MVS Crew Needed to Sail to the Islands

The Gosport Unit of the MVS is looking for volunteers to crew a 40ft Jeannneau Sun Odyssey yacht.

Volunteers will need to travel to Cherbourg by ferry to board the yacht before spending the week sailing around and visiting the Islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm.

Then the crew will travel back across the Channel to arrive in Portsmouth on the 18th of July.

The skipper is Kevin Attwood who has a lot of experience on this yacht and Stuart Harrison as navigator and administrator.

Volunteers do not need to have any experience of yachting as they will be trained on the job. According to Stuart it will be a bonus to train people and give them their first taste of yachting.

Experts and beginners are therefore welcome to join the crew.

The cost is £200 per person for the week including food.
