Offshore sailing - Tips from the Pros... a new Sailing Videos series where professional delivery captains share their sailing tips and tricks for sailing boats across oceans...the things that work for them on an every day basis for decades and decades as they put on more miles in a year than many of us even with bluewater sailboats put on in a decade of bluewater cruising...

Many of them take on crew and teach offshore sailing to experienced sailors who become even more experienced after learning how to cross an ocean with Hank. Over the years these captains get sailing long distance, offshore passages and yacht deliveries down to an exact science, and we all have a lot to learn from them, especially about ocean sailing, and the different sailing maneuvers and sailing tactics to make the miles roll by in any rough seas, heavy weather, stormy weather, and when becalmed. This week, it’s Hank Schmidt from Offshore Passage Opportunities (OPO) passing on some sailing tips and tricks, and quick hacks to make sailing fun and easy for his crew. His small company hails from New York. He runs the North American Rally to the Caribbean (NARC) every year, twice a year from Newport RI, to Bermuda, and then on to St Marten, and then the return passage back north again, among other offshore passages that sailors looking for offshore experience can sign on it. Hank captains SV Avocation in this rally, his own private yacht. Other boats with other professional captains handle other sailboats in the rally...often Swan sailboats, which are fast raceboats, but also seaworthy amazing offshore sailboats ready to cross oceans. Private owners also sail their own boats in this rally with crew supplied by OPO. They always take paying crew with them. Crew are usually experienced boat owners themselves, smart and successful who want to learn from these professionals, how to cross oceans before they take their own families and yachts offshore. Many of these students will sail their own boats full time in a year or two, or sail around the world. . Others learn it’s not the life for them. But everyone enjoys pushing their limits and being thrown in the “deep end” on these passages. Everyone comes out part of Team with memories and friendships to last forever!

Good video Patrick...I learned a little something.....and a good way to keep your videos going - interesting and useful topics during a time when you are in the yard, where video after video of repetitive yard work (to keep the channel active) can quickly lead to clicks and move on! This is a super interesting option - we still get Patrick but you defer to others who you respect to present other unique instruction. Far and away a cut above of some (many) filler videos in which neophyte sailors attempt to instruct on everything from epoxying bulkheads to monos vs cats.....all topics they should steer clear of! Well done, a pro’s view on passage...thanks, Andrew

YeH...I love that line...it was fun how Patrick repeated that scene ;) -Rebecca

I would recommend to tigthen The clew line on the boom
This way the main sail flattens results in higher pointing in the wind
Other suggestion the other lines on the boom that hold the reefed part of the sail make knots that can loosen easily because if for some reason the clew reefline loosens the mainsail might tear up

Patrick Childress Sailing - 4 years ago
I do believe the captain says just what you suggest about tightening the reef/clew line. What sort of knot would automatically loosen under tension but yes, good point about a quick release knot, but I would think that was done.

Love your videos mate you are a true mariner .So many sailchannels on youtube offer nothing except some hot girl who is e begging and offers no insight on how to become a sailor .If anyone asks me what do i need to do to learn about sailing is to pay your channel a visit

Patrick Childress Sailing - 4 years ago
Thank you for your comment, Cameron. There is so much sailing entertainment on YouTube, we thought we would try a different approach. There are crew on these passages from St. Maarten to Rhode Island that do it multiple times to see how different captains will handle a similar situation. I have always wanted to sail with Hank Schmitt, but now I get to but without having to put in all the time.....

This going to be great information.
Well I have now watch the video.
I don’t normally say anything bad but I am sorry this got to me.

I am sorry to say that in my words and as Professional Captain as myself he didn’t do a very good job about telling the new crew what the lines are for what the names of them and which one to let go and WHY. Ok I watch it again and he DID SAY SOME NAMES for the lines but not all, also The Captain Tells you which lines to let go, crew just don’t let lines go .

CCM, The people on these trips are not beginners. They have to know how to sail and qualify to join the boat. This is no place for beginners who do not know the terminology. Many of these people own their own 50 foot boats but join these passages to get offshore experience before taking their own families across an ocean. Thank you very much for making this comment. I just went into the video description and added this same information so other viewers will understand the level at which this boat is operating.
