Looking for UK based sailing crew...

May 1, 2018
Current Location
Essex, UK
Well i'm nearly 19 so on to the next chapter in my life... traveled inland UK by push bike and motorcycle, cycled 350 miles around Germany in a week, came back to the UK and moved into a caravan for a while, sold that and now i'm in the process of finishing off my 22ft Macwester Rowan sailing boat...

Looking for crew leaving Essex within the next 4-6 weeks. The boats a 4 berth and i'd like to fill it with interesting people and go on some interesting adventures. Not sure quite what the plan is yet, but I have some ideas. Basically looking to do a shakedown trip either to Scotland or South Wales before setting off for the med this summer.

Experience not required, I don't have the greatest amount myself but i've done some coastal sailing before with my old boat. Wanting to split costs of everything on the boat evenly between everyone onboard at the time.

Loads of safety equipment on board, life jackets, harnesses, throw rings, flares, ditch kit, loads of medical supplies, tools, spare engine, etc, hopefully most things needed to dodge a sticky situation. Full solar setup for lighting, charging phones/tablets etc. Petrol genny. Just been to pick up a 9.9hp Yamaha outboard. I hesitate to say she's a pretty well prepared boat and has proven herself in the past many a time.

Just finishing up work now, head lining, some interior paint, cleaning, more cleaning, electrics completely rewired, fitting gas heaters, etc etc...

Pets welcome (providing they don't eat my kittens), don't have an issue with the odd drink or doob providing you're not a twat, hey, what are you waiting for? Drop me a message and we can arrange something!

A digi-nomad's life for me?

Amtrak crew change. Hiding from the bull
Got a new bicycle today! I feel so much better
Hitched from Ft. Collins, CO to Laramie, WY in three rides and an hour and a half. Today’s a good day.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]
The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
