Pick only one of these four words: Skipper (you will take people out in your boat), Crew (you have experience), Novice (willing to learn), or Fun (not interested in learning).

Skipper and Master Mariner

For non-skippers, describe your boating experience in order to assist skippers in choosing their crew. For skippers, explain your expectations from people on your boat.

I expect people to pitch in depending on their abilities with whatever needs to be done to help sail the Statia and to show some interest in the process. Galley and cleaning help are always welcomed as well!

List the boating activities that interest you (learning, teaching, recounting my travels, casual sailing, sailing races, motoring, overnight trips, long-range trips, etc.).

Cruising...and teaching Crew about classic Navigation from the Stars...

Tell us about your boat if you have one (type, size, name, home port) or answer "none" otherwise.

60' Steel-Hulled Classic-Rigged Schooner


I have spent all of my adult life Skippering Tall Ships - running cruises to Alaska, French Polynesia, Hawaii, Japan, and the Caribbean Islands. I will be happy to share my experience in navigation, pilotage, seamanship and celestial navigation.

What Claude L. is saying about this Meetup Group

My son Dominique founded this group and I think it is just fantastic! It gives people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it a chance to go sailing with experienced Skippers and learn all of the ins and outs of Seamanship. It's also nice for the Skippers as well who might otherwise be sailing alone -- creating an opportunity for fellowship, sharing food & drink and some really enjoyable experiences.
