pirate Re: Ireland to Canaries

Delivery Skipper looking for extras maybe...
there's quite a few folk keen to break into a percieved 'Cushy Number'.. so they go dirt cheap and take on paying crew to cover the trip...
I'm cheap... but I make sure my crew don't have to pay anything to or from the boat... or on board... all expense's are down to the owner including marina's etc if needed for shelter/repairs...
If it comes down to it the owner either lets me solo it.. or supplys his own crew...
Or hires someone else...
Regarding the Cork to Canaries trip... did a similar run in a 35ftr last year... just I turned left at San Vincente for E.Spain instead of carrying on... it was blowy from Baiona down 3-5metre sea's... the Biscay was a millpond..
But then I've been there in 8+metre sea's.... the Biscay always surprise's... and it also ignore weather predictions... 5 day windows can close in 24hrs....
There's folk who'll happily pay for the mileage... but then they think thats there only hope... lotta wannabe's for limited spaces... maybe 500-1..
