11/15/2021 from Gibraltar to Las Palmas Gran Canaria on a Hanse 588

OPO e-mail # 12-02 Gibraltar or Las Palmas Gran Canaria (Canary Islands Spain) to Caribbean (Grenada) - Boat owner OPOOPO has a 2019 Hanse 588 named Amadea. The boat is in Greece. He plans to depart Greece this October to sail to Gibraltar, the Canary Islands and on to the Caribbean. While he has friends and family who will cruise/transit to Gibraltar or Las Palmas he is looking at options to have OPO crew join for the passage from Grand Canaria to the Caribbean in November. I zoomed with him and his wife recently and they are very nice people doing their homework making preparations for their sailing adventure. The Hanse 588 (58 feet) is a very nice and well built boat. Amadea is practically new. While he has been sailing a long time this will be his first major ocean crossing so he is looking for one or two OPO crew with offshore experience to round out the crew along with one or two of his own friends. His wife will stay in Europe with young children and fly over to the Caribbean upon arrival. Since he is planning well in advance he wants to exchange information and resumes with interested crew starting now. Exact details with dates and destinations will be decided over the course of the planning. Namely, whether to join the boat in Gibraltar or Grand Canaria and which island in the Caribbean to make landfall. They are NOT joining the ARC so will most likely make landfall south of St. Lucia (maybe Grenada) so they can enjoy a full Caribbean season sailing downwind through the Caribbean chain of island before sailing back to Europe in the Spring of 2022. Do a good job and you could be invited for the return passage. The passage is free with all onboard expenses included, but as usual you need to get to and from the boat and have money for shore side meals and entertainment.
