Looking for a female sailing / cruising mate , companion.

What is the Itineray ?

Currently I am in Chesapeake Bay / Virginia and more or less stuck. Due to the world wide problems I can not go anywhere at this stage
. But I can still sail around here in Virginia .

Now ( 23 June 2020 ) I am alongside at a Zimmerman Marine yard in Mathews VA in order to get the engine better then it was before .

In about two weeks time that should be fixed and then I will check out of the USA and will go direction Azores and from there to west coats Ireland . Or if I am in the mood and the weather is oke then I will do Chesapeake Bay to Ireland in one go. It is only 3400 nm .

Why I am looking for a female crew ? For many years I sailed single handed till I found company and that was a big change in my life and I was happy with it . But a " rock" came in the way and I was single again and it is much nicer to share the sailing/cruising with somebody.

What to expect ? A small 34 foot but good and strong boat with the basics on board and a skipper - who sail around the oceans with this boat for the last 23 years - who wants to share his cruising experience during this ocean crossing.

Running costs for the boat are for me but a contribution is welcome but no must at all . For the costs of the provisions I think it should be fair if we share this but on what base that depends on your budget.
