Cruise Azores to France. NOT a 'delivery'!

I am looking for 1 or 2 people to crew with me o. My own boat from Azores to France, Brest area, from about Tuesday 20th June.

You don't need to be some sailing expert just someone with a brain that works.

Preferably female as men are ugly.

You are required to pay your own airfares to Azores and back home from wherever we make landfall. Plus your share of food. (that way I don't fork out for your caviar fetish)

My crew from this current passage is running out of time and we were delayed a week avoiding a storm so they need to go.

I would normally sail so but with the TVS and traffic in the area really wants someone glued to the AIS.

I am also chicken-sh&# and avoid storms even if it means I divert for a week...

My style of sailing is pretty relaxed with more than 40,000 nms on this boat.
In the last 12 months this boat has been fully re-rigged, new Genoa and new maintain, new running rigging, new dodger & bimini.

In the passage from the Caribbean we had no breakages, no problems, no hassles.
Thats the way I do it, I like it, and I demand it.

So if you can put work for a few weeks and come for a adventure PM me now, or email forums at ourlifeatsea dot com

PS we have satellite weather etc

You won't die!

Sounds fun, but I will only go if you teach me how to use a sextant. Will you teach me how to use one?

To scandalize Shaw: "Two people separated by a common language.."

There may be something lost in the English usage (American vs. Aussie)…or homonyms…

Make sure your crew is not asking for lessons on using a "sex tent"

Mark,

Enjoyed your humorous post, as usual.

I wish I could join you, but I am booked on another boat.

Bon Voyage!
