Looking for a boat to cross the Ocean
Posted 04 June 2017 - 09:20 AM
I'm Luca, an Italian guy who arrived in Shetland few days ago. I'd like to find a boat - sailing boat, cargo, fishing boat, whatever - to cross the Ocean to Norway or to Faer Oer Islands. It really doesn't matter the destination, but I don't want to take any airplane...
Coming back by ferry to Scotland'd be the last option of course.
I have been in the last days in the harbour and I've been talking with sailors and captains but they didn't seem so happy to welcome me on board. Even I have sailed a lot when I was child, I'm a bit shy in direct asking a lift on a boat... But I'll be going to the next days again in the harbour to see how it is.
Somebody has any kind of advices of suggestions?
Thank you very much!

They're are plenty of Norwegian yachts that come in during summer. You will just have to keep asking.

I agree with Muckle Joannie, I know people in the past who have got lifts on yachts and fishing boats.
