jonmartins: My sailing ventures are of purchasing reasonably priced yachts and then delivering them to where a profitable sale will lead to sufficient enough funds for a repeat :)

Crew is SOMETIMES needed. Individuals with real attitude. Couples, group of friends or someone just looking for an experience are unfortunately not desired.

When not delivering, sailing around New Zealand, Cook Islands, Fiji and Tonga. Have shifted from my steel darling I built 10 years ago to a simpler, smaller and more practical Davidson 28.

Perhaps the closest to an old school pirate, I am actually an incomplete paraplegic on crutches but most of the time on a wheelchair. In 2014 I became the first para to sail single-handed across the Pacific.

Cruising from Stockholm

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:9 m
Location: Sweden
Destination: Scotland
Logged in: 2 hours ago

river_serenity: I recently bought a Scampi in Stockholm, and am now preparing to begin living aboard and cruising indefinitely. I am looking for help to work on the boat in Stockholm in April, prior to beginning cruising in the Stockholm Archipelago. After that we will probably sail round the coast of Sweden and Norway, then to Shetland, West coast of Scotland, and south from there.

I am looking for one or two people to join my girlfriend and I.

Time and destination given in the fields above are arbitrary - in reality the plan is flexible, and you could stay for anything from weeks to years.

transat West to East adventure

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:34 f
Location: United States
Destination: Ireland
Logged in: 2 hours ago

kaicarno: update: 28th March 2017 -->
USA to Europe

Crew wanted for an exciting trip to Europe with the intention of finding adventure and exploring new places. Total miles to sail about 5000, including the cruising in Europe.

The crew which I am looking for does not need experience. I usually work on a first come, first serve basis. Communal living experience is a big plus if you don't already have sailing experience.

I have a lot of work to do before the boat is ready to leave for the crossing. I am now looking for crew who would like to come to the boat earlier, so as to help prepare the boat. This is a good chance to learn more about boats and boat maintenance. For all days of work I will provide food and accommodation (on board), as well as drinks etc. I would like to have help from the 14th April.

--- The Sailing ---

This is a transatlantic passage on a small boat. It will take 3 to 4 weeks. Once in Europe we are free to route our voyage onwards. My idea is to explore West coast of Ireland. Then round the Northern cape of Ireland (Malin Head) to then visit Scotland. The Voyage finishes in August in Brittany, northern France.

Important dates (preliminary ETA/D - Estimated Time of Arrival/Departure):

19th April: ETD North Carolina.
25 days transat 2400 miles

14th May - ETA Azores.
10 days to explore the islands. 500 miles.

25th May - ETD Azores.
9 days passage. 1100 miles.

3rd June - ETA Ireland.
3 weeks cruising Ireland. 500 miles.

24th June ETD Ireland/ETA Scotland.
4 weeks to cruise in Scotland and making progress South.

22nd July ETD Scotland/ETA England
One week English South coast.

29th ETD England/ETA France.
One week Northern coast of Brittany in France.

5th August and onwards.
Some work and preparation for leaving the boat.
Voyage over.

--- The yacht ---
The yacht is a Jeanneau Melody from the 1980's. She is a famous French build and a very Ocean-worthy vessel. In France most sailors know the make.

The mast is high, and the keel is deep. We have new sails all round, including an excellent spinnaker.

--- The Conditions ---

This is a good trip for anyone wanting to learn more about sailing, and simply sail more miles.
In the tidal areas in Ireland, England and France we will have excellent training for navigation. On the transatlantic passage I have a sextant and some experience using it.

There is flexibility for when to join and leave the boat, and also how many people we are on board. The boat needs at least 2 crew, and we can be up to 6.

We run a shared expenses deal on board. Generally ports and harbours are very cheap so the expenses will never be high. A good estimate is 15 euro/usd per day per person

We will cook on board and eat well. The food is less meat and more dried food and vegetables plus fish if we catch any (No refrigeration) .

--- The Skipper ---

I am a qualified yacht master and experienced sailor. In fact I have crossed the Atlantic 12 times by sailing boat. I am aged 30. Total miles logged are about 108.000 miles on sailing boats 60 feet or less.

I speak French (to some extent), English and Swedish.

Please visit my homepage at: (although this is very outdated now) to find out more about me. Contact me through is best.

I don't mind being asked to give references from previous crew.
