Watch: The Grateful Sailor
June 11, 2020 update:
For the past 18 months, Grateful has been all thru the Mediterranean and out to the canaries. I am a full time live-aboard. So far there have been dozens of crew and passengers on this boat, and everyone goes away with the biggest smiles on their faces...nothing could make me happier.
Meanwhile, after 8000 NM in 18 months, here’s where we are:
At the moment we are moored in a marina, after an exhilarating fast ride of about 750 nautical miles up the Atlantic from Canaries to Portugal. Hundreds of Dolphins, Killer whales, Baluga whales, sea turtles, super fast downwind sailing, incredible sunsets...yep, this is sailing.
So, now its time to cruise portugal for a month or so, then head east, into the Med.
As always, looking for cool, like-minded people to share the ride! Figure 50 euro a day to share the expenses.
We have space for 4 more crew. Please be willing to pitch in with everything. Please don’t be a picky eater, unless you want to always cook and clean for yourself.
Stay for a week or more, just message me to find out what’s available...now...
We love to experience everything from the historic villages, local foods, making new friends and finding old friends too. Deep and shallow anchorages, and sailing!! We love to have the sails out in all conditions from gentle breezes to fast heavy winds and bigger seas. The Sense 50 is very strong and powerful, yet graceful and elegant in the water. The whole experience is just amazing.
I am looking for crew that can contribute ideas, music, cooking, cleaning, photography, conversation, digital media assistance,etc.
YOU WILL (learn to) SAIL!!
We share expenses. This is an extremely luxury boat. Usually there are 2 to 6 aboard.
No experience necessary.
Boat is perfect and like new.
In the water.
One of the main goals of this adventure is to fully immerse into all the water sports. Sailing, surfing, diving, kiting etc.
I am hoping to find just the right partner who can compliment my lifestyle as we journey around the globe. We have produced many videos to date, and I want to fully capture and share the whole experience ala La Vegabond or Delos. If you think you would be a good match with me in this adventure, by all means reach out!
