My wife Kathy (46) and I (50) are avid sailors preparing for our future voyaging life. We currently sail our Caliber 33, Winston in and around Montreal, crew and charter whenever we can. We've chartered in the BVI, did a stretch on the ICW for a delivery, crewed Antigua sailing week and did an Atlantic crossing with the ARC+ in 2019 and most recently went from the TCI to Freeport Bahamas. If you are looking for two highly competent and motivated crew for a delivery or crossing, look no further. We both speak french and english and are very easy going and sociable. We are great in the galley and I can repair almost anything on a boat. References available upon request. We are also triple vaccinated for COVID. Ma femme et moi sommes passionnés de voile et préparons notre avenir à voyager le monde à voile. Nous voguons notre Caliber 33 dans les eaux près de Montréal, aidons comme équipage et faisons des croisières lorsque possible. En 2019, nous avons fait une transat avec le ARC+. Si vous cherchez deux équipages d'expérience et motivés, faites appel à nous. Nous sommes en excellente forme et santé, parfaitement bilingues (anglais et français), très sociables et habiles dans la cuisine. Je peux aussi réparer presque n'importe quoi sur un voilier. Étant photographe professionnel, d’excellentes photos de voyage sont assurées ! David Boily ([email protected]) : 514 972-7092 Kathy Tremblay ([email protected])
