ONE PLACE LEFT!
One person needed to crew on my beautiful Norwegian gaff cutter from Risør, SE Norway to Newcastle upon Tyne.
Experience of similar length trips under sail is essential, and familiarity with gaff rig, or desire to learn how to use it, would be a very great advantage. All expenses paid if qualified and flexible.
Marihona is traditionally rigged, with an excellent suit of sails. She does not have an engine or need one. She is very well equipped with all the usual safety gear etc. including an Aries windvane.
The trip will take a few days, you may be away for 10 days, we will be waiting for the best wind and weather for a pleasant trip, which is unpredictable this far ahead.
The end of May or the start of June 2019 is what I'm aiming for, a large area of high pressure giving moderate North to East winds will be ideal. Any strong SW-lies and we'll let them blow through, and spend a few extra days enjoying the amazing Norwegian scenery.
