When & where: Planning to leave harbor at the Canary Islands November 20. Will reach land by December 20 the latest, preferably St. Lucia. So please reserve four weeks for your journey (+ we strongly recommend you to spend a few weeks exploring the Caribbean islands when you are there).

Who are we? A fully trained Norwegian/English crew of three, with world wide navigation certificate and experience in ocean crossing. Our vessel is a 50 foot Benneteau with four double cabins, each with a bathroom/toilet, equipped with all safety equipment and instruments for long journeys. Also satellite phone for necessary communication.

Who are you? A possible globe trotter with interest for the sea. No sailing or navigational skills required. Couples or close friends are preferred, age 30+. We hope this will create a good social climate for the journey

Crew join in on a shared-cost basis. Crew bring their personal gear and cost their one-way ticket. We prepare the boat, get all the supplies and prepare 3 daily meals, as long as weather conditions allows. You will receive full training during the voyage.

If you are interested, please let us know!
Email: skip(a)rainbowlady.no or send a SMS to +47 95972035
PS:
Due to bad weather, we need more time to pass Biscaya and Spain/Portugal (no surprise...). We will not reach the Canaries in time to do a crossing before Christmas. New departure date: early January 2010.
Still interested, let us know!
