Fancy the Wild Atlantic Way?
David_of_Fern would like some company on his Falmouth Pilot this Spring/Summer “Hiya! I’m looking to *slowly* sail the Wild Atlantic Way off the west coast of Ireland in Spring/Summer 2019. My little boat is a classic Falmouth Pilot and I usually travel alone, but I’m open to somebody joining me this year. Currently based less than an hour from Cork airport. Novice or experienced welcome. I like to anchor a lot and explore each place along the way, with occasional long stints at sea to make the next port. If this sounds like the kind of thing you’re interested in, then please do let me know”.
Montenegro to UK
IndigoBlue has been helping with dolphin research with his Discovery 55 for a few years now. He is returning to the UK and has some spaces for crew. “Crewing opportunity. Montenegro to UK (approx 2,500 to 3,000 nm) Chance Discovery (a Discovery 55) will be departing Montenegro at the beginning of September en route to the UK via, Sicily, the Volcanic Aeolian Islands, across the Tyrrhenian Sea to Sardinia and North to Corsica to explore the Pelagos Marine Sanctuary. Thereafter heading West to the Balearics, Gibralter and then north to cross Biscay to arrive Lymington in late October. Many opportunities along the route to see and learn about the diverse whale and dolphin populations and the threats to their lives and the ocean environment in general. We will have an MSc qualified marine biologist / guide on board at all times. We have a master stateroom with en-suite. There is also a forward double and twin bunk Pullman cabin that share the second heads /shower with the sea berth. The two month journey will be split into 7 x one week legs. Some with shorter one day hops and some with longer non stop multiple day passages. Participants joining as crew will be expected to contribute towards the cost of the trip. Some previous sailing experience is required and for some longer legs you will be required to stand watches. A great opportunity to sail an ocean going yacht and add to your skills and experience. If you are interested in crewing please contact me for further details.”
