A message from James Craig, owner of the lovely yacht 'Mr Percival', with an offer for an adventure of a lifetime:
I am looking for adventurous crew to join me to help me take my yacht (a 68' Gulfstar named 'Mr Percival') from Melbourne, Australia (1 July 2016) to the Caribbean (December 2016). Looking for anyone interested in just doing part of the trip or the whole way.
The yacht sleeps eight (four berths), three bathrooms, very comfortable covered cockpit area (with clear blinds that roll up), Cutter rig, all hydraulic furling and winches - primarily operated from the helm, large kitchen, ample fridge and freezer space, large living areas. 215HP Turbo diesel, 1100L of fuel, 760L of water (plus water maker), two generators, bow thruster, walk off sugar scoop and 20HP inflatable RIB. You are welcome to inspect Mr Percival at the RMYS Marina.
I have 30 years' sailing experience on various yachts, and Yachtmaster offshore qualifications.
Typical arrangements are to share living costs - primarily food and regular household items, and various travel costs, for example if we decide to pull into a marina etc.
Please see the attached document for my expected time frames (both large overview and finer detail).
Please also see our Facebook page for a video overview and preliminary Passage Plan Details.
Please contact me if you would like more information about being part of this trip, and If you would like a PDF version of the passage plans in further detail.
