Hey guys n gals, I'm looking for crew with or without experience to help me get my junk-rigged schooner, Chineel, back to Europe
for some fitting out and supplies. Currently I have one friend joining me, and am looking for 2 more (couples welcome).
We sail at the end of this month! If you intend to fly from the US, I suggest getting a 3 weeks return to Faro, and catching a one-way budget
airline from there to the Canaries
- cheaper than flying direct or buying
two one-way tickets.
There is no autopilot
, hence my need for crew. Instruction will be given, and you are welcome to wake me up if you are need help while alone on a night shift -- expect swearing in such a case, but you should take no offence :P
Power generation is currently limited to her well-maintained onboard diesel
, which I intend to run for no more than a couple of hours a day, so crew power consumption
will be limited to charging
phones, mp3 players and ebook readers.
If we have a full compliment of crew (4), shifts will be two 3 hour shifts a day, rotating for all crew, including myself. I will be cooking
most of the main meals
, but preparation of other meals
will be done on a rota basis (menu is planned, and instructions given if required).
The stop in Maderia will be for a day or so, depending on how quickly we make the passage
, anchorage there is 25 a day, so about 6 each.
Other costs include - 60 for two weeks provisions, and 30 towards fuel
, per person.
You are welcome to stay aboard for up to an additional week either before or after we reach our destination
Excepted sailing time - 7-10 days.
I rarely check here, so please check out her FB page at - https://www.facebook.com/ChineelSailing/
and message the page for further details.
Smoking is allowed onboard, but no alcohol while under sail.
