Offering Sailng Vacation between Mediterranean and Northern Europe

We are a crew of 2 Italian skippers retired that would like to host a northern crew (max 4 ) on a 12,50 sloop around Mediterranean in exchange for similar offer on a northern sailing boat in Irish Sea or English Channel or Norway, Sweden ecc.

Please contact us by PM.

Re: offering sailng vacation between Mediterranean and North Europe.

Would a 12 m cruising yacht in the Florida Keys do?

Re: offering sailng vacation between Mediterranean and North Europe.

What a great idea - cruising exchanges!! Anyone want to come cruising in Kuwait, in return for cruising anywhere else in the world (between the two tropics, tho)?

I'm glad you like it - a visit to Lebanon is certainly on the cards... But would you want to visit Kuwait...?

OK. First of all, sorry for my English. My idea is only private opportunity not a business. Example: do you like to sail in Italy, Greece, Turkey ( this summer from Maj till the end of September we will sail in this area).If you like, you or your friends will be our guest and I or my friends will be your guest in a differ ent period, in your country maybe winter is ok. I think this can be an opportunity not expensive, but the most important thing is to meet new sailors, different cultures ecc.ecc.. I would like to sail in Kuwait.
Please I ask you to be free to judge my idea.
Thanks and best regards
Fabrizio Floriano

If you didn't keep aplogoising for your English, we probably wouldn't even notice! Your English is good.

Cool - check out my blog www.saucysailoress.wordpress.com (from categories, select sailing, or you'll have a lot of academic stuff to plough through) - and if you like what you see, I'll speak to my husband about a mediterranean cruise! You, of course are welcome here any time... but spring and autumn are the most pleasant times... too cold in winter!

Re: offering sailng vacation between Mediterranean and North Europe.

I'm with Saucy, your English is fine, and the idea for private exchange is great!

The idea, while simple allows someone with little or no local knowledge enjoy the benefits of cruising a different area, and in this case country/region of the world.

Outstanding! Oh, and welcome to the forum!

No plans to go to Kuwait as of yet....but you're still welcome to come sailing with us in Leb....I may be looking for some crew for a trip to Turkey (on the nose) around Ramadan?

I asked my husband, and he said "sounds cool". He's a man of not so many words - that means he thinks I'm awesome for being able to set this up!!

So thanks - it's a date! As I said, this SPring no good for us - too many trips already planned. But Autumn, great. Perhaps I could even fly straight from Turkey...

Re: Offering Sailng Vacation Between Mediterranean and Northern Europe.

Just thought I'd let you know - I just booked tickets to Athens next month, where we plan to join Fabrizio in the Cyclaedes Islands for 8 days sailing. It looks like it will be interesting just getting down there from Athens, since flights look pricey and not too regular!

This is such a fantastic opportunity, and he sounds like a very nice guy; so I have my fingers crossed!!! And it should be fun having a visiting crew back in Kuwait in the Autumn.

James- I'm still up for the Ramadan thing, don't forget! I want to check out your newly finished steps.
