Looking for crew for a 2013 Jeanneau
57 currently in Lanzarote and waiting here till November to head
towards Trinidad. This will be my 12th transatlantic, though my first on this boat
. I'mm 55 going on 23, retired brit, sailing variously in Med and carib.
I'm owner/skipper, and the way this has worked nicely in the past is for crew to get themselves to and from the boat
at their expense, and we share food
costs, likely about 100-150 dollars a week for the (surely max) three week gig.
Two is tight and a bit exhausting altho serene .... but three is ok and a cabin
each. We'll likely make kinda hand-held food
for the most part, and probably three hour watches. On the cat the boat steered itself but with a mono I anticipate a lot more handsteering cos it's more fun and the carbon wheels are very tactile :-)
No couples please cos the dynamic is too weird in a small crew, no hopelessly unfit older wannabees or never-been-on-a-boat romantic types, or scaredy types who have never sailed at night or offshore
or with a spinnaker
or at double digit speeds or all these. Anyway there's nothing to worry about - only 2miles from land throughout the trip - straight down :-)
Hope I haven't frightened away everyone tho :-) Should be good fun! Email
