Boat is a 50ft cruiser, very comfortable easy to sail adventurer. I’ve been on board for a long time and know the boat well. She’s well maintained. Setup for long term cruising. Watermaker etc. We are heading to the states for a mini refit to sort out some bits and pieces.

Cabins become available from the 22nd of April. There’s a plan to meet up with some other cruisers at the end of the month and take part in an informal weekend of “pursuit racing.”

Around the 8th of May we plan to sail from the BVIs to Florida with an expected passage time of 10 days. Extendable to 2 weeks if we stop in the Bahamas or Puerto Rico. Looking for experienced crew only.
