sailing-PlanB Urgent

Sailing from Mallorca to Sicily

Crew wanted: Competent Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:12 m
Location: Spain
Destination: Italy
Logged in: 1 hours ago

sailing-PlanB: I am looking for a crew to sail with me from Palma to Licata, Sicily. It is planned to stop in Sardinia as well as western Sicily before going to Licata. It is not a typical delivery as we will have some extra time built in. Directly one could do the journey in 6 days but we allow for nearly two weeks to avoid adverse weather conditions, to stop along the way and have fun. If we arrive early there are options for day-sailing in Sicily. l am open minded ...
I did nearly the same journey earlier this year (Valencia-Mallorca-Sardinia-Sicily-Malta) on the boat of a friend of mine which means that I am familiar with the planned itiniary.
My qualifications: German (SKS) similar to the RYA Coastal Skipper. I also have the Short Range Certificate (Vhf radio license). Sailing experience of the North Sea, Baltic Sea, Med, Canaries and Caribbean.
Clarification regarding costs: I will not pay for restaurant visits (if any), sightseeing etc. but for onboard only

Jethro: I'm looking for female crew to sail with me. Sailing experience would help, but is not essential. You will have your own cabin. Fit, fun person would be great. Non smoker and reasonable drinker essential. Absolutely no drugs.

I am now in Airlie Beach and will travel around the Whitsundays for a month or so before heading slowly back down the coast. All I want is someone to help me manage the boat. I will supply food and no contribution is required towards the costs.

This is a great way for you to get to know Australia's beauty at no cost.
