Hi! Thanks for thinking about joining Grateful.
About a year ago I closed up business and decided to follow my lifelong dream of sailing the world.
Although I’m from California, my family roots are from Greece. So I decided to search the Mediterranean for a boat that could take me and a crew around the world.
Since October 2018, I am now owner and captain of Grateful.
Since then we have sailed nearly 5000 miles of the Mediterranean And so far the crew that has joined has been awesome! In total there have been nearly 40 different crew for trips lasting a day to up to a 2 months. Everyone brings something unique and I am grateful to all of you for your ideas, cooking, music, conversation, innovation and smiling happy faces!!!
We love to experience everything from the historic villages, local foods, making new friends and finding old friends too. Deep and shallow anchorages, and sailing!! We love to have the sails out in all conditions from gentle breezes to fast heavy winds and bigger seas. The Sense 50 is very strong and powerful, yet graceful and elegant in the water. The whole experience is just amazing.
I am looking for crew that can contribute ideas, music, cooking, cleaning, photography, conversation, digital media assistance,etc.
We share expenses. This is an extremely luxury boat. Usually there are 2 to 6 aboard. Figure your contribution at 50 euro per day.
No experience necessary.
Boat is perfect and like new.
