Looking to charter a Lagoon for atlantic crossing.

enablepassion.com

Hi! I am part of a team of 6 elite kitesurfers. We are are going to cross the atlantic ocean in a relay from the canary island to the caribbean. We are looking for a support yacht for the crossing to charter.

We need room for a minimum of 9 (6 kiteres, 3 production)

Please PM or contact me at camilla@urge.no

Re: Looking to charter a Lagoon for atlantic crossing.

An aside coment:
Have you taken into your planning the fact, that the speed of the yacht is considerably lower than the speed of the kite?
The kitesurfers would probaly need to wait for the yacht to catch up and the total crossing time will be according to the abilities of the yacht.

though from your website "quote"

.......Just got back from a chat with the guys from Meteo Consult to check how conditions will be during the time of the crossing. Apparently in December the storms will have moved well away from our route, hurricanes are nowhere to be seen and winds will average 5-6 Beaufort� News that puts a smile on the face of every surfer ) Wave conditions will be moderate with a maximum height of 5 meters. Can�t. Wait."

you might be quite dissapointed as these conditions f 5-6 are actually quite rare on an atlantic crossing,probably occuring 20% of the crossing,the average is more like f2-3 cheers alex
