Bahamas Azores France - 39 feet Sailing Boat

Hello !

Like last year, we organize a crossing of the Atlantic back to Europe, from the Bahamas to the Azores to Marseille (France) onboard a fully equipped sailing boat Dufour 385 with a very experienced skipper (6 transatlantic s) speaking fluently English & French
  • May 3 to May 29, 2016 - Bahamas (Nassau) - Azores (Horta)
  • May 29 to June 21, 2016 - Azores (Horta) France (Marseille)

Crew can participate to either of both legs.

The sailing boat Dufour 385 is already sailing in the Bahamas, has 3 double cabins, and is fully equipped: autopilot, solar panels, satellite telephone and EPIRB beacon.

The crew on board consists of our very experienced (and fun!) skipper as well as 2 to 4 crew members. Crew members are required prior sailing experience and to be willing to participate to all tasks onboard.

Leaving Nassau, Bahamas, after the last days of preparation and extensive groceries, you'll head directly to Horta in the Azores. Arrival subject to weather expected for May 29.

A one week "break" is foreseen in the Azores. Then you'll set sail to Gibraltar Detroit, mythical entry point of the Mediterranean Sea. Depending on weather, stops can be planned in Cadiz, Malada or Barcelona, before reaching Marseille between 18th and 21st of June.

Participation to the boat expenses (fuel & berthing), skipper costs as well as insurance is set as follows:
$ 300 for May 3 to May 29, 2016 - Bahamas (Nassau) - Azores (Horta)
$ 350 for May 29 to June 21, 2016 - Azores (Horta) France (Marseille)
- $ 200 discount for the ones participating to both legs

Daily food expenses expected around ~$10 per day
If you have interest, don't hesitate to reach out to us,

Thanks & enjoy your sailing

Miguel
