East Groenland Coast Exploration Sailing – Kangerdlussuak Area
The Green Land, as described by the Icelandic Vikings who reached the SW Coast around 1000 AC, is only fertile in this area.
The East Coast we will explore is instead mostly covered by Ice, and the Icecap and its Glaciers reach the shore in between huge and deep fjords.
The pack ice allows the ships to reach the shore only few months per year, making this part of the country one of the most remote area of the planet.
In July, we will leave Isafjordur and check if the drifting pack ice has cleared the way to the Blosseville coast, only 200 Nm away from Iceland.
If not, we will spend few days exploring the Vestfirdir area, and the Hornstrandir Peninsula, under the clear arctic summer and its permanent daylight.
In August, the days will be shortened by some night, but the pack and the fasten ice will have well moved away and it will be easier to sail into the fjords.
Leaving from Ammassalik, we will stay three weeks deepening our knowledge of the area, exploring furthermore the hidden gems of the fjords, going north as far as we can.
Then we will return to Reykjavik, leaving this iced and pure universe to its original condition.
We will live two to three weeks in complete autonomy, enjoying the fabulous lanscapes, the drifting icebergs, surrounded by whales, seals.
We will use our dingies to reach the shore, the more experienced will take the folding kayaks to approach smoothly the animals, and sail towards another fjord, leaving the iced peaks of the coast behing us in a goldy mirage.
This is a place of total wilderness, kingdom of walruses, polar bear and many species or marine mammals, feeding into the rich waters, before the long winter.
There are no harbours, no roads, no villages, and we will experience the intimate feeling of being “into the wild”.

Oyster UK to Med
Sailing an Oyster 61 from the UK to the Med, departing 7 July 2018. Legs something like: Tyne to Southampton; Brest; La Corunna; Porto; Villamoura; Benalmadena; Almerimar; etc.
Flexible joining and departing, as you like. Likely stops are going to be close to Easyjet airports to make it easy to come and go.
The boat is well found and comfortable. The cruise would be a good way to pick up experience and miles. Plus the sun will shine!
Am planning to sail down to The Scillies and back from Poole in August 2018, probably leaving on 8 August. May also go from Scillies to France if time and weather permit. Have 1 crew coming and room for 1 more. My boat is a Westerly Storm 33. Seaworthy and quite quick. Message me for more information.
New England sailing
Looking to connect with more New England sailors. I sail out of Winthrop and could take out small groups.
I co-own a boat in the Aegean – she is a Hanse 350 – a few years old now, but still quick and easy to sail. I have a 2-week slot Sunday 1st July to 15th July. I am offering the opportunity to sail the magical islands of Greece for no cost (other than your own expenses). If you have time free for a super-cruise from Zea marina (near Pireaus/Athens) where the handover will take place to Aegina, Hydra and possibly beyond, please let me know.
Sea of Cortez Late July 2018
I am a 59-year-old retired American attorney. Thirty years ago I sailed from Texas to Florida and into the Bahamas. I swore I would once again liveaboard. It has taken a while but now I am in Mazatlan Mexico the proud owner of a 2007 Hunter 38. It will go into the yard soon to install A/C, bow thruster and a generator.
By the end of July I hope to untie the lines and head for La Paz and the islands off the west coast of Baja – truly incredibly beautiful.
I am in search of a lady, a bloke or a couple to share the journey for a bit or more. Who know whats next the Panama Canal and the Caribbean may beckon.
Sailing experience a definite plus but a willing attitude and easy demeanour are equally if not more essential. Not looking for financial assistance or a sharing of vessel costs.

Off to Vanuatu
The South Pacific Cruising Season is finally here. I’m leaving Sydney for New Caledonia in my 48ft cat, first weather window in May. Have crew for the passage but none from the start of June. This looks to be the spot to put up a request to see who that is out there, who would enhance my journey by having them on-board as crew.
I fell in love with Vanuatu last season, so that will be where I will be spending most of this season, in the remote islands. The villages have no TV, internet, smartphones and minimal phone reception, we are their reality TV. Vanuatu was labelled the friendliest place in the world a few years ago, for good reason.
If a weather window of westerlies or southerlies presents itself, I’ll take the boat back to Fiji, to catch up with all the great people I met there last year. If it doesn’t, I won’t. Where too after November is still evolving, in my head. Micronesia and Palau are to the north, but a number of people have been raving about Fiordland on the west coast of the southern main Island of New Zealand.
I have worked out the hard way that it is a rare couple that can maintain a relationship while cruising, so I’m not looking for a relationship, but rather a good friendship that develops over time. The boat is big enough to maintain your and my privacy. The logistics of getting crew on-board for short periods of time is difficult. I end up getting stuck in marinas for a week or two, because I cannot assume there will be a favourable weather window, just prior to you coming or going. So the minimum time is 6weeks. I have found the boat works best with a female crew. If there are rain squalls about I need to be focused on managing the boat, and it is lovely to have someone else, focused on the galley at those times. I love provisioning in the local markets and cooking too much, to delegate all of those tasks. The person I am looking for, after reading the above would be saying to themselves, this a dream opportunity, how do I make this happen, not can I fit this in around my vacation leave. It has taken me years of working and planning to get to this point, now it is time to continue the enjoyment of the journey.
Sailing the Turkish coast from Marmaris
From NW of Scotland to the South
My boat is in Oban and my intention is to left the marina around 9th May
I wish to sail to Castel bay with 2-3 stops after which I will heading to the south.
I will sail in legs, first one I wish to finish in Dublin around 20th May.
The end of the passage will be in the Canaries.
My boat is an old lady, Hallberg Rassy 35 very well equipped for a long passage, I crossed the Atlantic twice.
She could accommodate four but I prefer, for comfort matter, to be two or three on board.

Planning a shakedown sail from the Netherlands to the Baltic and back calling along the way to anywhere that takes the fancy with an overall time schedule of 6 – 10 weeks starting late March-early April. The boat is a Fisher 46 heated and with the Wheelhouse it should be warm a cosy whilst looking at amazing places. I have found an experienced Baltic captain and I am there as Skipper owner seeking a pair of good hands.
