RYA Competent Crew
Hi I'm looking for crew - Naestved in Denmark to Faro in Portugal. As of 10/01/2023 most crew slots are filled. That said, things change so please inquire up to the 10/03/2023.
Bird of Passage is a 57' / 17.4m wood/epoxy custom sailing vessel. A cruising sloop, it is easily sailed with a full length keel and two engines.
There are 3 cabins in total - 2 w/ bunks + 1 king-size couples cabin. 2 x heads, both with attached shower stalls, a well equipped kitchen, pilothouse and a cockpit with a flat rear deck giving a large area for relaxing at table.
The intent is to day-sail into the English Channel, via the Kiel Canal. After that there will be some night sails and watches to stand as we cross the Bay of Biscay.
Boat is made for world cruising and easy to sail short handed.
Although this is intended to be a relaxed and pleasurable cruise, there is a primary goal; To use the wind and tides to sail well and achieve a safe and timely passage to Portugal in less than 5 weeks.
