  • Description


    I'm a 61year old sailor which been sailing for the past 4 years in the Caribbean sea. . Basically, doing Island hopping. No charter, only persons that enjoy sailing life on board.

    Exploring and diving are the main activity on the boat. I have a compressor to fill my tanks. So if you dive, this is a big plus. Exploring can be searching for shade on hot days, looking for shells on the beach or meeting people.
    Don’t have a lot of nautical miles ( around 3000nm) but do feel at ease on the sea, I will wait for the weather window to have an easy sail. So i don't have a specific agenda

    I've just arrive in the Bay Island area (Utila,Roatan, Guanaja) . Will be cruising this area and heading to the Rio Dulce for the hurricane season (September). I'm looking for a crewmate to make some short passages (Utila-rio Dulce or Utila-Belize) and enjoy the cruising. To embark around mid-april
