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 not 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 awhile 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 Caribbean may beckon.
Sailing experience a definite plus but a willing attitude and easy demeanor 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, smart phones and minimal phone reception, we are their reality TV. Vanuatu was labelled the friendlies 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 is too 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 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 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 south.
I will sail in legs, first one I wish to finish in Dublin around 20th May.
The end of passage will be in Canaries.
My boat is an old lady, Hallberg Rassy 35 very well equipped for 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 cozy 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.
