2 experienced sailors (m + w) looking for a sailboat headed North leaving from Grenada around Xmas

Hi everyone! I love exploring the world on a sail boat and am looking for sailing opportunities with open minded, friendly people. I have been sailing since the age of 15 on all sorts of boats. I did my German licenses when I was 16 and 18 (so a while back). I've then worked as a sailing instructor during school and uni holidays, done a couple of yacht transfers, sailed on the tall ship Alexander von Humboldt and ended up racing mid size and small boats (505 class) in the Berlin and Baltic sea region (had to stop doing that when I moved to Cologne 10 years ago). I have done several trips (15+) as a watch keeper and also participated in a three weeks yacht race on the Baltic sea (the Baltic Sprint Cup) in 2009. I have done a one-week skipper training in Elba in 2016 but always found it too stressful to be a captain myself. I got seasick one or two times in very bad weather, but not for long.

I am a lawyer living in Cologne, but since I'm my own boss, I am pretty flexible in terms of time-off and I can also work from almost anywhere provided I have good internet connection. I like cooking and I'm a social person with positive energy.

Sailing the Caribean islands


Maxi joined me on Journeyman for another sail in the West Indies. She stayed for 3 weeks and was a great addition to the crew that was already on the boat. Maxi is an experienced sailor with very well developed skills all around the boat. She is hands on in all situations and knows what it means to act together as a team. The more the boat leans over and speeds through the water the better it is for her enjoyment. We had great laughs in our discussions and did some nice hikes and outings besides the sailing. Pleasant and smiling, she was up for all of it. With persons like her the cruises are easier to handle and a learning experience for all. Thanks Maxi, hope to see you again on Journeyman.

Sailing with Journeyman


Just for a few days on the boat, Maxi has shown her good skills not only as a competent crew but also as an easygoing and funny to be with individual. She can call in again and hopefully stay for a longer period on the boat.

Competent Sailing Companion


Maxi joined me for an autumn weekend sail on the Ijsselmeer. She had a good feel steering the boat and was not getting bored discussing the perfect sail trim for each condition with me. She was also fast learning the various trim lines and handling the asymmetrical spinnaker. On top of that also very nice company. I hope we meet on the water again soon!

Maxie have joined me on the coldest part of my trip (Vaenern lake to Malmo) . I don't know many people who would be capable to be in such an extreme weather on a sailing boat and be at the same time so positive. She is well skilled and well equipped, great cook (a bit slow with cutting ?), tidy,... She's more than welcome on my boat at any time.
