Profile Information

I am a
Yacht/boat owner
Name/number of boat
Strikhedonia a blue water cruising catamaran that is outfitted for offshore sailing. Very comfortable and spacious with a large galley, three queen berths, and one double berth. There are two showers, one being a large separate glass enclosed shower. The salon has a retractable TV and Bose stereo for impromptu dance parties.

To get an idea of my boat and what it is like to be on board your can check out my blog. A small contribution of $100 per week aboard is required. You must also have return airfare and we will share equally in food costs. As far as workload, this is not a charter operation so everyone will be expected to pitch in with cooking, cleaning, and general maintenance (over a week this might be 3-4 hours). See my blog post of crewing here:

A bonus is someone who likes to add adventure to their life. Whether that is rock climbing, live music, enjoying a great meal, kayaking, diving, sailing...I am always up for any fun activity and hanging out with cool people.

Hi Chris, I just realised that you are on the Pacific side. I will certainly to sail in Cortez Sea. Sorry for my mistake. I hope this is still an option.

If you have used Float Plan to find a boat or a crew member, or had a good experience using the website, being part of the community or you just love what we are trying to do (make sailing accessible to everyone), I would really appreciate a quick note that I could use as a testimonial on the new website. Thank you, Andrew
