Hi! I am registering for myself but also my husband and son. We are all keen sailors, however husband Stephen and son Ollie would dearly love to do the Arc this year if possible so I am registering so that I can search a boat for them. We live in Guildford in Surrey, we also have 10 year old Honey and 16 year old Joseph, 2 dogs and a cat. so someone needs to stay home and take care of them! Steve and Ollie are adventurous and fun, but take safety seriously onboard, they can both cook, wash up and clean and are non smoking hygienic men! Both have day skipper (sailing and power boat) plus RYA helmsman, RYA VHF and various dinghy sailing certificates. We have owned and sailed various sail boats (mono and cats) in Europe and Caribbean, plus a power boat in the UK.
