I'm urgently looking for 2 competent crew members to assist in sailing a 38 foot Motorsailer to Portugal at the end of May.

Watches will be a 3 hours on 6 hours off system.
The boat is presently berthed in Anglesey. We would set off on 28th/29th May to Cork for a final weather forecast check, before setting off across the Bay of Biscay, then around Cape Finisterre down the West coast of Spain and Portugal to
Cape St Vincent and along the south coast of Portugal to our
destination, Vila Real de San Antonio on the river Guadiana, which makes the natural boarder between Portugal and Southern Spain.
This is a voyage of approximately 1000 miles.
Everything on board is all found except alcoholic drinks and meals ashore.
