|shauna713#hotmail.com||07597747940||Hi there, my name is Shauna, 32. Available for the race and can schedule time for any team training needed prior to it.
Clipper race 2011, 4 weeks training, then the leg from Rio De Janeiro to Cape town. then also from Derry/Londonderry to Den Helder and back to race finish in Southampton.
Day skipper ticket
This past year I have sailed to Scotland, Tory, Downings, from Sicily to Sardinia and onto Malta on the Telefonica.
Last September I bought a 26ft sail boat and have formed a female crew and have raced in Lough Swilly this past year.
I have just completed my Yacthmaster theory, and plan to do my practical exam next summer so would love this extra milage and chance to sail around our Island.
Thank you for considering me!

My normal position is bow but happy and willing to take on any jobs and roles that are required of me. My offshore experience includes Fastnet completed 2019 (forced to retire in 2021), JOG seasons since 2019 on Scream 2 - J120 - with some RORC season 2019, and some 2021 races including DH Myth of Malham. I'm currently Race Captain at my university, and have sailed in the Bristol University's first team & Sheffield University's first team since 2016.

I am a 27 years old experienced sailor, I participated to two fastnet 2017 and 2019, as well as 2 double handed mini fastnet 2019 and 2021, and round Ireland 2018, all of these on either a J122, A Ker 40 or Mini 650. Appart from these main races, I was part of the solent racing circuits on mainly 40 footers for 3 years, and I am familiar with navigation around Ireland and more generally the Irish seas.
I feel comfortable at all position on board, from bow woman to navigation. I really much enjoy my last participation on this race 4 years ago and would really much like to reciprocate. I am easy going and active on board.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

|21st April 2022||Sam Cooper||003.sjc#gmail.com||07964516214||I am an experienced offshore sailor with thousands of ocean miles, many as the Mate. Much of my experience is on big boats (65' plus) and I enjoy the challenge of working as part of a crew to race effectively and safely. At some time I have been in most positions on board without ever really specialising in one and so I am comfortable jumping in where needed and taking advice and learning quickly. Probably I am a little rusty, as since the pandemic began my sailing has been little and not so often. Previously I worked in sail training and as a Deck Officer in the Merchant Navy, but since 2020 I have retrained and now work ashore.
Summary of experience:
- Yachtmaster Offshore (commercially endorsed + STCW) - 2x Atlantic crossings - South Africa to Australia - a number of shorter offshore races (RORC & JOG) in the North Sea and the Channel - extensive inshore racing and dinghy racing experience
I am available for the race and should be (fingers crossed) in a position to join for any training ahead of the start too. Thank you for your consideration!
