Hi - I might be interested.
I have a Hinckley 50 yawl in Maine
but wasn't going to launch her until mid July. And I have a classic
schooner in Palma, Mallorca which for the moment is not useable as I'm having the entire electrical system
totally rewired and God knows how long that'll take. I'm a retired neurosurgeon and have owned and sailed boats for 46 years. Now I sail mostly single-handed (my wife gets seasick and the only people who want to go sailing with me are usually women - which my wife absolutely nixes). I have never done a trans-Atlantic (been to Bermuda
and the Virgins a few times - from New England
We have a home in Bath, UK and I'm sure that helping with provisions would be cheaper than a plane ticket to the UK. From there EasyJet to Mallorca so I can kick-ass and get my electrician moving and finish the job on my schooner.
I'll attach some links for pics/movie if this site can handle it.
