Need to be in Slovenia by April 15th - 16th for truck loading. Boat arrives in Kiel Germany 4 days later. Unfortunately I cant ride with truck follow cars. They have 8 hour shifts at night. No day driving. In Kiel need to unload remast and tweak. Then ready for leg 2 to Stockholm. I plan to spend a few days in Venice then train or pane to Kiel. Hamburg airport is nearest if you plan to do that leg.
Speed plan. We have 1100 sea miles for first leg. Its a fast boat and plan to hold 6 + knots average if bad winds we will motor, if over 20 will consider minimum sail and motor. You get the idea, good speed but comfort and safety is my main goal.
Its supposed to be fun not scarry. Especialy at night.
Most important is an easy going personality, skill level is not that big of a deal.
