Welcome to Mostly Sailing
The idea behind our company came from our group of sailing friends, with whom we have been taking out bareboat charters for cruising and racing since 2004. Over the years we have encountered various levels of service and quality of boats from different charter companies; and so we have come to believe that running our own boat can give us more flexible and affordable sailing, on a well-maintained boat over the entire sailing season. Our objective is to provide the best value for money sailing, rather than to profit from the sport.
Carol Lo, Mostly Sailing's skipper, is also able to provide skippering, crewing and boat delivery services for sailing yachts on a freelance basis. Having variously been charterer, boat owner, freelance skipper and crew (paying and otherwise) since 2001, Carol understands the expectations of her customers well.

Further general description
A fast 35-foot high performance sailing yacht, with a clean deck layout, and presentable saloon down below.
Starting at the bow, the forestay is fitted with a dual-luff foil with choker, corresponding with dual jib halyards, facilitating rapid jib changes. A fore-hatch allows convenient spinnaker drop storage and re-launch. Symmetric spinnaker gives stable deep downwind running, with the pole being gybed "end-to-end". Jib and spinnaker sheets are fitted with lightweight catches, to allow efficient connection to clews of the sails.
The mast area gives access to halyards, as well as the "A's" of the German main sheet system. Outhaul, vang/kicker, and jib inhaulers all led back to both sids of coach roof for access in the cockpit, allowing convenient and sensitive sail trimming.
The hull-to-deck joint is flush and rounded for comfortable hiking, with toe-rail forward of the mast for foredeck operations. The lower guardwire is fitted with padding, with height and tension set for optimal hiking.
The main sheet control in the cockpit includes a track spanning the width of the cockpit, immediately in front of the steering wheel. Harken B40.2STA winches main sheet trimming is combined with X-Yachts "Magic Wheel" backstay tension (1:45 as on IMX-40) for maximum main sail trim control.
The steering wheel has a diameter of 150cm, accessible from the rail, and gives responsive steering via a lightweight cable system.
Down below, there are 8 berths, chart table, galley, and heads. Main saloon table is removable and supplied with a padded cover. Engine is located under companionway, and is highly accessible from all sides as the cover (with the companionway steps) is removed.
