Hi,

I'm on the lookout for crewing opportunities to cross the Atlantic and am looking for suggestions of ports in Spain/Portugal/Canary Islands etc. where boats would embark for for this sort of voyage.

Does anyone have any suggestions on which ports/marinas would be good ones to visit, or any other advice on how I might best find a ride?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Jens

Go Google the ARC run by World Cruising - it departs Las Palmas Canaries mid November to St Lucia mid December. They have a web site with crew lists.

Or you could lob into Las Palmas and walk the jetties asking around - lots do take crew in last weeks as they get let down by others.

Good luck

JOHN
