Curlew is my home and my transport. She is just the right size to be very seaworthy and still easily handled. She’s pretty easy to sail and very fast. I like speed as the miles get eaten up leading to a quicker and ultimately safer passage (and it’s fun!) There are 2 cabins on Curlew, a decent galley and large nav table. She is not overly encumbered with modern electronics and is run with a “keep it simple, stupid” attitude. I can fix anything on board and am equipped with everything for self sufficient cruising.
is looking for crew for Cruising, Ocean / long distance
from 20 Sep 2018
Hi, I’m looking for crew to join me on an Atlantic circuit. UK – Algarve, Portugal – Canaries – West Africa – Caribbean.
Curlew is easy to sail and can be handled by 1 competent person at most times. 2 if less experienced or the goings tough. Would be great to have crew who can steer to the compass and also a decent course on a given point of sail (best to windward, downwind without gybing) However, this stuff is not rocket science and, if you’re less experienced, can be taught. If you are less experienced would be a bonus if you’re an awesome cook! I like chilled out, friendly, happy go lucky people who have a sense of adventure. Musicians or rock climbers are extra welcome ;)
