Spirit is now berthed in the beautiful Marina Rubicon, in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. During March club members will be enjoying cruising around the Canaries, exploring the outlying islands, such as the Selvegas and remote anchorages like Graciosa.
After Easter Spirit will sail to the Azores. This will involve an ocean voyage in two stages - the first to Madeira, 275 miles, over two days, and the second to the Azores, 550 miles over 4 - 5 days. This will allow time to visiting the islands of Porto Santo and Madeira, then for some time cruising and whalewatching around the Azores islands. From the Azores Spirit will be embarking on the ocean crossing of 5-6 days to Spain.
In Spain we will haul out for annual maintenance and brightwork. Following that we will, reluctantly, be offering her for sale as the time has come to pass the helm to a new owner to enjoy more adventures and explore new horizons with her.
While she is for sale we will continue to sail her with club members on a shared expenses basis in Galicia. This is a beautiful cruising area and well serviced by airports with direct connections to Dublin.
If you would like to join the crew of Spirit of Oysterhaven on one of these voyages just get in touch at email@example.com and we can let you know when and where we have berths available.
We need to make each voyage cover its costs so everyone is expected to make a contribution to share running expenses, which for Ocean Milebuilding voyages such as from Lanzarote to the Azores, or from the Azores to Spain, the cost averages out at €80 per night. For coastal cruising in Spain and Portugal and island cruising around the Canaries, guest crew will be paying €120 per night.
All crew members will be members of Spirit of Oysterhaven Club for which the once off subscription is €50.
