Les Sables d'Olons to La Rochelle End September 2011

My partner Jon will need to take our 12 metre Moody from Les Sables d'Olons to La Rochelle for the winter. We are booked in to arrive on the 1st October this year. He may possibly need help as I have to go back to the UK for several weeks in mid September and will not be able to help him. He has his RYA Day Skipper Practical which he passed four years ago and we have had about three years' experience sailing together as well as the experience of crossing the Channel in May this year and making our way down to the Villaine where we are at the moment. We will be leaving the Villaine at the beginning of September and making our way down to Les Sables d'Olons and expect to get there around the 8th/9th September.

He will probably need someone to help him get to La Rochelle. We would like someone experienced - just the one extra crew probably.

If you are interested in crewing for Jon or know anyone else who could, please could you let us know via this thread.

Thanks,

Louise

Louise,
I don't understand why you can't sail with your partner from Les Sables d'Olonne to La Rochelle: the distance is 36 NM, it should last only one day.

Hi Guys,
Have recently done this trip myself as crew, 410 Lagoon took delivery Cat. in Les Sables, I am now sitting in London twiddling thumbs whilst my Aust. friends sort out visas before rejoining. Happy to spend a few days with you in between, I am retired but active.

Thanks everyone for your replies and offers of help. Jon may be able to do the trip himself but we will get back to you if he decides he wants help. I would love to go myself as originally planned but have to go back to the UK temporarily for medical reasons.

Cheers,

Louise
