|i sailed with a guy from key west to cuba then to isla mujeres. where the boat still is we got there on mon 22 oct 07.the boat is a 40ft creekmore cutter by the name world wind , i dont normally say things about others but this is all about safety.
The guy whos boat it is is 65 and has supposely been sailing racing and in merchant marines for 30 years so you would think hed have some idea of navigation and how to sail.....wrong hes dangerous. the boat is also unclean and leaks profoundly from every port hole and hatch.
Now i flew from the uk to sail around the world with this guy ,an experience i had in such a short trip as i had only just learnt to sail a few weeks previous in the uk but have been on a number of different motor boats for some years. Another reason for not staying with the boat two ports , one couldnt find the sea buoy on isla mujeres with was a mile off on the gps and running aground in cuba as he couldnt keep the boat in the channel on a calm clear day ..there is more..but thats enough. But one other thing is a kind person and i wished him all the best in anything he does for the future. but if you decide to sail make sure you visit the boat first|
