GIROLLE - Class 5 - Looking for Crew for 2013 Season.
Girolle is a Beneteau First 36s7. We are planning to do most of JOG Inshore and Offshore series, plus RSrnYC Regattas and passage races. Looking for sailors with some offshore experience, especially all round sailors who can (and are willing to) turn their hand to different tasks on the boat. Girolle has no spinnaker pole, just a bowsprit so we race downwind under asymmetric kites. We have a new, larger, A2 kite being built for the 2013 season.
For 2013 Girolle is based on the RSrnYC pontoon.
Please contact Tim Corner on firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
