Transatlantic crossing - from Caribbean to Europe (Algarve, Portugal)

Hi to all members and welcome,

We are looking for competent crew to join us on the cruise from Martinique to Portugual(Portimao via Azores). This is an amaizing opportunity for those who need to gain miles or want to experience an ocean crossing.

The boat, a Beneteau Oceanis 473 clipper, is well maintained and equiped for ocean passage, with all safety and emergency requirements. The Yacht has been on land and safety inspected before departure. All comforts are here too.

Basic trip plan:

Martinique (Le Marin) Here we provision for the trip, continuing to Azores (Horta). In Azores we relax and explore as we wait for the right weather to reach the coast of Algarve in Portugal.

What we ask from you as crew:
* That you are transparent about your skillset - We need to have a good idea of the level of your skills for safety reasons.

* Confident and able to be on watch, including night shift.

* You will participate in the sail settings; understand basic navigation as well as caring for your own safety.
As said before, we are a team and will be sharing skills where needed – you will always be assisted during your shift by one of our skippers if needed.

Crossing the North Atlantic in January can be a rewarding experience but will never be the right place to be to learn the basics of navigation, so be sure of your knowledge and ability to handle this type of adventure.

We are flexible regarding dates and expecting you onboard, around 15 Jan +- a few days.

Phil & the crew
