I am looking for crew.

Boat size & type: Lagoon 420 Diesel Sailing Catamaran

Embark port: Les Sables d'Olonne Vendée France

Estimated departure (or join) date: 10th Dec

Arrival port & ETA (or voyage details): Bahamas 15 Jan 2009

Number of other crew aboard: Skipper plus one.

Crew qualifications required and duties: Competent crew for watch and sailing duties, cooking to roster and some navigation if interested

Cost to join vessel and repatriation and visa costs are paid by: Crew member

Estimated equal-share contribution to food/drinks: (Per person, per day) = $US. nil while on board, crew members expense while on shore

Note: No contribution towards any other costs (fuel, propane, fees, marinas, etc.) is required from crew.

More details:

The yacht is a Lagoon 420 deisel with the additional Gennaker and is well equipped for blue water cruising (watermaker, Radar, SSB & Modem for email and weather) and it is a comfortable cruiser. Karen and I have spent the last 12months on it in Europe and the Canaries.

We are an easy going Australian couple but with the limit of our sailing being what I have said above about 1800 NM.

Our passage plan is to head out of Biscay, assess meteo and fuel and decide weather to stop in Cascais or head directly to Madiera for a refuel and to spend a day in Porto Santo then onto Gran Canaria for reprovisioning and refuel. We would probably spend 3 or so days here before heading across - all this is obviously weather dependent.

We are normally alcohol free at sea, but on this long passage, a civilized drink with dinner sounds sane. A contribution to drinks on board would be appreciated. The boat is smoke free except for the leeward transom.

If you want to get a better idea of who we are see http://blog.whereii.com.

If you are interested in this passage please contact us as soon as possible so we can talk more.

Just in case people are not familiar with the 420, we have the owners version and each cabin has it´s own shower and head, so as a crew cabin it is not so shabby

Hi again, Karen and I did some more planning after talking to a few friends that have done the trip and the destination is now Barbados, not the Bahamas as in the post.

Cheers Matt

Hi Folks on your Catamaran! What an excellent post !!! I am sure you will find the appropriate crew with the detail you have provided - just make sure that whoever you choose, matches your own personalities and the role that you have set for them.

Hi karen,

my husband and I are looking for a crew positions on an Atlantic crossing this december. We're both english and professional chefs with a lot of enthusiasm. We're in Lagos, Portugal at the moment but can travel to where the boat leaves from. We're doing a competant crew course this coming week so will have certificates and a weeks experience of being out at sea. We'll therefore be out of email contact until next saturday.

We hope to hear back from you!

Best wishes,
