I am looking for additional crew members to sail in offshore races organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC)and the Junior Offshore Group (JOG).

The boat is Mardy Gras, a high-specification X332, and it is based in Haslar Marina, Gosport. The core crew competed in the Fastnet races in 2013 and 2015. I have around 20,000 miles offshore experience including 4 Fastnets, Plymouth/Spain and Plymouth/La Rochelle.

We are currently lying 24th out of 115 in class in 2015 and we completed the Fastnet race after breaking our forestay south of the Fastnet rock, which was a feat of endurance on behalf of all the crew.

Previous cruiser racing experience is essential for the Fastnet and previous cruiser sailing experience is required for RORC qualification races. Novices are welcome on JOG races, if there are enough "core crew", and/or on training events.

The boat is also available for skippered charter week-ends or one week trips, for 4 people. Please contact me via this site if you are interested.
