Salamander - The Crew
Salamander is a charter boat that is making its 12th Atlantic crossing East to West this year. On board are Chris, the skipper and his wife Sue, who has the task of looking after us all.
The six crew are here on an adventure of a lifetime and are all male on this trip. In alphabetical order we have Alan, Andrew, Clive, Fredrik, Ralph and Tim (me).
We are split into three watches and share a cabin with our watch buddy. Tim & Andrew, Ralph & Alan, Clive & Fredrik.
None of us knew each other before joining Salamander in Las Palmas. I had sailed the boat from Lymington to Las Palmas with Chris and Sue but with a different crew.
We seem to be getting on really well so far which is fantastic. I guess we are all bound by a similar desire to cross the Atlantic Ocean.
I've asked each crew member to write a short piece explaining why they are doing the ARC this year, so keep a lookout for that over the coming days.
