Hello all, I am looking to soon give up the land for a life at sea and sailing the world for the foreseeable. I've sailed all my life, I used to skipper
professionally in various spots around the world, am Oceanmaster qualified, alas i gave it all up for a career on the shore and a few weeks sailing a year. I have now come to my senses however and am selling up, I plan to buy a decent bluewater yacht and for my girlfriend and I to spend the next few years sailing around the world on. Before we do so however I would like to charter
a yacht for a month of three in order to 110% be sure that we want to commit ourselves to living on the drink for the next few years.
So, I am looking to charter
ideally in the 45-60ft range, monohull
and would like to take the yacht in either the Caribbean
or preferably in SE asia
or the Pacific Island area. Looking for a 4 - 12 week charter period starting between December '14 and January '15. Does anyone have a yacht they'd be prepared to charter to an experienced yachtsman for some light cruising and mini passage
making whilst looking after it as his own, in exchange for a fair fee? If so I would love to hear from you.
p.s. have spend a good few months with great interest noseying at the various forums
on this site, what a great resource and what a helpful bunch of folks, look forward to becoming a part of the crowd soon
Thanks in advance.
