Anyone fancy a spot of adventure?
Last year, Robert May found himself in between jobs at property software companies, so he went on a yacht cruise, as a member of the crew.
He enjoyed it so much, he booked again this year, not realising that as the new operations director of software company Jupix, he would be too busy making waves to have time to go.
So, he’s happy to give his place up to an EAT reader.
It costs nothing, apart from contributions to food, drink and marina dues. And as a member of the crew, there will be the occasional night-watch duty.
Robert says: “This is a genuine once in a lifetime opportunity to sail on one of the world’s finest luxury cruising yachts.
“The trip is split into passages going from Chichester up to the northern tip of Norway by mid-summer.
The passages start in April and go through to the end of September with the Scilly Isles, Channel Isles, Shetland and the Orkneys all on the itinerary.
It is, says Robert, a cruise and not a race. The timetable can also blow off course – last year, the yacht had to stay in a Scottish loch for four days because of gales.
