Long Term Cruising Starting in the Med
Thanks to everyone who have responded to my request for crew. Unfortunately Due to some new maintenance issues found during my recent 5 week visit to clean the yacht, my plans for sailing this year have been postponed until April 2020. I will be returning to the yacht in August-September to rectify these issues (new toilets, water heater and electrical issues etc.)
I purchased my new (to me) yacht in September 2018 and it is currently located in Leros, Greece.
My plan is to spend the first 2-3 months (April-May) in 2020 sailing locally around the Dodecanese islands, while I get familiar with the yacht and perform any other maintenance issues that may arise during daily shake down sails.
Interested crew are welcome to join me onboard for any length of time to see how well we work together.
I am hoping to move aboard full time in 2021. Once this happens I will be sailing to non EU countries in the Med every 3 months to meet my 90 day visa requirements.
My future plans include sailing to the Caribbean, Pacific and Indo-China. I have no fixed timeframe and other than a handful of places I would like to visit, I am open to other destinations.
I am seeking a compatible and preferably long term crew member who may be interested in being part of this journey or larger sections of it. I am also looking for short term crew.
Onboard costs will be shared.
I will be sailing on a budget but also want to explore the destinations I visit. I am physically fit (even though it may not look it :)) and can walk, hike and ride a bike all day long.
My preference is to anchor rather than spending the money in Marinas, although I do realise there will be times that it will be necessary.
I am not the best cook, but in time I hope to become more proficient with the help of the internet and YouTube :).
I am easy going and a bit of an introvert. I plan and research most things I do.
I am not looking for romance but just the company and friendship of another person and preferably a lady who is age appropriate.
If this sounds like something you may be interested in then please send me a message and I will be happy discuss further.
I look forward to hopefully meeting all who I have been in contact with and others.
