Wight Dawn, Largs, Ayrshire
Looking for 1 or 2 crew to come sail with me & my springer spaniel, Archie. We are leaving Largs around the 30th May and our destination is the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. The route will take 7 to 10 days and will be flexible to accommodate the weather. Ideally we will be stopping off at several Hebridean islands along the way.
You will be expected to make your own way to the boat and also make your own travel arrangements to get back from the Isle of Lewis. Crew will also contribute to the costs of the food and drink. You should also have you own full wet gear. I will cover costs of any pontoon fees, diesel etc. If you wish to spend a few days exploring the Outer Hebrides, I am happy to provide you with free accommodation.
The Return Trip:
I will also be sailing back from the Isle of Lewis around the 22nd June, heading back to Largs. Time wise this could be more flexible and the same arrangements above would apply.
My boat, Wight Dawn, is a 32’ Westerly Renown. She is a ketch, with central cockpit and separate aft cabin. With a coach house and attached doghouse, she has plenty of headroom. I have recently refurbished her with new engine, and new electronics. By time of sailing there will be a new electric windlass and hydraulic autopilot as her wheel steering is also hydraulic. As a ketch she doesn’t point as well to the wind as a sloop but with an extra mizzen mast, the extra sail provides more sail options. She is also a sturdy boat for heavier seas.
Me and Archie are easy going and very much looking forward to sharing these trips with lovely people. All that we ask is you are enthusiastic and also easy going….also not being allergic to dogs would be a huge advantage ????
