Sailing Opportunites June 2018

Here are a few of the sailing opportunities for June 2018 that some of the members have posted on the Lovesail site.  Log into your account for more details.  If you are not a member of Lovesail then please come and have a look, we have full memberships starting at £22/$30 per month and Lifetime membership for £52/$70 (one-off payment), not many dating sites offer this.  We don’t connect to other dating sites so you are guaranteed a global database of thousands of sailing enthusiasts.

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!

Scillies Cruise

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.

Aegean, Greece

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

Planning to arrive Marmaris around 21st May, get my boat (41ft Beneteau Oceanis) rigged and then enjoy around 2 weeks sailing along the Turkish coast. Very easy sailing with frequent stops for swimming, sight-seeing, meals ashore etc. Anyone want to join me?

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.

Crewing Posts for May 2017

Here are just some of the Crewing Posts for May 2017 from the Lovesail members.  If you are interested in any of the posts then just log onto your Lovesail account and view the Crewing Section.  If you do not have a Lovesail account yet then here are some of the testimonials to tempt you.

Bora Bora, Fatu Hiva

If the very sounds of French Polynesia make your timbers shiver, consider the prospect of a part share in a SoPac boat – something fairly cheap and very cheerful. I’m looking at 36-40′ boats around Tahiti for £35-60K online with a view to heading out towards the Autumn to recce a few, buy one, keep it in French Pol for a while then head West, ultimately to NZ. Would love to share this adventure.

Rochefort to Asturia (Northern Spain)

I am moving Dutch Courage of Cowes (Southerly 115) from Rochefort to Santander, and probably onto to Gijon between 8 May and 25 May. Will drive down to the boat, although need a couple of days to sort stuff out. Could also pick crew up from La Rochelle (Airport, bus to the town centre). I would normally do this alone, but am happy to take 1-2 crew if interested. This is not a long trip and would sort someone wishing to get watch experience including night sailing. An interest in tapas and Wine would be a bonus. Dutch Courage has twin forward crossover berths, and if needed, a larger double berth converted in the saloon. I am based on the East Coast, but am in Lymington this weekend (22-23 May) and on the IOW the week after. Would rather have a brief glass of something face to face with anyone interested before committing as I’ve not used this service before.


June 25th depart allow 3-6 weeks to Azores.
From the Azores to Lisbon end of August.
Bluewater boat with Iridium Sat phone / AIS (AIS also in lifejackets) / Personel EPIRBS / Ships EPIRBs / Ocean safety 4 man liferaft / Dan Buoy / Oscar sling / Well-fitting and tight Jack Lines / Tethers / 2 x EVO autopilots / Very comfortable and well-founded yacht.
Would you like some sea miles? This is not a delivery so waiting for ideal conditions (swell and wind) is the way I play it. Crossing Biscay (see my profile photos) it was cruising chute most of the way.
1 crew needed Villamoura – Ayamonte – Maderia – Azores.
1 crew needed the Azores – Lisbon.
