Default USA to Europe in May

-------------------------- TRANSAT --------------------------------
G'day all!

We're looking for one person to join us for a transatlantic. Leaving from USA E. coast (Jacksonville, Florida) sometime shortly after 9th May and sailing for Azores, then England and onwards to Sweden.

If you can fly in to Jacksonville airport afternoon of the 8th I can pick you up.

---------------------------- V I S A S n' R E G S. ---------------------
USA requires yacht crew arriving by boat to have B1/B2 U.S. visa (to get one it's about USD148) and a visit to the U.S. embassy... the process requires about 1 month.

For entering the country with a flight most nationals can use ESTA and the Visa Waiver Programme, and remain in the US for 3 months, but a prerequisite for qualifying for the VWP is to have a ticket out of the country. If then leaving by yacht that ticket can be cancelled.

If you are a U.S. citizen then just be aware that you need a visa if you plan to stay in the european union for longer than 3 months.

----------------------------- U S n' the B O A T ----------------------
("The Boat" is one 39-foot trimaran of 1976, designed by Kelsal and built in the U.K for the 1976 OSTAR race. Allbeit a fast boat of her time, we only reckon on 150nm daily runs... safe and steady out there on the open Atlantic)

("we"/"us" is the owner in his mid-20s. He's got 8 transats. & about 70.000nm sailed and is yachtmaster certified, then there's two more young people already joined. So we need one more person!

---------------------------- T H E S A I L I N G -------------------
A minimum of 6 weeks you will have to set aside for this trip. Because more than 3700nm of ocean have to be covered!

Shared expenses deal onboard - but don't worry; there's plenty of fish in the N Atlantic for us to catch.

The boat has no autopilot so if we are 3 onboard we cycle steering 1.5h on and then 3h off the whole way.... so if you're O.K with that then:
vegan, vegetarian no probs. smokers no probs. lousy sailors no probs.
Interested? Questions? Get in touch and well sort it out from there.
