Watch: Sailing grateful
Greece to Portugal this summer and fall
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 2000 miles in Aegean. And so far the crew that has joined has been awesome. Thanks to all of you!
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, and anything else positive.
We share expenses. This is an extremely luxury boat. Usually there are 2 to 6 aboard. Figure your contribution at 50 euro per day. This is not a hard and fast figure. So let’s talk about it if need be.
I have planned to take up to 10 years to sail the oceans of the world, so there will be many opportunities.
Lastly: as I continue this journey it would be wonderful to work this boat as a traveling Kiteboarder/diving platform. I am open to marketing and bringing on paying customers. Operated properly, the right partner would most likely have a positive income.
No experience necessary.
Boat is perfect and like new.
