RYA Competent Crew




I'm looking for 1-2 crew who have at least some basic sailing skills, and who is easy going and willing to participate in everything (maneuvers, watches, cooking, etc). I'm looking for a contribution to running costs for the full crossing..
Please contact for details.

To present myself and my boat, I bought Draco, a 45foot deck saloon aluminium sailboat 3.5 years ago in France and my goal was to sail around the Americas. I'm now on the last bit of the journey after having already sailed with various friends and crew to Iceland, Greenland, the Northwestern passage, then with my fiancée the entire west coast of the Americas all the way to Cape Horn, Falklands and now that my fiancée is back to work, I'm now on my way back to Europe.
The boat is safe and very comfortable, fully equipped in terms of safety equipment, medical supplies, and withIiridium and Starlink I have a connection to land (it is not on constantly, only for weather forecasts, what's app, emails, etc).
