    how to sail a big wooden boat and the skills needed to make it work, I would love to learn Spanish and Italian , I would like to back to Scilla, love the place and the people, or we can eat out on occasion as there are lots of nice places to go to. Also there is on going art as this is one way of earning money to keep the boat going, in the summer time there are chances of sailing to the north coast of Brittany to the many festivals , winter time work we can do is under the control of the weather,

    On the boat there are 8 bunks were you would be sleeping, it's warm and dry, food is cooked on the boat each morning and evening this can be shared between the crew on board, if you have not been or stay on a boat, it's different from living in a house, all the space is shared , the only bit of privacy is in your bunk, there are no rooms as such. So please bear this in mind if you are thinking of coming,

    , we have had meny volunteers that have come, and have come back again , I am a working fisherman, in the winter I take big trawlers to sea for a week at a time, in the summer I am skipper of the sailing fishing boat, again I take out guest for a week sailing round the UK also to Franch Coast, I like painting and also teach art, so any workaway that comes are more than welcome to paint as we have a lot of materials on board, also I am interested in learning from them as well, there is a train station not far away, so you can look around Cornwall and it's spectacular coast line, if you love old boats the harbour has lots, also a lot of filming is done in this harbour, tv and big films so you never know you may end up in a film
