ANNA is a well-maintained Hallberg-Rassy 41; a proven ocean going type of boat.
I am male, Swedish, 54 and am now cruising full-time after having worked many years internationally. Open-minded, adventurous and curious.

For the 2019 season, I plan to sail Sweden-Ireland and back. Start mid-May, end mid-August.
I am looking for 1-2 persons (sex&age unimportant as long as you are fit&responsible), who would like to join for Höganäs-Inverness as well as Dublin-Cowes-Amsterdam-Höganäs.
You share in food/drink cost and running boat expenses (fuel, marina fees etc); usually it all comes to about EUR 25 per person per day.
You also share equally in work (watches, cooking, cleaning etc).

Sailing experience / attitude required; 
 - you can stand watch alone, also at night
 - you understand that when alone on watch, you can't do your duty properly if wearing headphones, sleeping etc
 - you have proper clothes, incl raingear, as well as shoes/boots, all fit for purpose

A little about sailing with me:
My preference is sailing over motoring, meaning that the plan is a plan and not an absolute goal - being becalmed for a day at sea is 'fine' and does
not require the engine to be started.
The boat has solar panels, but sailing in the northern latitudes for several days at a time, electricity is limited, wherefore running autopilot etc
may not be possible.

Visit to learn more about the boat. You can also find several short videos of the boat on youtube; search "Hallberg-Rassy 41"
