HUR DU SEGLAR MED OSS

Att ha payingcrew kan ha sina fördelar och ibland så finns det risk att det skär sig och sämsta valet är att ha betalande besättning med på resan som man då inte har träffat innan. Därför ska det märkas väl att jag i första hand väljer besättning som har seglat med mig förr, andra hand de som jag träffat men ännu inte seglat med FREEDOM och sista valet blir ju då personer som jag aldrig träffat.

Det sagt, så kan vi gå vidare att sprida lite ljus hur detta skulle gå till.. Och jag hoppas att med de översta öppningsorden inte har avskräckt dem som klickat sig fram så långt och varit sugna på en långresa med min båt. För den som vågar får se! Detta kan bli början på ditt LIVS äventyr.

SAILING WITH s/y FREEDOM?
I will below explain how payingcrew works and why this will be your bigges trip you ever do in your life. So take your time and read this trough. But beare in mind that I take first people I meet before and I must feel good vibes before I let a person sail with me for longer trips. Its not 100feet big the boat and there is moments when not just the wether will help you smie. Well, lets get into the text about Payingcrew and usefull reading.
 

HOW TO JOIN SOME OF THIS LEGS:

Concept of “Paying Crew”:
This is a different “low budget” way to have a sailing adventure. “Paying crew” means yachts taking crew on for a fee. They will be expected to stand watch and work on deck. Down below you will find links that gives you more detail information:

 

What we expect you to do on the boat and what your sailing knowledge has to be, I will explain for you here:l

 

Experience

  • You don’t need more knowledge about sailing as you have on driving a spacecraft. WE will give all newcomers- routine sailors or amateurs, a “half day” walkthrough the boat and get together with safety equipments. Then the rest of the day will go true sailing tec. and rescue-procedures.
  • After the first day you will be able to take sails up or down, witch rope to trim the sails. How to follow compass course and take out nautical distances. How to rescue a friend out of the water and how to use the radio.
  • In the end of your first week you can call your self a sailor and stay of late and dealing night-watch shifts are something you will do without a problem.

 

Expectations:

    • You will be part of the team- That means take turns up on deck or down below with normal day to day job.
    • Do food shopping. In the price the food is not included, therefore we use a money jar to make it equal what the shopping list will be.
    • Cooking and dishes once etch week, once or twice we eat out.
    • You clean your own clothes or team up with one. There are harbors that will provide that kind of service.
    • Help us clean the boat before you leave us for the next person that will take over.
    • Do night-watches, steering, mooring and help out to make it easier for us to make it to our destination.
    • Be on time! When we leaving the harbor, we have a time-schedule. We will be on the spot when you arrive to join our boat, and also we will be picking others up later. Therefore you have to listen what time on shore we give you.
    • You respect the judgment of the captain and listen to other team-mates, there are many wills and you have to respect them. We live tight and it can be frustrating some times.

BOOKING

There will be a booking program on this page later on.
You will find available dates and airport that is close to were ever you choose for country to start at. All your info will be put in that system and then sent to me.

Now however, we have to do it manually. So what I need from you to make it easier to fit you in our schedule, and most important one- If you can
