Long term cruising companion
I am offering a crew / friendship position for a suitable female companion Interested in long term cruising and wishing to share in the experiences of exploring new and remote destinations around the world.
Some sailing experience would be advantageous and a minimum of crew certification would be required before departure.
If you have a passion for being on the ocean and sailing, without the initial outlay of purchasing a yacht, then please read on.
My yacht is currently located in Greece (Dodecanese) and currently living in Australia.
2021 Feb to April I hope to complete internal refit and electronics upgrade. This will be subject to any COVID restrictions at this time
August to October I will return and finish any remaining work, launching for a month or two of shake down sailing around the Dodecanese.
2022. Starting in late March, I will spend 3 months sailing in Greece before heading to Turkey for a further 3 months, after which I will return to Greece for a few months, before wintering the yacht..
2022. I will spend 6+ months sailing to Spain where I will leave the yacht over winter to have some Stainless work manufactured in preparation for my Atlantic crossing.
2023. Will be more sailing in the Med before crossing the Atlantic later in the year.
My current plan is to sail the Caribbean followed by the Pacific. The planned end destination is South East Asia. I have no fixed time frame and I am open to other destinations.
Expenses will be on a share basis and It is my intention to make use of anchorages over marinas, unless necessary. I will be sailing on a fixed budget and am working on a few plans which may provide additional funds to help with cruising costs.
I am in the process of fitting out the yacht with all new safety equipment required for offshore cruising along with adding equipment which will allow the vessel to be as self sufficient as possible (solar, water maker & generator etc).
I am easy going, very organised and safety is always of the highest priority.
If this sounds like something you may be interested in, feel free to send me a message and I will happily share further information about my plans, the yacht and myself.
I am not looking for a relationship, just a friend/travel companion.
