Crew Wanted – Cowes Week

Team Marta have registered for Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week 2013. Now we need you! Sigma 38s always well represented here, making for close and exciting racing. A fantastic annual event, this is a brilliant opportunity for first-time sailors and those wishing to improve on their experience. The evenings are packed with entertainment and there might even be a few beers stashed away on board..?

We will be racing the first weekend – Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th August – before the big test of the Rolex Fastnet Race, for which there is still one more crew position available.

We are looking for crew of varying abilities, so don’t hesitate to contact. Please get in touch if you’d like to be part of of this great event, or with any enquiries:
