Sailing from Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK to the Gulf of Biscay (France/Spain)

Crew wanted: Nanny
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:40 f

Bonito: Foreword:
We just found out beginning of 2017, that my wife has terminal (7-10 years, but not dead yet) bone marrow cancer (Multiple Myeloma) and is undergoing treatment (doing well so far too) here in the UK in Southampton. So we are stuck here for a while (maybe years, who knows). Our Mommy is going to be in the hospital for about a month for her own stem cell transplant. She will be in isolation and the kids aren't allowed to see her, so we have agreed on we will take a trip down south and have fun. So we are still looking, for someone, who wants to sail with us, we will be going to France and maybe Spain, just not across the big pond for the moment, till everything stabilizes.
The kids need a break too, we have had too many hours at hospitals this year already. So, I will be taken our kids away from hospitals and death and grumpy old people for a little break. There is no date set as of yet, but something around August and for about 4 weeks give a few.
We are based in Cowes (no Cows actually around here, so don't ask :), on the Isle of Wight, the bottom end of the cold UK.

Thank you for understanding.

Looking for someone fun, amateur crew/nanny who wants to learn or brush up their skills (prefer girls due to having two girly daughters).
Sailing from the Isle of Wight, UK, via Channel Islands, then somewhere around the Golf of Biscay. Then back to rainy UK.
1 Adults (childish) sailing with 2 kids (girls) and a dog (puppy).
Inquire for more info.

To answer a few questions, ahead of time.
I have been sailing for nearly 40 years on and off and owning various sailboats. I still am an avid windsurfer. I have done the ocean passage from US to the UK via the Azores in this boat. The boat has a new chart plotter, radar and VHF with AIS (commercial ship tracking) and radar.
The boat has a windvane, trimmed (tuned) the sails, so the boat, steers it self. Easy to do :) I'll show you if needed.
As to the length of the trip, I am planning for 3-4 weeks roundtrip.
A crew of max 2 additional, this way there's is more room for everyone on board. The boat has a total capacity of 7 berth.
We are a family of 2 kids (5&8) and wife and I plus dog.
The sailboat is a 1986 O'Day 40 foot sloop. If you like, email us and we’ll send you some pictures. :)
Basically, what I would be asking you, is steering/watch and maybe a extra hand if needed, or to look after the kids (they are lovely and don’t really need supervision, its just in case), rest would be chilling time for reading a book or whatever your pleasure is :) .
Final destination is Martinique in the Caribbean maybe USA (depends on you).
I have a private pilot license (Airplanes), and I am very picky when it comes to safety! Therefore there will be absolutely NO SMOKING and NO ALCOHOL on board. That doesn't mean you can't have a beer/wine, just be sober when we set sails again :)
Hope that answers some questions. Please feel free to ask anything you like to know!
If you are truly interested, then I would say, we should have a chat on the phone/online and go from there. Also I would like to have a recent photo of you, please.

You got what it takes?

kaicarno: Hello,

Here are a few dates in July and August for some interesting cruising around the British Isles. From Irelands West coast to Scotland, then Southwards to Isles of Scilly, and S coast England from Falmouth to Plymouth, before sailing the North coast of Brittany.

I do ask for crew who has experience sailing and preferably quite good sailing gear. I do have life jackets on board.

Track the boat at

Send a message if you are interested in any or all of the trip!

--- The yacht ---
The yacht is a Jeanneau Melody from the 1980's. She is a famous French build and a very Ocean-worthy vessel. 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 run a shared expenses deal on board. Generally ports and harbours relatively cheap so the expenses will never be high. A good estimate is 15 euro/gbp per day per person

--- The Skipper ---

I am a qualified yacht master and do a lot of sailing, all of the time. I've crossed the Atlantic from West to East twice this year already and I work on sailing boats professionally. This is my holiday time though! I'm Swedish and aged 31. My languages are English and Swedish... but also French.

Contact me through

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