Antigua Classic Regatta was epic and Spirit has now made her way back to Ireland via Bermuda and the Azores and has started her 2017 Sail Training season kicking off with a wonderful sail around West Cork with a young crew nominated through Cobh Trad Sail Regatta. This is followed by a succession of voyages - see calendar below - finishing up in Cork City Marina on Friday 1st September.
On Friday 8th September Spirit will be ready to set sail for Spain and Portugal and possibly on to the Canaries where it is planned to haul her out and do a final refit before, reluctantly, putting her up for sale. After 20 years under current ownership she has never been in better shape and the time has come to pass the helm to a new owner to enjoy more adventures and explore new horizons with her.
If you would like to join the crew of Spirit of Oysterhaven on one of these voyages just get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can let you know when and where we have berths available.
We need to make the voyage cover its costs so everyone is expected to make a contribution to share running expenses, which for Ocean Milebuilding voyages such as from Viallamoura to Madeira and Lanzarote 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 annual subscription is €50.
