Offshore Passage Opportunities is the #1 Crew Networking Service in North America. OPO has helped thousands of sailors meet and make successful passages since 1993.
Hurricane season has opened with a ferocious bite. Our friends at Offshore Passage Opportunities are receiving request for crew to help sail relief supplies from Florida to the BVI and then return with a slightly damaged boat for repair. Here's what their up to at the Newport International Boat Show and beyond.
The Caribbean Destruction.
At the Newport Boat Show and on the website they are starting a new free crew list to help supply crew for relief efforts. Also at the show they will be promoting their “Caribbean Mooring Field Development Foundation”. Stop by their booth at the Newport International Boat Show Tent A- Booth 25
"Delivery skippers and private boat owners quickly realize their friends and family have jobs and obligations and can not sail with them. So they call us looking for crew. We collect their information and pass it on to our members to help them get aboard. Since you are helping to deliver a boat, you get to go sailing for free. Many are repeat skippers or members so we pre-qualify a majority of the opportunities for you."
