Atlantic crossing in May - June

Swan 51 "Eira" is crossing the Atlantic in a west-east direction. Go across in safety and style with this bullet proof Swan 51 and an experienced skipper.

You don't have to be Superman/woman but rather a teamplayer that appreciates a good challenge.

We are leaving st Maarten the 12 of May and do a stopover at the Azores. Final destination is Southampton.

"Eira" will later continue to Scandinavia with stopovers in Skagen, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Kiel, Bornholm, Visby, Stockholm, the Aaland Islands and finally Helsinki. You can also apply for any of these legs.

For more information: www.swan51eira.com or soc(at)swan51eira.c(0)m - lots of pics from previous journeys can be found at FB group swan51eira

Hope to hear from you!

Sebastian (skipper, Eira)

Re: Atlantic crossing in May - June

Hi,

I have about a year experience in the Caribeans islands on private motor yachts and references. I will be available at that time and I am looking to get more experience on sailing boats. I can cook without problems, I am in good shape and I have a valid Canadian passport. I am very interested by your itinerary and look forward earring from you…

Cheers!

Re: Atlantic crossing in May - June

Hi Sebastian,
I'm wondering if you'd be willing to consider me for this crossing? I'm a Canadian (with passport) with 4 years experience as an Emergency Nurse with all certificates and am also in medical school at the time. I'm on break from May 7th-June 2nd and would love to take part in this crossing (or part of it) if it's at all possible. I have limited sailing experience (lots of kayaking experience) but would love to learn. Please let me know if this would be possible.

Thanks,
Joshawa

Re: Atlantic crossing in May - June

Hello Sebastian,
I am a 21 year old university student looking to gain more experience aboard a sail vessel before I take my 200gt offshore practical in august. I have my ICC and have also completed the theory portion of the 200gt offshore license (VHF, Colregs, tides and currents, meteorology). I completed my first crossing this past fall on a 3 month trip from Rome, IT to Antigua, Caribbean. Please e mail with more information about your trip because it sounds perfect for me!

thanks so much,
Ralph

If you look at their website you find that it's paying crew position. 2500e across the pond.
