Hi, we're two people (male and female, not a couple but can share a cabin) looking to gain some experience off-shore. We are both Portuguese and currently living in Zurich so our experience is mostly sailing in the inner lakes of Switzerland. I have a RYA Day Skipper license and Joana has an RYA Competent Crew license (and is an excellent cook). Other than the inner lakes we've once chartered a boat in Poros Greece so we have some experience on costal sailing. This summer 2022 we would like to join the ARC Europe as a crew from Azores to Portugal/UK. We're planning to fly to the Azores in mid March to explore the islands so we could also join you on arrival.
