Watch: S/Y MARE NOSTRUM

ISLAND HOPPING IN GREECE AND LOOKING FOR CREW FOR A CIRCUMNAVIGATION

I am looking for one or two crew members to hop the Greek islands and maybe further from July 2020.

This is an attempt for finding interesting and capable crew to sail around the world next year. Of course the crew for the circumnavigation has the choice to join me for one or more legs or for the hole trip.

I am a certified meteorologist and an experienced boat owner/skipper/mechanic/electrician/sailing instructor with more than 20 years of experience and have sailed in various oceans and places of the globe.

When I sail in the Mediterranean I don't need help and night watches. I can do everything all alone in almost all conditions. Of course, later, for ocean sailing I will need crew capable to stand alone on their watch when I will be resting.

I need motivated people who will be good sailing buddies for good sailing company. I want to share the day and exchange our stories, experiences, skills, tricks, cooking recipes, technical knowledge and excitement for the sea. I want to teach and I want to be taught.

Υour contribution for this year in Greece will be 20 Euros per day which includes everything but groceries and food and drinks out of the boat. For ocean sailing later it will be different...

You can come for 5 days trial period and for longer we will see how we get along...

You must be a non smoker.

I have a cat on board.

If you are a man:
You must have experience in sailing. Any extra knowledge, skills or education such as technical, cooking, music, etc will be appreciated.

If you are a lady:
Any level and any kind of sailing knowledge or experience and willing to participate and learn about sailing. Of course any other skills of all kind will be appreciated.

Great journey with captain Stamatis

5

My experience of traveling with Stam turned out to be surprisingly pleasant, comfortable and informative. We spent 3 weeks traveling in the Cyclades islands. Stamatis is a friendly, intelligent and educated man. In addition, he is a real gentleman and has a great sense of humor. He has an unusually rich experience in yachting and "golden hands", so he independently repairs the boat, manages sails, thinks over the route and navigation depending on the weather. The yacht is equipped at a high level, there is all stuff for a comfortable life and safe sailing. If you are interested in sailing, then you will undoubtedly gain a lot of useful information in communicating with Stamatis. His advices and experience were extremely informative for me. In addition, we talked a lot on other diverse topics and found a lot in common in our thoughts and mentality. Also on board there is a beautiful lady - the cat Nuri. She is very affectionate, friendly and has a good character. And during the trip, there was always musical accompaniment with a selection of classical music, rock and jazz. I think I was incredibly lucky to meet Stamatis and join him in this travelling.

Captain Stam and The Mare Nostrum

5

Captain Stam has basically customized his vessel from stem to stern, and it is the most well equipped cruising vessel I’ve ever been aboard. Also, he’s the most knowledgeable captain I’ve met, with over 20 years of experience sailing, not to mention that he is also a meteorologist and retired Air Force Major. He is knowledgeable about a considerable amount of history and Greek Culture, which he enjoys sharing. If this wasn’t enough, he is courteous, good-humored and a pleasure to be around. (His cat Nuri is incredibly sweet as well!) Any crew who comes about The Mare Nostrum is very fortunate and indeed in very good hands. Thanks Captain, we’ll never forget our journey! -Joyce and Joseph
