Re: Guadeloupe to Ireland

Hi There Matt
Thanks for coming back to us. To give you a few facts - The trip is safe delivery of the Cypraea from Point a Pitre to Bantry Bay, basic meals are provided on board en route. You buy your own treats for enjoying on the journey. No alcohol allowed on board, no smoking.You will be standing night and day watches, participating in any repairs and maintenance needed along the way and sharing the daily cleaning and cooking chores of life on board as a team.
Cypraea, the yacht, is in Guadaloupe and we plan to leave about 14th April and will arrive in Bantry Bay, Ireland mid to end of May.
Your travel expenses to the boat and return from Ireland are paid for by yourself, as we cannot afford to pay them. Airport in Guadaloupe is Point a Pitre, and nearest airport to our village in Ireland is Cork, for USA flights you can look at Shannon or Dublin, or check out London flights as they may be cheaper. That's the deal. Cypraea is a big powerful sailing boat that needs to be sailed with strong hands and with care, you will enjoy your adventure if you choose to join us. It will salty, tiring and tough at times. Starting hot, hot, hot and becoming cold as you travel into northern Atlantic, so good waterproofs and thermals are essential.
Interested? Tell me more about you.
