Most of our long term crew have moved on, one became professional, so we are looking for new crew who would like to both sail and get experience helping to look after a sail boat. We generally only sail in good conditions often taking advantage of weather windows at short notice.
Sailing mode is conservative, nature provides enough excitement. Some day sailing, some overnight and some trips to other ports for a few days or more. I broke Rule number 2 of sailing, Don't scare the wife... in my case twice, so most of the time wife and poodle meet us at destination ports. Rule number 1 being don't sink. You should be up to watch-keeping.
The boat is well maintained and been continuously upgraded. I do most of the maintenance and improvements. I have got a little carried away with the upgrading so is more complex than similar boats one of the reasons for longer term crew, to keep the learning curve to a minimum, and it's more fun with people you get to know.
