Note: Mia & I handle all the sign-ups - when we’re at sea, it’ll take a few days until you hear back from us. If you signup now, you will get an email from our apprentice Ben, but we won’t officially confirm your signup until we’re back.

There is no experience required, just an adventurous attitude & positive spirit! With your completed application, a 50%, non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your crew space - you'll be invoiced for this after submitting the application. Crew spaces are allocated on a first-paid, first-served basis. In the event that your application is unapproved (this is extremely rare), you'd receive a full refund on your initial application deposit.
Once your registration has been approved, 50% of the balance is due - you'll get an email confirming your registration has been accepted, which will include an invoice that you can then pay online via credit card. Alternatively, instructions will be included if you'd like to pay by check. This 50% payment is non-refundable.Final payment is due 60 days before the trip starts, and you'll again receive an email invoice asking for this. In the event of a last-minute cancellation, your final payment may be eligible to transfer to a future passage.
Additionally, you may combine any of the back-to-back legs for a special price (for example, to sail the entirety of an Atlantic crossing from Portugal to Antigua). Please indicate this on your application and your invoice will reflect the discount.
Rates will include all onboard necessities, including food, use of PFDs, sunscreen, etc. Not included are airfare to and from the boat, airport transfers, meals & drinks ashore, shoreside excursions (unless where indicated), personal sailing gear (boots, foulies) etc.
