I'm hoping to find a way to join a crew to cross the Atlantic (west to east) this coming Spring so that I can meet up with my parents. My dad received a Fullbright teaching scholarship that has him in Egypt
for the year, and in addition to really wanting to see my parents, I really don't want to pass up on a free place to crash in Egypt
My understanding is that the ARC
happens in May, and so most boats won't be getting there until early/mid June, which is when my parents leave. Ideally, I'd be looking to head
over sometime between the beginning of March (when my seasonal job ends) and early April. Is this at all realistic? Is there a reason most boats leave later in the Spring? Seasonal winds or something?
