Hi Tony
Yes I still have space.
I also have notices up at several marina's in and around Gibraltar and have had several enquiries but nothing firm.
Experience ( this will be my 9th east to west crossing) has shown that although lots of people are interested the reality is often they can't make it for various reasons or simply are not compatible. Cost will depend upon precise number of crew but in 2011 we had 4 crew in total and cost was about €400 each. You will get a few days in Antigua then I start my winter charter program. Note you will also have to pay your own flights.
Please let me have a brief resume ...to staitscrew@ yahoo.co.uk
