Hi, I’m doing the ARC and ARC Pacific delivering my AMEL 50 to Australia. I’ve been sailing for over 20 years although mostly club racing and little cruising. Since picking up Indulgent in April 2022, I’ve sailed her from La Rochelle to the Channel Islands and then back to the Mediterranean. We are now in the Canaries and awaiting the commencement of the ARC and an opportunity to crew has become available due to one of our crew not being able to make the leg. At this stage I’m looking for someone to assist with the Atlantic crossing, although this might extend beyond that point if things work out well.
