Thumbs up Atlantic Crossing - Any Chance ?

Hi all,

writing on behalf of my best mate Lane and myself Frances, we are two kiwi girls, 21 years old. Our dream is to learn to sail, preferably on a decent long distance voyage. From auckland we've been finding this pretty hard but soon we will be in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

I've heard a bit about people sailing between Brazil and France on the atlantic crossing, and it sounds like an incredible trip to make. Maybe something even to try by ourselves at one point but thats jumping ahead a fair bit.

We are fit, hardworking, fast learning and keen as anything. We have a good attitude and range of skills, not experienced sailors but good eager learners, willing to give anything a go.

English is our first language but Lane speaks Portuguese and I speak Spanish, we both hold NZ passports.

If you are planning to sail and you have room on your vessel for two awesome apprentices please get in touch.
