I need someone with a day skipper ticket to act as a mate for a delivery trip from Plymouth to Hollyhead and then Hollyhead to Rhu in the Gareloch.
Ideally it will be someone who is serving in the Army, Navy or Airforce, but in extremis I can take a civilian.
The dates are Plymouth - Hollyhead 7 - 13 May and Holyhead to Rhu 13 - 20 May. Minimum personal contribution to food and expenses.
The boat is a well found Westerly Sealord (39'6") and I am a Yachtmaster Instructor and Yachtmaster Examiner. I have several other crew for each leg already, but to comply with regulations for the MOD then I need a minimum of Day Skipper on board as well.
Please note that this trip is advertised heavily in my unit and I will be phoning round MOD establishments tomorrow and serving people will take priority
Let me add a phrase, "I very much regret that serving applicants will take priority in order to comply with the rules laid down by the MOD." No sense of second class civi's - but I have to abide by the rules. I can only take a civilian if no service people are available.
