FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY FOR A CERTIFED YACHTMASTER !
A once in a lifetime opportunity to join a lovely British couple of experienced sailors who are looking for a first mate to join the crew of a state of the art Oyster 625 (63 foot sailboat). You must be a qualified Yachtmaster and an ardent sailor with proven sailboat experience (specifically Oysters) as this is not for a novice given that you will be actively participating in the Rally. Anyone coming with mechanical engineering /electrics is a bonus. Excellent spoken English is a must.
The Oyster is currently moored at Hamble point Marina, Southampton and the plan is that you will join the boat to leave on or about the 10th October 2021 and sail to the Canaries (the exact date is subject to the weather). You will spend a few days on Cape Verde and cross the Atlantic planning on arriving in Grenada after about 2 weeks. Then the plan is that you spend the next few weeks preparing the sailboat for the Rally which leaves Antigua in the Carribbean on 10 January 2022 and travelling around the World ending in March 2023.
You will receive a contract for the duration of the trip and their will be a three month probationary period whilst on the boat.
You will need to provide a CV showing your sailing history along with all supporting documents.
