Experienced racer/ cruiser/ delivery skipper seeks boat to deliver home from Pacific Cup. I have done the crossing between Hawaii and the main land 17 times and have over 100,000 miles at sea. I have completed 6 races to Hawaii (3 Transpac, 2 SH Transpac, 1 Pacific Cup) plus two cruises to Hawaii and 9 return deliveries. I have returned on boats from a little 30-footer all the way up to the supermaxi Rio 100.
I have skippered a Santa Cruz 52 (2019 TP return), Archambault 35 (2018 Pac Cup return), crew on Rio 100 (2018 return from '17 TP), skipper of Rodgers 46 (2017 and 2015 TP return), crew on R/P 45 (2011 and 2013 return), skipper of Island Packet 380 (2012 SH Transpac return), skipper of Mount Gay 30 (2010 SH Transpac return).
I am physically fit, a hard worker, responsible, calm under pressure (Iraq combat veteran), highly experienced and will work for reasonable rates. I have several references and a full CV available upon request. I am easy to get along with and a good small-unit leader. I am the media manager for the 2020 (and 2018) Pacific Cup race, and will be at the start and the finish. I am only available for a paid skipper or crew position, otherwise I have to return home to my business in Fiji.
