More information, um, ok ... altho thereís actually a massive qty of info on that blog? But anyways, more info below
This will be the boats 12th transatlantic crossing in 6 years since launch late 2006 and my 11th with this boat
- i bough the boat off the first owner who discoverted he hated it.
Loads of safety gear
: the boat has safety gear somewhat above RORC standards ie defibrillator, AIS
B and C, AIS
personal transponders, and so on.
Itís a cruise
but weíll still push along. I will fly parasailor spinnakers 24/7 so donít come if flying spinnakers at night is a freakout for you. Our max speed will likely touch 20knots, target is 200nm/day, so again, donít come if this isnít your sort of sailing.
Itís not a commercial
venture but itís not a charity either, nor do I really *need* crew, so I charge $15 a day for crew people being on the boat which includes everything except flites to/from the boat and your expenses ashore.
I can answer any queries if you email
me at noteasytoremember which is on the hotmail server, and itís a dot com address.
At some point crew need to answer these questions...
1 What other stuff do you do? tell me bit more about yourself
2 If it was your turn to cook - what would you make for lunch and dinner?
You need a few ideas - we share cooking
3 What's the fastest you've ever been on a sailing boat? We might touch
20knots max, and will want to aim for sailing 10knots as often as possible.
You ok with that? What other slightly speedy/scary sports have you done -
4 Do you smoke? If you plan on smoking or stopping smoking on this trip,
please don't come.
5 I need to know if there is anything medical
or dietary particular
that others might need to know. Allergies to types of food
, medicines you
take, anything. Let me know?
: Crew pay for their travel to and from the boat and share food
costs. We'll all pitch
in with shopping
help, but it's likely that the boat
will be at least partly provisioned by the time new crew arrive. So, crew
contribution is $15 per day whilst living on board, whether in port or at
sea. You pay your costs ashore, and any "special" stuff like your personal
stash of chocolate etc. You pay flites to/from the boat. You don't pay any
boatfixing or marina or fuel
7 We might use some wine for cooking
, perhaps open a bottle of fizz when
crossing the Equator, but otherwise we don't much drink alcohol at sea.
Don't even think of bringing any illegal drugs to the boat.
