Who’s interested to crew with me delivering a 70ft race boat from Rio de Janeiro to Antigua end of January? I’m going to lock in final crew very quickly as visas needed etc. Message me directly if interested and for more details!
Arrived to San Francisco from Hawaii on this 3rd lap of the pond for the summer! It was a tedious 23-day jaunt with an uncooperative high and a burned out starter motor but still had fun in double-handed format with solo sailor Linda Pasquariello. Ironic that we raced each other solo from San Francisco to Hawaii last year and now we arrive to SF double-handed! Also crazy it was my 5th Hawaii-Cali run since last summer…I have a few great pics from en-route and the most spectacular sunset under the Golden Gate I’ll post shortly! PS: A possible 4th HI-Cali run, who’s keen to crew? 😉
3rd Summer yacht delivery and my 40th trans-Pacific this time double-handed with solo sailor Linda P (her 11th time with me on this route alone 😉 – aboard a Robert Perry designed ‘Fair-weather 39’ Hawaii to San Diego 😉 Possibly a 4th Hawaii-Cali run after this!

BELOW SOME PICS OF PREVIOUS ADVENTURES TOGETHER OVER THE YEARS ; )
This going to be fun, moved the Andrews 70 “Runaway” KYC to WYC yesterday to prep for delivery 😉 11-15 knots boat speed under No #4 jib alone with breeze from Tropical Storm Darby – picking up delivery main from shipping company tomorrow. Is my 11-day record going north threatened? Yes indeed…My smile says it all_______/)
Life Begins @ 40! Another two or three trans-Pacific Hawaii to the US West Coast return yacht deliveries coming up as the summer rolls on…A 70ft all carbon Alan Andrews 70, then a cruising boat and a 4th possible…
The 3rd after the race boat will be my 40th trans-Pacific at age-40 😉 Or 100,000-nautical miles on this route alone = 4 X around the world…Man, I should pick up a new ‘hobby’. Where do all the miles and time go ?! Hopefully I’m just getting warmed up for the ‘neXt’ – some big plans on the not distant horizon ____________/)
