[ active ] World ARC 2025 Saint Lucia to Saint Lucia ref 14593

wants 2 crew for Amelia, Jeanneau 54, m.

From Rodney Bay Marina, Saint Lucia to Rodney Bay Marina, Saint Lucia.

January 2025 to April 2026.

Hi. We are Jim and Heather, an easy-going couple that loves sailing. We are planning to sail around the world as part of the World ARC rally setting off from St Lucia in the Caribbean in January 2025 and returning in April 2026. We are looking for a couple or couples who share our passion for sailing and who would like to join us in our adventure to sail around the world. The plan is to have four people on board, including us, for each leg. This is an 18-month trip sailing around the world via the Caribbean, Columbia, Panama Canal, across the Pacific via the Galapagos Islands, Marquesas, Tuamotus and Society Islands, Bora Bora, Tonga, Fiji and onto Australia. We will cruise the Great Barrier Reef then onto Darwin and from there to Lombok in Indonesia, Christmas Island, Cocos, Mauritius, Reunion, Cape Town, Namibia, St Helena, Brazil, Grenada and then back to St Lucia. Our boat is a 54-foot Jeanneau monohull sailing yacht which is very well equipped and comfortable. We have both been sailing for over 10 years and have sailed our own boat from new in the Mediterranean for the last 5 years. Jim is a qualified naval navigator with ocean experience (Atlantic and Pacific) and an RYA qualified Coastal Skipper. Heather has 10 years sailing experience and RYA sailing and first aid qualifications.

What roles/experience are needed (Crew 1): does not matter

What roles/experience are needed (Crew 2): does not matter

Sailing with a Rally: World ARC

I'm looking for (gender): either

Cabins/Sleeping : own cabin-own bunk

Smoking on board: non-smokers only

Total people on board: 4

Crew roles: We are looking for young (or at least young at heart!), easy-going, fun-loving couples, non-smokers, to join us for legs or multiple legs of this adventure. Preferably you would have some useful or relevant experience sailing, watch-keeping, mechanical or electrical skills, and/or medical knowledge. You don’t need to be experts in anything but some sailing knowledge and experience would be preferred and you will need to be willing to muck in with jobs on a boat, take watches, cooking, maintenance, cleaning and be able to cope with confined spaces, potential sea sickness and being at sea for longer periods. You will need to pay for your own travel and expenses and make a contribution to food costs. Yacht costs and maintenance covered by the skipper. ARC crew fees to be discussed. If you’re interested and would like to find out more, please send us a message and we’ll get in touch.

Money: daily contribution from crew

Travel to and from boat: crew pays
