If you have time on your hands to take a year out to go sailing I am looking for a skipper and crew (ideally - but not exclusively - a couple) to crew a 53 ft fully equipped Oyster leaving in July 2023 from the UK to head to the Canaries to join the ARC 2023 in November across the Atlantic to St Lucia and then later the return journey. Stopping along the Atlantic coast on the way and then around the Caribbean will give time to explore and enjoy the trip. Occasional crew will fly out to join us along the way and also accompany us on the Arc crossing from Gran Canaria in November.
You need to have a lot of navigational and off shore/Blue water sailing experience. Boat expenses/mooring fees will be paid for but contribution towards food will be expected.
