Looking for gay couple to crew catamaran

Looking for a gay younger couple to crew on a new 50+ catamaran being delivered this fall. Boat will be delivered to southern France and additional work done. Then sails in the Mediterranean working bugs out. Then onto the Canary Islands awaiting the jump to the Caribbean. The boat will be making a circumnavigation around the world seasonally. If interested or questions please write.

Cause they prefer it that way. Not to be overbearing but their preference is not of our concern.
Same as if they had said only young or old couples etc.

Yea, but if they’d said heterosexual couple, or white couple, they’d be vilified...

Maybe, that is a Societal issue, not a Forum one. We aren’t going to solve that here, and it doesn’t have to do with cruising, so we are not going to try.
This is the way I look at it, being up front saves me the trouble of applying, cause that is not my cup of tea, but I appreciate the heads up. If we look at it that way, it may not be offensive, it may be appreciated.

I get your point, and agree, but the hypocrisy is embarrassing...

I think the algorithm chose this to post on the morning feed just to kick the hornets next :-)

Ask for whoever you want to crew your boat I say, just don’t complain when someone else does the same.

Impossible to tell. The OP may have received a number of expressions of interest via personal messages.

Re: Looking for gay couple to crew catamaran

If it's paid crew then stating a sexual orientation preference might be illegal depending on the country.

This. It would be illegal in the U.S.
