Quintessence - looking for crew for my annual trek to the schooner race!

I am looking for crew for my annual trek from NJ down to the Chesapeake in October. I have a few people lined up, but could use one or two more.

First leg is Toms River to Philadelphia Independence Seaport Museum. it will take three days leaving Friday, September 30th. We will overnight at Cape May and Delware City, DE along the way. The boat will stay in Philly for the week. The following weekend is the Wooden/Traditional Boat Fest at the museum.

Next leg is Philly to Baltimore. Leave Monday, Oct 10, stop in Chesapeake City, MD then in Baltimore on Tuesday. Pretty easy run.

I am set for crew for the race itself.

Final leg is a non-stop run back to Tom's River from Portsmouth, VA. Essentially run 24/7 up the Chesapeake Bay, through the C&D canal, down Delaware Bay, through Cape May, then up Jersey to Tom's River. We will be standing four hour watches night and day. We leave Portsmouth mid-morning, Sunday, Oct 16th and should be in Tom's River by Thursday (unless bad weather sets in).

Drop me an email at ptgray@comcast.net if you are interested.
