Hey there, I am a 22 years old student who wants to take a gap year during the academic year of 2021 and 2022. I would love to sail from Europe to the Carribean in November with the ARC. I have been sailing most of my life but I never sailed at sea before. So before I do an Atlantic crossing, I would like to gain some experience with sailing at sea. I am currently working on my International Certificate of Competence. I already completed the first part and I am currently studying for my exam for the second part. My bachelor's study is in English so I am bilingual. I have some experience in teaching kids how to sail and I am a scuba diver. For the ARC I am looking for a ship with a crew of at least 3 others because that feels safer as a female solo traveler.
