Hi, I am keen to join a team as crew member for the ARC 2020 from Gran Canaria to St Lucia. This for me would mean completing an old dream : cross the Atlantic. It would be my first ocean sail, but I've sailed a fair bit along and between UK coasts. I'm in my early 40s, and have a bit of time to look into this now. I have been sailing for about 20 years, mostly in the UK (the Solent and the West Coast of Scotland), regularly for several seasons, less regularly other years. Mostly on 36 foot mono-hulls. Always as crew. I would love to join either a cruising team or a racing team. I did more racing than cruising over the last decade, which I enjoy because it keeps us on our toes, but I'm also happy to cruise across. I've recently been through a First Aid training again and trying to do a bit of reading (and training) ahead of November. (will write a little more later on...)
