March 2012 Vol.1 Issue 7 – Casamara
Casamara need Crew
Many of you will be familiar with Casamara, the Discovery 55 that took part in last years ARC Race and posted daily updates of the race on this blog. After a fantastic crossing, they now need to sail her back to the UK from St Lucia. Her skipper is looking for experienced crew that would be interested. Free passage and food is on offer as is an opportunity of a lifetime. They will be leaving Rodney Bay, St Lucia around 22 April 2012 and taking about 30 days to reach the south coast of England stopping off in Bermuda and the Azores. You will need to be an experienced sailor, coastal skipper minimum, and get yourself to St Lucia for departure around the 22 April. If you are in the Caribbean it would be an ideal opportunity to travel to the UK for the Olympics! If you are interested please drop me an email through the contact page of the website (link at the bottom of any lovesail page) and I will pass your details on to the skipper.
