Hello! I am going to sail the ARC 2019 with my Bavaria 40 "Simane" from 2002. She is in good shape and well equipped. I need two more crew, male or female, age 18-81. They have to share cabin, so a couple would be fine. I expect good behavior, and a good atmosphere aboard. The voyage starts from Norway late august to Scotland, Caledonian and Crinnan canals, Irish Sea to Cork. Then across Biscay to Bayona, and follow the coast to Lagos. From Lagos to Porto Santo and Madeira or straight to the Canary Islands. If time enough, I plan to visit all the Islands there. We have to be in Las Palmas GC about November 11th. The rally starts November 24th, with ETA St. Lucia December 15th. Thereafter I plan to be cruising in the Caribbean and leave "Simane" in Grenada until next season. About me; I´m 81 years young. Height 1,88 and weighs 85 kg. I have sailed all these waters before. Also sailed the ARC in 2010 with a smaller boat.
