Throughout 2023 U.K. to France, Spain, and further South
A flexible sailing opportunity for crew wishing to help cruise a 43ft yacht visiting various ports as the boat will be long term cruising throughout 2023. ‘Venetian’ is a Nauticat 43ft Ketch. Built in Finland she is of heavy displacement with plenty of accommodation. She can be sailed singlehanded but due to her size extra pairs of hands is helpful. Also have a Cornish Limpet onboard, SUP, and a Tender for exploring Creeks and Rivers. Have had a great pool of crew previously making sailing really sociable and enjoyable. No experience necessary as happy to give tuition - just need to be willing to give it a try and help with tasks. You will have separate cabin and heads. Small contribution from crew towards shared food onboard, use of diesel / gas, and any marina mooring (if required - tend to anchor lots!) *Note: there is a fluffy dog called 'Bosun' (see photos) onboard so must be happy with woofers!
I came across Michael on here, contacted him, explained my situation. I hope to work on super yachts eventually, but wanted to get sailing experience. Finding people to give you a chance and help you learn is hard to come by, by Michael was a gem. If you get the chance, I'd highly recommend!! Will be going sailing with Michael again, he was so clear with everything, explained things well and to a point where a completely newbie would understand. Felt comfortable and had an amazing time, oh and I can't forget Bosun!! Bosun completed the trip, precious doggie!! Thank you again Michael!!
