Hi sailors,

We have a spare berth aboard the Nuthin Wong if anyone is interested in a westbound Atlantic crossing right now!! The boat is a 54 foot steel Chinese junk, pretty basic compared to 'normal' sailing yachts, but very strong and happy sailing in stormy conditions. Being aboard is an incredibly special and unique experience.

We are in Madeira and plan to head west towards the Bahamas (maybe Cuba). The Wong is then going to Miami and New York before returning to Canada. The boat is a non-profit sail training vessel on which the captain has been teaching and taking backpackers for over 20 years. Everyone is very free on the boat, we have a fantastic crew of 5 so far and the watches are 2 people, 6 hours on, 12 hours off.

We have no internet access so if you recognise this is an opportunity not to be missed, phone Clive on 351 911 83 44 55 or email chinesejunk1@hotmail.com. Also, you might like to check out the blog to see what we´re about: nuthin-wong.blogspot.com

Happy sailing :-)
