    Hi, I’m Simon, from New Zealand.
    last year I bought a sailboat in the UK and from Now (13 sep)will be spending the summer taking the boat south and enjoying all the little ports as I go. Currently near Faro on sth coast of Portugal.

    Ive had about 10 people crew with me so far and its worked out pretty well . Its pretty new experience being on a yacht for possibly the first time, especially if its doing longer passages, so deffinetly helps if you enjoy camping -outdoor life and have done some travelling before, but no sailing experience required... but it helps.

    Im a professional skipper, and have been working at sea for about 15 years, but this boat is just for fun, a good excuse to be in Eruope for me.

    I can have 1-2 crew onboard, but no couples thanks.

    Ive done alot of travelling, and am pretty relaxed. We dont work to hard. we do take turns cooking. I like to go ashore alot too, will be no voyages longer than 20 hrs at sea. usually anchor at nite or marinas. If we go ashore at nite to eat, then we pay our own food.. otherwise we can eat on boat...we work about 15 hrs a week steering boat, and helping out with things, but we pay half each of the supermarket food bill, it’s about 5 euros per day(Portugal is cheap..)

    let me know if this sounds like you.
    will be sailing from Aug till Dec, from libon to the Med (Spain) more or less. but maybe a side trip to moroco on the way
