Sotileza is moored at Arzal on the Vilaine River in South Brittany.
The plan is a fairly relaxed sail south heading initially for the Bilbao area and then predominately day sailing around the Spanish and Portuguese coast. I need to briefly visit UK for late June early July but could continue onwards depending on what everyone wants to do. Sotileza has bunks for 7 but I choose not to sail with more than 4. Most of my sailing has been done as a pair.
Sotileza is not a racing boat so might not suit if you want to hog the rail with spray in your hair. But, it is a go anywhere boat kitted out for ocean travel. I'm quite happy to take on someone with not a lot of experience, but you must be a self starter, able to get on with all sorts, can go more than 2 days without insisting on a shower and up for a bit of adventure.
