  Dear Hobie sailor,

I am looking for a crew to compete in the 2007 Archipelago Raid in Sweden. However I will be attending the event in a slightly unusual way. I am planning to sail there first. This is the progression from the BritCAT Round Britain Challenge during June 06. My current crew Mark Angell regrettably can't attend due to other commitments.

The event is the most grueling long distance cat race in the world covering upto 500 miles in 4-5days, sailing the through 100,000's Swedish and Finnish islands and rocks.

The sail to Sweden is about 1000nm and should take a maximum of 14 days to sail, it is about half the distance of sailing around Britain. The first leg will be the worst/best (depending how you look at it) with 313nm non-stop from Stonehaven, Scotland to Vestbygda, Norway. Taking a maximum 72 hrs.
The whole Challenge will run from 10 July to 07 Aug.

The ideal candidate will have good helming and navigational skills, electrickery/electronical skills, must be happy with night sailing, will have some offshore yacht sailing experience, must like freeze dried food and sailing ALOT!!

The project will be an exciting one to be involved with, and will gain a large amount of exposure. Title sponsorship has been arranged; all kit and equipment will be provided.

Please contact Luke Yeates on 07729490409 or [email protected] or see www.britcat.co.uk for info.
