Question: Can you give me any tips on how to find opportunities to sail from Southern California to Hawaii?
A few years ago, I sailed from the Caribbean to Portugal on a small sailboat. There was just the captain, myself and one other crewman.
But there’s little adventure on board those behemoths, which is OK unless you harbor a fantasy about running away to sea.
Several cruise lines sail from Southern California to the islands (usually stopping at a foreign port to satisfy maritime law).
It is all very civil, if civil means that someone else does all the work, you get to direct your own activities and no one will ever ask you to polish the vessel. Welcome to vessel/crew ‘dating’ services that could make your dreams come true Wine-tasting trips are the toast of the cruise industry.
One recent email from a Crewbay user said, “I am now on a 42-foot sailboat because of your site, and my life is way much better and I’m way happier now.”Another way to get your foot in the door may be offshore racing, said Andy Turpin, managing editor of Latitude 38, a Northern California sailing publication he described as a “regional magazine that has outgrown its regionality.” It too offers avenues to catching on with a crew, but Turpin also suggests that more experienced sailors might be able to find work with racers in the Pacific Cup, from San Francisco to Oahu; the Trans Pacific Yacht Race, from Los Angeles to Oahu; or the Vic-Maui Yacht Race, from Victoria, Canada, to the 727-square-mile isle.
Turpin suggested attending prerace events and displaying an enthusiasm and a willingness to work hard. As with any matchmaking, whether in person or online, and whether it’s romantic love or the romance of the seas, always proceed with caution.
