I can't find any evidence on the site of there being a charge for joining this couple on their cruise. It is standard practise to make a contribution towards the costs when you crew for others.

Absolutely upfront on everything except for the agreed upon price, but I'm guessing it will be reasonable. I particularly like the contract and may adopt it for my purposes. Fair winds and safe passages Captain.

Looking at the site, I kind of get the impression that they are looking for people who want to crew but pay for the experience....I don't see where they say how much it costs though. I may be wrong.....

Chances are they are being careful not to appear as a charter service which there is no indication of.

Re: Cruising Opportunities 2012 - 2014 Greece & Beyond

Hi, I am a 54 year old divorced woman living in Sydney. I grew up in Hong Kong where i learnt to sail. I now own my second boat, a 46' savage oceanic which I have taken up the east coast of Australia and raced in the Hamilton Island race week.
I love racing and do so every Wednesday on a friends Sydney 36, but my real love is cruising. I prefer the short hops from one anchorage to another (rather than night sailing), am very sociable, and am a member of the coastal crusing club of Australia, amongst others. I have been cook on a catamaran going up north, and have sailed on various boats off the coast of Australia. I can scuba dive, play bridge and cards, like sociable drinking, and am adaptable. My latest trip was on a catamaran with 4 others who all knew each other, (I had never met any of them) but it was an adventure and I like taking myself out of my comfort zone. I had done this previously on a boat coming south from the Whitsundays. I want to travel now whilst I can, and experience new things.I am thinking of possibly going to the Med next year (our winter, your summer).

Its a Charter Service, make no mistake about that-no one runs a ad like this unless there is money to be made !!

Not sure that I understand your logic for determining that our ad is for a charter service, our website clearly spells out that this is a cost sharing opportunity.
