S/V Elcano will be passaging from Yokohama Japan to Portland, Oregon beginning March 15, 2020. We are seeking a fourth crew member to join an experienced offshore crew.
Elcano is a solid and well maintained off-shore sailing vessel, tested by her current crew over the past 15 years on cruises around the world including Svalbard, Norway, Alaska, Spain, Japan, Panama. All systems including navigation, autopilot, safety, engine, generator, water makers, etc. are carefully maintained and fully functional.
This spring, we will be transiting the Pacific to bring Elcano home to the Pacific Northwest.
The ideal 4th crew member would have off-shore sailing experience, a positive attitude, good references, and the ability to integrate well with new people. Please let me know if you are interested to learn more about this fabulous boat and her crew!
