Dear Shipmates


Leaving Portugal to Madeira at the very end of June (29th) - it will be a 5-6 day trip.
Young at heart, I normally I sail alone but I'm willling accept crew for this leg, willing to learn more, gain experience or for mile building - crew will be sharing the front cabin.
If you can cook vegetarian, you already have my attention ;)
No seasikness is very important for this trip.
Must disembark upon arrival (next day) as I will be receiving guests.
If everything works well there is the possibility of making the return trip to the Algarve, about a week later.
All onboard expenses covered, no contibution required.
