Join in for your first Atlantic crossing

If you would like to get your first experience in off shore cruising, you are welcome to join us on our crossing from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean before Christmas this year! On the way you are welcome to learn and participate in the sailing or just relax and enjoy the trip.

When & where: Planning to leave harbor at the Canary Islands November 20. Will reach land by December 20 the latest, preferably St. Lucia. So please reserve four weeks for your journey (+ we strongly recommend you to spend a few weeks exploring the Caribbean islands when you are there).

Who are we? A fully trained Norwegian/English crew of three, with world wide navigation certificate and experience in ocean crossing. Our vessel is a 50 foot Benneteau with four double cabins, each with a bathroom/toilet, equipped with all safety equipment and instruments for long journeys. Also satellite phone for necessary communication.

Who are you? A possible globe trotter with interest for the sea. No sailing or navigational skills required. Couples or close friends are preferred, age 30+. We hope this will create a good social climate for the journey

Crew join in on a shared-cost basis. Crew bring their personal gear and cost their one-way ticket. We prepare the boat, get all the supplies and prepare 3 daily meals, as long as weather conditions allows. You will receive full training during the voyage.

If you are interested, please let us know!

Wow..what a fantastic opportunity for someone...What a bad time to be broke and needing all the work I can muster Or i would take you up on it..the wife probably not..

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

PS:
Due to bad weather, we need more time to pass Biscaya and Spain/Portugal (no surprise...). We will not reach the Canaries in time to do a crossing before Christmas. New departure date: early January 2010.
Still interested, let us know!
