Good Morning Lads,

I won't go into a ton of details here, because I find typing annoying but in short:

I have been hired as a delivery skipper for a 31' sailing yacht in Agadir Morocco. She needs to get to Bergen Norway. Flights for crew are paid, provisions are paid, and there is a chance for a bonus upon safe arrival. The boat is in good condition and seaworthy from what I am told.

You would need to be in Agadir by July 8th or so.

Ports of call would be (in order)
Casablanca/Rabbat
Lisbon, Portugal
A Coruña, Spain
Brest, France
Dublin, Ireland
Caledonian Canal, Scotland
and finally Bergen Norway.

The trip will cover about 2,700 statute miles and take a little over a month.

This will be my first long haul off shore passage, but I've got no doubt we can make it safely. I'm looking for someone with a cool head, lots of guts, and just a wee bit of experience.

If you're looking to get some new stamps in your passport and get a good sea-story to tell at the pub, this is your chance.

Anyone interested can shoot me an email at

Far left liberals, people with blue hair, drunkards, and bad harmonica players not accepted.

Fair winds and following seas boys...


Cheers,
Rooster

This sounds like a grand adventure! If I did not already have an obligation to be in Jakarta on the 8th, and I was not vastly under-qualified, I would certainly be looking at putting my name in. Best of luck!!

No one is really underqualified guys.  Even a few weekends on a day sailer on a lake is enough IMO.  I'll teach ya.

Should we move to discord or at least to another 'free' forum template site?

As the title says. Ning has had recurring problems over the years.Should we move to discord (basically a big chat room) or make a new forum on Proboards, phpBB , or the like?Plus it'll allow us to have a fresh, new start. 10 years of dead accounts and old posts and old pictures can be archived and we can start anew.See More
