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. We plan to compete in the RORC race series in 2017, including the Fastnet.

Previous offshore racing experience is essential for the Fastnet and previous offshore cruising experience is required for RORC qualification races. Novices are welcome on JOG races, if there are enough "core crew", and/or on training events. All members have the opportunity to be considered for the Fastnet subject to qualifications, previous experience and participation in 2017 qualifying races

Introductory sailing days and weekends are being arranged from November 2016 to March 2017. There will be a short break to service and maintain the boat ashore in March in preparation for race training and the races from April 2017 onwards. Full details of all events will appear on this site in December.

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.
