Retired mariner and enjoying the healthy cruising lifestyle, meeting people from all walks of life, swimming and spearing dinner, water skiing, paddle boarding, fishing and generally exploring new places, meeting other cruisers and anchoring in secluded and isolated bays with good weather protection. All good fun however some company to talk to and experience the passage with would be far more enjoyable. A companion of mutual respect.
Cruising and food costs probably come in around $20/day. Obviously depends alot on personal drinking habits, desire for dinner ashore, etc.
Spirit is a very easy and comfortable vessel to operate so previous sailing/cruising experience not required. to take on any operational activities and/or desire to learn would be up to the individual.
So far as itinerary, will depart out of Ft Lauderdale, Florida on or about the end of November and cruise the Bahamas. No fixed sailing schedule in place as i have no commitments until March.
