I am planning the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean
till Fort-de-France, Martinique
. Iīd love to continue from Martinique
to San Blas, Panama
and finally back by the Azores
So far, I have done a lot of sailing single
hand, but would feel better with company to share the trip.
I am male, 63 years old and am sailing since the early 70īs. For long years I have crewed on offshore
boats and finally then I bought my own yacht. The actual one is my number 3 and its an Albin Vega
27, which I bought very good cared and am taking care of this boat
. Vegas have the reputation to be one of the best boats built, but arenīt very comfortable. They are smaller (27-foot) and the height is not the tallest. But, they have best reputation for strong sea sailing.
I donīt know if the trip will undergo, because San Blas is closed since March and it may probably they will never open up to the date I want to travel. Nevertheless, Iīd like to prepare just-in-case...
I am used to singlehanded, but am also used to people. I do have problems with people, when they are neurotic or picky. I donīt like to criticize and at some point, when the other person is a "I-know-it-all" type, I get tired. So, wouldnīt like such a person. I love the nature, some music
, to sit on deck
and enjoy sunrise, sunsets, even a storm I enjoy. The best is when it rains, to take a good shower
of sweet water
Is there somebody out there, who has interest in such a trip?
