20/02/2018 Fulmar Fever Fulmar Fever, is looking for her last crew member for Round Ireland.

All crew members get to helm and help with all jobs, we have a good set of racing sails, and are competitive in the cruiser class.

13/04/2018 Wild Spirit We have lost a team member as he has had to go and work in Japan.
Our package starts Troon Scotland (near Glasgow airport) on 23rd June and we train hard for 5 days before arriving in Wicklow.
This is aimed at sailors who can’t easily do RORC etc races and we have one from OZ plus one from US (not a Trump supporter).
After race there is an optional cruise back included.
Some sailing experience is needed and if you are a female who takes size XL or L plus works bow and navigator (not at same time) you would be perfect.
Other sizes, sexes and skills very much considered.
Our 4th VRIR and a jolly, supportive team

10/05/2018 Maybird Maybird is a gaff ketch traditionally rigged and built by Jack Tyrrell in Arklow in 1937.
I am looking for 2 new crew to join our team.
Maybird is a private boat so the costs are just an share of the entry/food bills.
In terms of experience required, an exposure to, and interest in, traditional and tall ship sailing is a must.
We are likely to be the slowest and the oldest boat in the race and are determined to finish so if you have a time deadline to be back ashore Maybird is not the boat for you.
