Christopher White wants 4 crew for Salamander, Nauticat 521, 18m.

From Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten to Lagos, Portugal.

May 2024 to June 2024.

Sailing across an ocean is sometimes described as the opportunity of a lifetime ... a bucket list event. We have already sailed round the world on board Salamander and this will be our 15th Atlantic crossing, 8th with the ARC, where we are a regular and well known participant with ARC 2017, ARC 2018, ARC 2019, ARC 2021, ARC 2022, ARC 2023 and ARC Europe 2019, ARC Europe 2022, winning 1st in Class 2021 and the ARCH MAREZ TROPHY in 2023. on passage from the Sint Maarten in the Caribbean to Lagos, Portugal via Bermuda and the wonderful Azores. Bermuda is a colourful must-see destination. The Azores Islands Cruise is an opportunity to visit some of the unique and very different volcanic islands which might include Faial, Pico, Terceria and Sao Miguel. Experience overnight passages, watch-keeping, boat handling, sail trim, navigation, VHF, AIS, Radar, provisioning, boat systems, passage planning and weather forecasting by Iridium satellite. Great confidence builders for sailors and non-sailors with all levels of experience including boat owners and partners who have yet to try off-shore sailing and are maybe thinking about or preparing for their own future sailing adventure to far off lands. Experience living on board an authentic ocean-going Round the World yacht. Enjoy your own berth in a shared cabin. Use the passage for mile building, essential for anyone working towards their RYA Yachtmaster Coastal or Offshore qualifications. Sextant on board for anyone wishing to take some sights for RYA Yachtmaster Ocean qualifications.

Christopher is currently based in Lymington, United Kingdom
