[ active ] ARC 2022 Canary Islands to Saint Lucia ref 13210

Sailing GB wants 6 crew for Kulu, Hanse 505, m.

From Gran Canaria , Canary Islands to Rodney Bay, Saint Lucia.

November 2022 to December 2022.

You will be joining a well appointed fast and safe competitive yet comfortable 50 foot modern performance cruising yacht in the RORC racing division of the ARC regatta race from Gran Canaria to St Lucia. The ARC is a ‘must do’ for many sailors, and attracts over 200 boats and 1200 people every year to sail 2700 NM across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to Rodney Bay in Saint Lucia. We will be racing to achieve a result, in the professional racing category, and the yacht has proven pedigree in offshore racing including some good results in the Round The Island race, Fastnet, and many RORC races. Whilst not a stripped out racer we are equipped with generator, fridge, freezer, aircon, very comfortable dry bunks with loads of space, comfort and a real luxury yacht feel. As well as good performance we think Kulu is the ideal yacht to compete in this monumental challenge across the Atlantic Ocean. The yacht will be professionally skippered by very experienced race skipper and first mate who are both veteran sailors including multiple Arc campaigns, Fastnet, Round Britain & Ireland Race, and many many RORC races under their belt . The yacht is based in the Solent in the UK and the package being offered includes some racing in the English Channel including St Malo RORC race in July.

Sailing GB is currently based in United Kingdom
