Re: Amsterdam to Inverness

Hello 'Blue', Piqued my interest (I'm surprised I don't see more replies). Will PM shortly with CV & more questions. It's a plus that you've sailed the North Sea before and know these waters (I don't). I know that at the wrong time of year, the North Sea can be "interesting" (I was on the Ostend ferry in a force 5 w/ 10M seas, one November several years ago). I'm assuming a bit more calm than that.
I've no problem with air & travel exp on my own (using frequent flyer miles before they expire). So you'd expect five days, so then watches 4 hrs on & 4 off? (I'll bring coffee). My only challenge is schedule, breaking free from my "day job" that soon (the pain of not being rich - LOL).
But I've got people back on land who count on me ...
So tell my [ex]wife I am trawling Atlantis
