    Hi, I'm Peter and I'm 46 years young:-)

    Since five years I sailed my boat from Southern France to Gran Canaria and although the boat has been kept in shipshape condition and the heavy works on the dry yard have been done only a few months ago, it's getting time for some esthetic works on the deck and inside.
    This summer, I'll be sailing to Fuerteventura and Lanzarote so we take on this little tasks when we are on anchor in a beautifull bay or when we are in a marina.
    A few years ago, I had a posting on workaway for organizing sailing trips and renting out the boat as a boatbnb:) but this has stopped due to restrictions on short term renting in Las Palmas.

    So for now it's only little jobs but they can be still time consuming so I'd like a adventurous, social, fun and reliable person who's keen to learn boat maintenance (woodworks, painting) but also sailing skills because going out sailing is still my passion.:)
    If you like filming and editing videos, you might be the crew I'm looking for because I'd like to start a vlog!:)

    In exchange for some fun tasks, I offer great adventure!

    Late September and October, we'll do some more sailing in Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

    I've been sailing all over the world for the last 20 years as a professional skipper doing yacht deliveries and sailing charters and I think I'm a easy going, open minded person with a very adventurous spirit with respect for others people wishes and privacy. Last years, I've been organizing sailing trips with the hostels in Las Palmas but as I mentioned earlier, due to law restrictions, this has unfortunatly stopped.
    To have an idea, watch youtube ' amazing sailing trips in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with Peter'
    (I didn't give that title, a volunteer did!:)

    With Covid restrictions etc... it's not so easy anymore to get around so I might give priority to people who are already in Spain or the Canary Islands. In past times, I received avalanches of messages and it was not easy to answer everyone in person but this time I'll try to do my best:). Please, only make a request if you think you fit the criteria.

    The help I'd like to receive is mostly in the form of sanding and varnishing some wood inside and outside but also general boat maintenance or cooking a meal can help out!

  • Alojamiento


    You have your own double cabin (one of the three) on the boat. This is a nice and comfortable sailing yacht (Beneteau Oceanis 43ft) with 4 cabins and two 'bathrooms' and there's many people in the marina living in much smaller boats but note that living in a marina on a yacht is still a bit a floating camping:)

    The internet on board is in general good when we are in the harbour but when going out sailing, I share my data of my phone provider as a portable hotspot so we can work on tablet or computer
