Sounds like good craic and a great opportunity to gain more experience costal sailing.
Last year as a sailboat hitchhiker I sailed from Honduras, to Jamaica, to the DR, to Aruba and then to Colombia.
I sailed under a great German captain with plenty of racing experience, she taught me well.
I have experience with night watches and helping the captain and crew to monitor and change the course and sails when needed.

Yacht racing from amateur club racing to Cowes Week Irc1, Jog offshore races, and Island Sailing club twilight series. As well as this I am an assistant race coach for Unity Race Training on their Sunfast’s. I have been doing this for 4 years. Part time rigger and boat captain. In terms of positions on board, due to my strength, height and age (6.1, 21 yrs) I am usually a foredeck or mast man, however I am able to turn my hand to all areas of the boat, including helming. Round Ireland is a big aspiration of mine and would love to join you for the race, I believe my calm and cool nature as well as varied experience will mean I am an asset to any team. I wish you fair winds, and I look forward to hearing from you.
