Looking for: Caribbean;
Experience: 12000 ocean miles / 33000 coastal miles
My wife, Sue, and I are looking for an East/West Atlantic passage this autumn. We are free from early November until mid December. We have sailed our own boat, an Oyster 46, extensively in Northern Europe, the Med and in the Caribbean. This winter she is enjoying a re-fit in Falmouth. I have logged around 45,000 miles including three Atlantic crossings, mostly as skipper. Sue has logged around 25,000 miles including one Atlantic crossing, mostly as mate but sometimes as skipper. I have Yachtmaster Ocean, Sue has dayskipper and we have both completed the relevant RYA land based courses. Sue is a qualified nurse. We are happy to sail as skipper/mate or to join as crew. We both like cooking on board and expect to muck in with all the daily routines and contribute our share of provisioning costs. We are not looking to be paid. We like to sail safely within the capabilities of the boat and are not into racing!
