Hi. I'm Filip, captain/skipper on my Beneteau 473, SY Penniless, and I'm joined by my daughter Sofie (27 y/o). After having participated in the ARC+ 2019 and done some sailing in 40+ monohulls through the years, I'm going for a world tour in my own Benefeau 473, starting in the Greek islands in May 2022 and ending in Australia in 2025. I'm looking for an open-minded crew to participate in my adventure sailing to enjoy waters of the Caribbean, Panama, Galapagos and French Polynesia in 2023. Diving will be part of the adventure if you are up to it.
