The Future

We have some exciting news. Mat has just come into a life changing inheritance which has rightly made him question what he is doing sailing around on ‘the old man’s’ boat.

Mat has decided to move on to an exciting new venture of his own, more of which will become know in due course. I think he is making absolutely the right decision despite the fact that it leaves me crew-less.

I still have my heart set on taking Last Vintage to the Mediterranean beginning the voyage later this year.


I need to find a new travelling companion.

In a sentence, someone who would be prepared to take time out from their current lives to have an adventure. To experience something most only dream about.

How long? you ask. Well I don’t know, but two or three years is my best guess. While I have no fixed plans I do want to spend a couple of months in Asia doing some re-fitting work on the way from Australia to the Med via the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal. Once there I intend to spend three or four years exploring the Aegean, Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, Ionian and all the other seas in the area.

Who and what am I looking for? If you answer yes to most of the following dot points then it is most likely you!

  • Single & independent. Male or female
  • Likes the sea and sailing
  • Fit & healthy
  • Practical and inventive
  • Calm in a crisis
  • Flexible and patient
  • Able to read and understand manuals
  • Able to contribute to some of the voyage costs
  • Willing and able to undertake all sorts of maintenance and repairs
  • Must have a valid passport
  • Non smoker
