I'm looking to be part of a crew for the D2M, to experience the race, hand-on sails and live a unique experience with a crew.

I've been several time on boat trip (motor & sailing) from my home place in France, Atlantic Ocean side (LES SABLES D'OLONNE, Vendee)

I do practice many water sport activities for long time such a surfing, kitesurfing, diving, swimming, and foiling.
Saying wise, I spent 3 weeks in a raw on a catamaran last summer time in Polynesia in holiday with my family but as well as crew member with a professional skipper, where we were linking islands to islands other several days sailing.

Dedicated to become a skipper since then, I gained Competent Crew certification (Dec 2022) and taking up Day Skipper in Feb and March.

Qualifications and Experience:
RYA Start Yachting and Competence Crew - Dec 2022
Holiday Cruising on a catamaran in Polynesia as part of crew of 3 (1 skipper plus 2) - July 2022, 21 days

Thank you for taking the time to read the above and incorporate a competent and enthousiaste person in your crew.

Hi ))

I am a novice in sailing but where I lack in experience I make up in heaps of enthusiasm and commitment to the ocean and the sailing )

My first time on a boat was in March 2022, since then I had been on a few races at DOSC, which was prior to taking up Start Yachting and Competent Crew courses, so the scoop of things I was allowed to do was minimal. I since gained Competent Crew certification (Dec 2022) and taking up Day Skipper in Feb and March.

I appreciate that D2M is a serious full on race and its a long shot for a freshie little sailor to gain a place on it but long shot is still a shot 🙂 and if you take a chance on me, gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie, If you put me to the test, if you let me try!

Qualifications and Experience:
RYA Start Yachting and Competence Crew - Dec 2022
Holiday Cruising on a monohull in Greece as part of crew of 3 (1 skipper plus 2) - June 2022, 3 days
Holiday Cruising on a cat in Croatia. I didn`t do much as 10 out of 12 party were experienced sailors, but I observed a lot - Sept 2-22, 7 days
Few pursuit races in Dosc (probably 5-6) doing what I am told on winching, roping, some driving with tiller and helm, spinnaker drop over the summer 2022

Thank you for taking time to read this!

Dear Skipper or Boat Owner,

My name is Clair and I am looking for a crew member spot on a boat for the D2M race and the return. If there is an opportunity to Skipper then I am happy to carry out that role.

Currently I am working on the passage plan as it’s an interesting exercise but, it my contribution of being part of your crew plus I am a great believer knowing your exit route regardless of your position on the boat.

Brief sailing background….

I’ve been part of a boat deliveries from Croatia to Athens, Lymington to Lezadriux and Muscat to Dubai to name a few.

In terms of tickets, I have power boat 2, Day Skipper, UAE boat licence. In January I’ll have my Sea Survival cert too. To date, I have logged about 2,800nm.

I currently crew/skipper S/Y Searenity on a regular basis.

Ever since i can remember my grandfather had a sailing boat in the north sea out of Belgium, we would often go during the weekends. I soon joined the sea scouts in Brussels until I moved to Dubai in 2003. I went to high school here and took some sailing lessons at JASC. After having studied abroad I came back to the UAE to work for flydubai as a pilot in 2014. Soon after we became members at DOSC a bought a Beneteau first 20.
