide. Things could change - but only slightly. Just shoot me a message if something doesnt quite line up - and we can try and figure something out.

This route is pretty cool - with lots to see and do. I've already done it and know all the good spots along the way. Experience is not required. A great learning opportunity for anyone interested in boats, sailing, and cruising. Being 28 means I like to bring a young vibe to the boat. We often end up exploring the cities we visit - checking out the sites, sounds, bars, and events along the way. Fun is a priority.

S/V Sparrow is pretty set up for cruising - with lots of stuff to do. Fishing equipment, spearfishing equipment, snorkle equipment, longboards, dinghy with outboard, games, etc. She is a safe and stable boat - with all new engine and nav equipment.

If you are interested in exploring the citites and waterways of the eastern seaboard while learning to sail - shoot me a message and we can talk more.
