-----------------------------------------


Contributions are per trip/week per crew member. They includes accommodation, food, fuel,
satellites communications and marina fees, and of course a share for maintenance of the boat.

From 2000€ to 3500€ depending on which leg you choose.
--------------------------------------
For offshore legs, you ideally will have spent at least few nights at sea, and have experienced some strong or heavy weather conditions for a significant time.


-----------------------------------------
For coastal legs even few experienced sailors will be fine. 

Total crew will be 4-6 people for efficient and fast sailing and various training opportunities.


-----------------------------------------

We practise celestial navigation on the offshore long trips.

We go into every aspect of managing a boat and her crew when offshore over a long duration.

We go deep into sailing strategies.


We do many foresail changes, reefing, and fly spinnakers and gennaker, in order to sail the boat as well as we can.

We prefer not to embark heavy smokers, we do not drink any alcohol at sea, and there is obviously no drugs at all on board :)
