Offshore Passage Opportunities


Hank Schmitt Catching Dinner


Offshore Passage Opportunities ("OPO") is the # 1 Crew Networking Organization offering free crew to boat owners and skippers who are looking for crew.  The crew sail for free and pay their own way to and from the boat.  By special arrangement with our rally, OPO is offering their services for free to all participants. Free crew and Free Service.  Last year, Hank and his team helped two rally participants find crew on incredibly short notice for the return trip home, and he even helped another sailor docked next to our group in Bermuda find crew for her trip back to Rhode Island.

Founded by Hank Schmitt in1993, over 2000 people have joined OPO with over 600 active experienced sailors ready to assist you in your passage.  Hank has been a delivery skipper for over 20 years and has made the passage to or from Bermuda over 30 times as well as sailing over 250,000 miles.  OPO organizes the Annual NARC Rally from Newport to the Caribbean each fall and Hank is sailing his Swan 48 to Europe this summer to participate in the Swan Worlds in Sardinia Italy.  To learn more about the service, the Offshore Sailing Program and tips about sailing offshore and outfitting your own boat for offshore, visit OPO's web site at or Call 1-800-4-PASSAGe (1-800-472-7724).
