The yacht, fuel and provisions provided for meals onboard, (no Alcohol). At port stops meals are planned ashore and at your own expense.

Everything else. IE:

What’s it like, what should I expect? (Crew):
A delivery is unlike cruising or racing, the yacht needs to depart and arrive on schedule. In this case, we have allowed sufficient time for some overnight stops and a bit of cruising, the exact passage plan will be prepared by the Skipper and approved by Island Spirit Charters. Given the constraints it’s not always possible to sail all the time, generally, there is some motor sailing. It is also critical that we do not break the yachts during the delivery as they will be required to go out on charter very soon after their arrival at their destination, so you can, and we do, expect the Skipper to sail conservatively.
The Skipper will divide the crew in to watches, each group will be expected to stand their watch on a rotation basis, 2-4 hours on and some time off. It is common and sometimes necessary to sail for periods of 24 hours or more without stopping, the rotation continues throughout.
You should also expect to assist with provisioning and with some of the preparation work and boat checks before departing.
What am I expected to have:
Crewing experience commensurate to your position on board.
Wet weather gear, a jacket will do.
Are the destination times guaranteed:
No, but it’s pretty important to us that the yacht arrives as scheduled.
What about cancellation:
- If you pull out you lose your money.
- If we cancel, you get your money back.
