Drake’s Island cruisers.

Fun-loving crew wanted.  Mature male captain seeks new mate(s) for exploring the South West and beyond. Regular outings from Plymouth, marina based Achilles 840 yacht, comfortable, safe and fast. Non-smoker’s please, good sense of humour essential, mid-week or weekend as semi-retired.

Sailing the Med is my Elixir

Hey, I will be sailing the Aegean/Ionian, this summer island hopping from June to Oct… No set schedule, where ever the wind blows… I am looking for interesting and adventurous crew/friend/partner to sail in Fun and Relaxed mode for all or part of the Cruise…

Cat sailing in Spanish Med

I am looking for an intelligent and interesting adventurous female companion to sail from Mainland Spain around the Balearics for one to two months. Intelligence is more important than experience.

ClassicSailing

Polly Agatha is a commercial charter yacht BUT sometimes fancies just having sailors onboard – pay your way (drinks and food) but just come on as crew.  Solent area – weekends and longer.

Corfu holiday opportunity

Northern Ionian, 30 August 2015, one week. Blue sea, easy sailing area, direct flights from the UK to Corfu. Looking for single people (over 45 preferred) to help sail and enjoy the sunshine on my 42ft Bavaria. Pay own flights and food. Must be willing to meet as a group before we leave.

Idaho lake sailing/summer-Cuba, Panama Winter

This may be my last big adventure/Sail, Or maybe not. Almost 20 years ago at age 50 something, I said my sailing down the length of Baja in a 25′ swing keel sloop and them crossing the Sea of Cortez and down the Mx Gold Coast as far south as Barra de Navidad. And of course, back again to homeport, Puerto Vallarta would be my last adventure. Well, not hardly. I’m still at it with a 31′ Spencer Sloop, vintage 1967 but has circumnavigated the globe, had a baby born below decks, and now sits waiting in Rio Dulce, Guatemala for my return in the late fall to go for it ….again, my last great sea adventure. ?
I am looking for someone very specific, so I realize this is just a lot of whooie to most reading this. But I’m only hoping to attract the one person (female) to make this all happen. Just one. So what I propose is that “one Person” be in contact and if we click so to speak( I hate corny cliches) could give it a try as a duo sailing a 30ft Catalina on Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho with the end goal of joining S/V Zula in Rio Dulce, Guatemala and make plans to sail to Cuba.(before the cruise ships arrive) and then down towards Panama. (on my bucket list) After that who knows, right? okay. I understand you may have some questions. so fire away. the weather’s starting to change here and I’ll be looking for you as crew. So let’s chat or whatever/

Looking for warm weather sailing opportunity

Hallo prospective boat owners/skippers – After some pretty brilliant sailing this year in English and Scottish waters I am now looking further afield to try and avoid winter! Available from November onwards anywhere in the Caribbean/Bahamas/Mexico would be nice but yet to discover The Grenadines. Will pay my share of the trip but staying in marinas every night is not within my budget and I prefer anchoring where possible. I am not a passenger crew and wish to be completely involved with all aspects of cruising/sailing. I love life aboard/afloat and am at my happiest when on, in or under the water! Team player, fun, talker when required, quiet when required! Social drinker, non-smoker, love fish …… what more could you ask for I am your perfect crew!

Crew House – What is it?

A crew house is like a hostel where crew can stay while they are waiting to be called to sail or looking for their next crewing job. While this may conjure up pictures of spartan, run-down accommodation where eight people are sharing a dormitory and sleeping on camp beds, the crew house of today is far more modern and comfortable.

Today’s off-duty sailor is more likely to have their own room with loads of personal space, a large TV and cable access in their bedroom, access to free Internet and wifi, washer and dryer, a heated swimming pool and free pick-up on arrival. This is what guests may expect from Mary’s Crew House in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Located on 17th Street, Mary’s is convenient for all marinas and crew agencies.

Far across the Atlantic, The Gallery is located in Gosport, Hampshire in the United Kingdom. With five double bedrooms, this elegant Grade II listed property accommodates up to 15 people in comfort and style. The living room is furnished with an open fireplace, comfy sofas and quirky artworks commissioned by a local artist.

Captain Jason and Chef Jennifer offer a warm welcome to superyacht crew and professionals who stay at one of their two townhouses in the centre of old Antibes in France. With 25 years’ experience in the yacht industry and extensive contacts, The Crew Grapevine is the perfect location to chill out for a bit of R&R, study or share experiences with like-minded people from all over the world. Jason conducts a two-hour seminar each week during the yachting season for guests to learn new skills and brush up on their old ones.

The Crew House St Maarten in Netherlands Antille offers comfortable, extremely safe accommodation for the sailor, backpacker or visitor on a budget. Guests speak well of the staff and the food here. Booze on the island is rumoured to be cheaper than water!

Sailors all over the world can find comfortable accommodation in all price ranges to lay their weary heads and get recharged for their next posting. Lodgings are clean and well kept by experienced proprietors who are sympathetic to the needs of the resting sailor.
