Bringing my boat back to the UK in May 2019, we leave Portugal at the start of the May and I have crew for the leg to the Azores. I'm looking for one of two crew to join us in the Azores, there will be a minium of three, max four onboard, for the trip to the UK. The plan is to leave on or around 15/05 and call into Ireland before our return to Weymouth.
You'll need to be sea sure and happy to stand watch, in good weather I run a watch system during the night of 2 hours, 6 off, with four onboard, allowing everyone plenty of sleep.
You can fly direct from the UK (Stansted) to Ponta Delgada on Ryanair, also plenty of flights from Lisbon.
The cost of food is shared and you'll need to cover your own travelling cost. I've completed two Atlantic crossings in my boat, she is a fairly heavy boat at 19 tonnes and has a sea kindly motion, we are set up with hydrovane steering, AIS, Radar & Satelite Comms.
