Attention Rapanui! or FP Athena owners

We have been posting threads trying to get more sailing experience alongside catamarans. Alas the response from the Cruiser Forum has been disappointing! Hence this direct appeal. I deduce from reading various posts that you are owner /sailors of an FP Athena! If this is not so please disregard this post.
However, If this is true can a ask some questions of you?

We are a professional couple who are three and half years into our five year plan to sell up and sail off eventually to the Med.!
He: Has ICC, thousands of seamiles, hundreds of night hours, plenty of skippering experience good sailor/navigator/cook. Good sense of humour and fits in with anyone.
She:has some monohull experience. RYA Competent Crew taken an passed summer 2014. Again, good sense of humour and fits in/very practical. Just started sailing and will be doing RYA Dayskipper theory in Winter 2015.

We have sailed with catamaran charter/RYA sea school in 2014 and in 2015 plan to sail again twice with a couple we have become friendly with, who run a catamaran charter business. This is aboard a Broadblue 435 (not our target cat!), this will be limited to a weekend July 2015 and another ten days in August 2015.
In 2016 we would love to spend at least two weeks in 2016 alongside a cruising people who are long term cruisers or better still live aboards! Later in same year we plan to bareboat charter with friends a Catamaran in either Greece or Croatia
I would ask if you would consider in late spring 2016 hosting us for two weeks wherever you are? We could negotiate a budget contribution for our food and berthing costs and also picking your brains as far as your methods of catamaran cruising/liveaboard .
Regards Chris & Catharine
