Hi. I am seeking crew/Sailing companions on a voyage from Kristiansand to the Mediterranean
starting mid June 2013.
The "Midnight Swan" is and old lady built in Finland
1981 and have recently been on a 13 month cruise
to the Caribbean
. It got the latest electronic navigation
gadgets including Radar
raft for 8 persons. Satellite
telephone are available when we are outside reach of VHF
and mobile networks.
The old lady is not a luxury yacht, its a cruising/racing yacht with 8 bunks and 3 cabins including the saloon
. Comfort zone is no more than 4 persons offshore
and onshore. Even with as few as 4 persons onboard one have to be quite social and do the share of work
without moaning (to much).
Having said that, the following shall apply if you want to join:
1. Valid passport and travel assurance.
2. Sailing gear
or oilskins and wallis (Rubber boots) you can borrow some but that will be one size fit all.
3. Remember the Atlantic can be quite cold and you will need some warm clothing
4. Its a low budget cruise
and you have to accept to share all running expenses such as food
, harbor expenses, etc. In addition:
5. For short stays, until 14 days, I will charge USD 10 a day and longer stays USD 5 a day. This to cover insurance
and wear and tear on the boat
6. Travel to and from the port for joining at ones own cost
