2019 ARC on Lagoon 42

Hi all

We are doing the ARC this year on our brand new Lagoon 42 and are starting to look for potential crew for the trip.

We will be leaving Southampton early October and have 7 weeks to cruise down to the Canaries.... then the ARC across to St Lucia

At the moment we are just looking to see who would be interested in joining us on any parts of the journey.

We are a couple in our 50's, easy going and good company.

You should have at least some sailing experience and be capable of doing watches on your own.

There are no fees involved, but we will expect contributions towards food, ARC costs and harbour fees.

Paul & Tracey

Re: 2019 ARC on Lagoon 42

Hi!

Im contacting you about your post on Cruisersforum regarding crew for the ARC 2019. My name is Viktor, 28 yo from Stockholm, Sweden. Me and my friend Dag, also 28 yo from Stockholm are interested in doing a trip across the Atlantic and thought wed drop you a line.

Both of us have a bit of sailing experience, mainly from the Stockholm archipelago and a growing sailing interest. We have been talking about doing a trip like this for years, and more intensely after a friend of ours sailed the Atlantic back in 2015.

Im based in Amsterdam where I work as marketing manager for an e-commerce company. Dag lives in Copenhagen and is an associate at a law firm in Malm. Wed be very interested to join you on this trip and would be happy to jump on a call and tell you more about ourselves!

Please let us know if youre still looking for crew members and think wed be suitable!

Best regards,

Viktor Hk & Dag Eresund

Re: 2019 ARC on Lagoon 42

Hi Viktor and thanks for your interest.

Our boat only has 3 cabins and we already have a guy with lots of experience who wants to join us. This means we now only have one cabin spare, so it would not be practical to have 2 more guys on the crossing.

We will be sailing from Southampton down to the Canaries stating atthe beginning of October and we are still looking for crew who would like to do a week or two with us on this part of the journey.

We intend to take our time and visit various places on the way .. this part of the trip will be 6 weeks in total

many thanks

Paul

Re: 2019 ARC on Lagoon 42

Hi there

We have had quite a lot of interest from people in the States for this trip. The problem is that we will be in Southampton during June and July meeting various people who are interested. Obviously we need to make sure we are going to get along as we will be spending quite some time on the boat with strangers. This makes it difficult for you guys from across the pond as you can't call in to meet us without serious expense and time.

Re: 2019 ARC on Lagoon 42

I am a 62 y/o retired MD and have been sailing since I was 8 or 9. I have ASA Certificates from 101-114 and have a US Coast Guard Unrestricted Master Captains License for vessels up to 50 tons. I am very familiar with Lagoons as this past year I conducted the sea trial on Sea Wings, a Lagoon 450F then provisioned and captained her from Santa Barbara California to La Paz, Mexico during the 2018 Baja Haha. I am also very familiar with St Lucia as I just spent 2 weeks down there exploring several of her bays and helped a friend sail Setaphina, his 50 Gran Soleil from Martinique to Rodney Bay, the finish line for ARC.
I will be on your side of the pond in May and June for a 3 week road trip through Italy with my girlfriend.
