Sailing Spain to Crete in April/May and Boat Sitting in Crete in June.

I grew up by the sea in a small place in Northern Norway where there was no roads, so wherever we want to go, it had to be by boat. My work has been related to boats and the sea for all my life, and I have traveled thousands of nautical miles.

I have a master degree in physics, an electrical engineer and also holder of a Deck officer Class 5 certificate for pleasure Craft world wide. Now I have retired and start sailing, maybe for a circumnavigation. I have no fixed schedule or plan for the longer run, just enjoying life.

I have owned several smaller boats and three years ago I bought me a Leopard 40 catamaran and have so far logged more than 5000 nm on it. I have sailed Snowbird around the Baltic sea and some costal sailing in Sweden-Denmark. Last summer I spent four months sailing from Norway to Almerimar, Spain, before going back for the winter.

Now I'm in Norway, returning to my boat in Spain April 15th and plan to start sailing to Crete around April 24th. A distance of about 1500nm. There will be two overnight crossings and a longer 3-4 day 450nm sail form Malta to Crete and the plan is to be there in beginning of June. This will be a good opportunity for someone who want some mile building.
Please take a look on the planned route in my pictures.

In June I will leave my boat in Crete and go back to Norway for 3-4 weeks, and then it will be an opportunity for a boat sitter. I will return in end of June and start exploring the Greek Islans and Aegean Sea in July.

I have sailed mostly alone, but now I'm looking for someone to join me, mainly for the long and overnight crossings. You can join the boat where you want, that we can agree about.
Lack of experience is not a big issue, everyonehas to start somewhere and I will teach you everything you want to know. :)

There also may be an opportunities to join me for a longer period.., If we get along well and you have the opportunity.
Maybe you want to sail the Greek Islands. :)
Write me a message, ask any questions, tell me where and when you want to join.
I expect no financial contributions except your food.

I had some crew joining me twice before and can provide their feedback. :)

Great skipper

Andor is a very good skipper. He puts the safety of the crew over everything and was very patient with a newbie like me. I learned a lot crossing the Baltic Sea with him.
