Crew Members for Sailing Trip

Mykonos-beach-2 Mykonos-beach-1

What better way to see the beauty of the islands than from a 42 sailboat with a crew of diverse natures and backgrounds. If this does not turn out to be the first in a series of sailing trips for this crew, I will be very surprised.

Hopefully the crew will all post a brief profile of themselves to set the scene, but prior to that I am going to run through the crew list with their crew names:

Lets start with communications officer and signalman Prady. The technofreak of the crew, he will be the guy who’s documentary of the trip will run on National Geographic for years, and make us all rich from the royalties.



Steph-NettlThen there is Steph. He is armorer and gun master. If there is so much as a whisper of pirate activity on our route, our vessel will become as fearsome as Blackbeards frigate. I personally will be below decks chowing down on Bo’s cooking, but the rest of you will be staunch defenders of our flag under Steph’s direction.



Bo-SorrentinoBo (threefingers) Sorrentino, of the Scicilian Sorrentinos, will be chief cook. Let me tell you, nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can heat up a McDonalds Big Mac like this man. Two weeks of culinary heaven for my intrepid voyagers. Don’t forget the Ketchup Bo.



mario Mario will be taking two weeks off from singing in the church choir to keep the crew entertained, and to welcome any visitors on board. (paying visitors only Mario) He is the Ever Ready power source for the more senior crew member, he will keep me on my toes until I can party no more.



Chris-Gerrard Finally, there is Chris. A man of many talents, we just don’t know what they are!! Chris has been designated as our boatswain. The reason being nobody knows what a boatswain is, so he has free rein.




A motley crew to be sure, but one that will write history!!

Peter Roberts,

    Oh, “boatswain” is not what I was thinking.

    It’s, “A boatswain (/ˈboʊsən/, formerly and dialectally also /ˈboʊtsweɪn/), bo’s'n, bos’n, or bosun, is the senior crewman of the deck department and is responsible for the components of a ship’s hull. The boatswain supervises the other members of the ship’s deck department, and typically is not a watchstander, except on vessels with small crews. Other duties vary depending on the type of ship, her crewing, and other factors.”

    Blame Wikipedia –

    Just like to point out to Chris that two “components of the ship’s hull” are the holding tanks, and they need to be emptied regularly. (I assume you all know what they are holding!!!
