Mr Mike

Hello All. I'm looking for any interesting crewing opportunities, largely in Europe, but would consider further afield for the right opportunity.

My experience includes crewing and leading 24-hour watches in Atlantic/Hebrides/North Sea/Med, including a direct sail from Donegal to St Kilda in a Frances 26, and Oban to Maldon in Essex aboard the 100-ft brigantine Lady of Avenel via the Caledonian Canal and North Sea.

Most recent trip was six days in April 2024 from Woolverstone (Ipswich) to Lowestoft and back with Fairlead Sailing, supporting crew training. Two night sails, plus one night anchored off Brightlingsea on return leg (and two days storm-bound in Lowestoft).

Two other recent voyages: crewing aboard a Maxi 1100 for two weeks in July 2022, 2022 out of La Rochelle; and Jersey to Plymouth aboard a Beneteau Oceanis 393, via Guernsey, Alderney, Brixham, Torquay, Dartmouth and Salcombe in Sep 2023.

Also various booze-cruises in Croatia, Virgin Islands and UK South Coast. I crewed a Beneteau Oceanis 393 from Aegina to Preveza round the Peloponnese in August 2017, a voyage which included night sailing.

I have the RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification (2016) and an outdoor first aid certificate. I'm a keen windsurfer, skier, fit and decent cook. I'm retired so flexible, and easy-going.
