Oyez oyez :-) ! I love sailing and one of my dream bucket list is to cross the Atlantic and learn more about sailing in the sea. I would like to acquire a sailing boat for a future world tour. I found Arc Rally adventure through my research for sailing cross the Atlantic. I would like first to experience the sea with experienced sailors and crew. My native language is french. I am a former Swiss champion swimmer. I have been doing windsurfing since my young age. I held several boats like Corsaire on the lac Léman (Switzerland). Today I hold a motor boat Merry Fisher 795. I am an open minded person looking to meet the world of sailing adventure with good sharing spirit. I would love to find a crew to cross the Atlantic for the next Arc+ Rally taking place the 26th of October 2022 with a friend of mine. Please contact me if there is an opportunity to join your crew.
