Thistle Doo heading out from Europe and back to Australia
The decks of Thistle Doo are short of crew, and that she's about to head out soon - not a good state of affairs!!
Update: Currently at Brest, shorty leaving for Spain then Portugal where 2 crew members are waiting. Room for one more heading to Panama and beyond, via the Canaries.
Finishing up the installation of solar and wind generation systems, HydroVane steering and all running rigging ready for passage sailing. Heading off for proving-sailing and then across the Atlantic and Pacific - or the Atlantic and the Southern Ocean; just depends on what becomes most viable.
I can do it single-handed but just why? Much better to share the adventure and the rewards. One thing though, I need crew that knows how to sail; I can teach "Thistle Doo", but can't teach "beginner sailors". Please, if you can't sail, have little experience then please don't apply
Does this interest you?
Just an update, not trying to be rude, evasive, selfish, just the coronavirus outbreak has lots of implications here and just how things go, are still not clear. But finally, things seem to be opening up.
But one thing emerges now, regarding entry to Australia. For some time it might be difficult for someone without residency or a visa, or a prepaid airline ticket, to enter so keep that in mind. It seems that an Aussies or Kiwis would have no such problems though. To sail with me, you must have a way of managing this situation.
