twsail: Hi, I am Geoffrey, 54 years old, I am taking a sabbatical year from work to sail a boat wherever I wish.

I start preparing the boat in April 2017 and will be based out of Hartlepool marina for five months, plenty of day sailing and overnight trips to build experience and miles, I will then head to the Azores from September.

The boat is a Halmatic 30, a great boat in any weather, and the addition of windvane steering helps make the journey easier on the crew.

I am looking for someone to share this adventure with, primarily because I prefer sharing experiences, and also it will be easier for watchkeeping and sleeping :-)

The purpose of the trip ? To discover, challenge, reflect, and enjoy, :-)

From London to Spain / Portugal

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat

nt57: Hello good people!

Sometime in July or early August I'll take my yacht from London, head along the UK south coast, hop across the Channel, and then either straight across the Bay of Biscay, or take a slower route following the French and Spanish coasts (depending on time mostly, but probably I'll go straight across Biscay).

My aim is to get to Portugal later this year, probably hang around there for a while with some trips to Gibraltar, Spain etc, and then next year... Well, see what happens.

I've lived and worked in many different countries as a scuba instructor, and my plan is to keep that life style going. I love exploring new places, meeting all sorts of people, and just seeing what's out there. I now work remotely, so I can sail pretty much freely.

I'm looking for crew with a similar mindset: adventurous, fun, and interested in seeing the world. Your sailing experience is less important than your willingness to learn, get involved in the tasks onboard, and get your hands dirty.

We'll share any costs onboard - food, moorings, fuel etc., although I plan to keep things as cheap as possible!

So send over a message if you'd like to join me on any or all of the trip.

Crew needed for Summer 2017 in Greece

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:9 m

Destination: United Kingdom
Logged in: 34 minutes ago

trisailor: I am a Yachtmaster Coastal qualified skipper with Commercial Endorsement plus the usual certificates (First Aid, Sea Survival, VHF Operator, ISAF Offshore). Over 10,000 miles experience including two passages over 1,000 miles each (Cowes - Lisbon and Azores - Plymouth), over a dozen cross-channel passages (many at night, mostly as skipper).

I am currently selling my Dragonfly920 so not planning any further sailing trips on her, but I have a share in a GibSea 352 in Greece and am looking for crew for two weeks in the Ionian 25 June - 9 July. I have booked my flights to Preveza and we will pick up the boat from there. I have one experienced person coming with me but still looking for one or two additional people. Experience not essential as this will be a relaxed sailing holiday not a mad marathon, with plenty of time to visit the different islands and spend some time ashore.


Sailing a classic yacht arround the world

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:11 m
Location: Netherlands
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 37 minutes ago

Classicsailor: Hi everybody
Easy going openminded sailor a bit shy looking for company on a dream trip
very safety consious but not a planner so no set ports or destinations but sail where the wind gets me, satnav wil be used along side clasic navigation
Wish list is south America exploring the amazon river for a time, go around cape horn to the pacific if possible.
Looking to travel without a carbon footprint, no engine use if possible, and running on vegetable oil if available.
Looking to get a stress free life sailing and meeting new people and cultures, looking for the unexpected.

For now finding the rhythm of the ocean, getting lost under a starry sky, lead by the wind, waves and stars to my unknown destination, I've had enough of the so called civilised world with in happy people, this civilization I do not need
My yacht is a 50. Year old wooden sloop not luxurious but one off the best long dinstance sailing vessels i know equiped for single handed sailing. The perfect crew is a spiritual guided person who's looking for spiritual fulfilled life and be one with all life
I'm open never able to a just to "normal" life always a bit out of the box, really quit detailed plsnning it never works and is disappointing, I will start my trip from Holland tru the English channel not even planning tides and currents just go at first light and see when I put in for the night.
As soon as I hit the Atlantic the wind will guide me, zo anything is possible, but it will be a trip outside the paved "normal" routes of course I need a port at some point, but the main purpose is to find inner tranquillity and peace a new life.

No experience needed learning on the water

Sy Fairwinds: This is not an add from a lonely old man looking to find a relationship, nor is it an add from a older couple to find someone to take care of the dirty or heavy tasks.

We are a young and energetic group of people looking for like-minded people to take part in the adventure of a lifetime, and share the costs related to it. No paid position, shared costs

Give me a shout if you are interested to join the crew.

Jon888: Fit and open minded certified ocean yachtmaster is looking for 3-4 crew (couples or singles) to share some of the running expenses while pleasure cruising around the ionian sea as of mid August 2017 until end of September. Crew should be like minded and preferably have some prior live-aboard and sailing experience. It's a great possibility to further hone your live-aboard, piloting and sailing skill, and also some catamaran and larger boat handling experience.

The skipper is an experienced coastal and bluewater/ocean cruiser and live a-boarder with a good knowledge of the area. He's fully able to single hand the boat but enjoys sharing the experience. He's fluent in English, French and Swedish and speaks basic Spanish and some German. He's tech savvy and likes most water sports, biking, hiking, nature, photography or just enjoying a good meal with a glass of wine and interesting discussions with crew and friends.

He Is open to a flexible itinerary but prefers anchoring in secluded bays to busy harbours. All house hold and sailing activities will be done jointly by skipper and crew. A low but reasonable crew contribution is expected for food, fuel and a small boat maintenance fund to be agreed upon prior to joining. All modern facilities available on board a comfortable, safe and well equipped catamaran.

Please note that this is not a commercial proposition and only for vacation/holiday purposes.
Please do not contact me for a payed position or for professional yacht industry training.
