Dear Shipmates

Introduction

We're sailing a Catana 471, a great cruising/performance catamaran. It's a strong boat and excellent sailing!
We will be sailing the Mediterranean. Currently in Greece but summer of 2024 will likely sail to Turkey. Back to Greece in the fall, we winter near Athens. Our purpose is to hop from island to island, coast to coast, wherever the wind takes us. There are so many wonderful places to visit, and enjoy life on the sea.

About the boat, the plans, and current crew

usually cleancomfortablevery safevessel is survey certifiedvery spacioushave a holidayseek adventurefulfill a dreamlive off the grid

Boat
We'll be on a 47' Catana catamaran. If you've never been on a cat before, it's probably the equivalent of a much longer monohull in regards to living area.. There are 3 queen cabins with one being the owners side, two heads.

Plans
The plan is to island hop in Greece and Turkey. I live on the boat full time except the winter months. I welcome crew that want to learn to sail, no experience necessary. But if you do have experience, we can find some challenges for you too! Of you have more experience than me, all the better!

Prefer a clean and healthy diet, I'm a moderate drinker and non-smoker and hope that you are similar. I pretty much just enjoy the wind, water and waves, traveling and meeting new people.

This trip we'll hang around the Mediterranean for about a year or two. After that, heading across the Atlantic to Caribbean.

What is expected of the crew

We're fairly laid back on this boat. It's a cruising boat and the idea is to have fun. I will cover the majority of costs of the boat but would expect that you would contribute a small amount to help cover your own provisions.

If you don't have any sailing skills, then ask questions and learn some! We need help with a lot of things besides the sailing part... everyone should pitch in with cooking and cleaning. I'll try to have 2-4 crew on board at a time, and do what I can to spread out the skill types.

All crew members get a vote in the choice of location, captain gets the tiebreaker. We'll choose a location, hang out as long as it seems fun, then move on to the next. No smoking or drugs allowed on board.

Safety is foremost on this boat. Just be careful, ask questions when doing something you're not familiar with.
