Notwithstanding crocodiles, land mines, pirates and bad press....
I'm going to voyage, visit and explore ports and harbours of Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia.

My personal interest is the music of the region and Arab to African diversity of culture. (Whilst avoiding another cold wet UK winter.)

Itinary dependent on current security/safety. Please check national government travel, visa & health advice.
Please be aware of the local laws and respectful conduct expected.
These are safe countries with strong Islamic tradition, attitude and law.

Looking for 2 or 3 crew to explore with. You are welcome to join for a week or the whole voyage.
