Iím sailing my Bavaria 46 to Slovenia from Greece. Great mileage builder and adventure through my favourite islands. Plan to take 10-14 days to do the sail. Looking for stable crew members who enjoy life and sailing. Fun loving but non drinkers on watch. Prefer non smokers, sorry. Great way to practice your English and see some great places in the Med. I plan to visit 3 islands or so in Greece and a few in Croatia on the way. 1100 nautical miles. I cover boat costs but you cover your own food and travel expenses. I will truck the boat from Slovenia to Kiel, Germany and then remast and sail to Stockholm, Sweden. Itís possible to join on that leg as well.
If were ship shape good weather and crew is in agreement early in week. If there are problems to fix then a little later in week. I plan to bottom paint and install new flexfold prop April 2nd then go in water day after. When in water, Install sails, Proper rig tweak and were in business after a short sea trial.
Need to be in Slovenia by April 15th - 16th for truck loading. Boat arrives in Kiel Germany 4 days later. Unfortunately I canít ride with truck follow cars. They have 8 hour shifts at night. No day driving. In Kiel need to unload remast and tweak. Then ready for leg 2 to Stockholm. I plan to spend a few days in Venice then train or pane to Kiel. Hamburg airport is nearest if you plan to do that leg.
Speed plan. We have 1100 sea miles for first leg. Itís a fast boat and plan to hold 6 + knots average if bad winds we will motor, if over 20 will consider minimum sail and motor. You get the idea, good speed but comfort and safety is my main goal.
Itís supposed to be fun not scary. Especially at night.
Most important is an easy going personality, skill level is not that big of a deal.

Looking to charter a bareboat w/skipper for a 10-14 day honeymoon in Greece. I realize it is last minute, and guessing the season is just beginning that there must be some deals out there. Looking for a smaller boat at a smaller price. One-ways OK.
