We aim to tailor the participation to what we imagine you want your options to be.  Give us feedback with your wants or wishes and we will adjust.

The obvious and easy choice is to run by our Patreon page and sign up.  We have limited our Patreon tiers to three.  In these three levels, you can participate either as a fun supporter, an apprentice yachtie or as an all in Escape-West Patreon with access to all information and eligible to win a free passage on sy Escape.

For those of you that wants to partake more actively, additional to being a Patreon, we offer ‘on the water’ participation.  Please check out our itineraries and see if any of this can be aligned to your own schedule.

On the water participation is real participation where you enter as a crew and partake in all aspects of a crossing, from planning, preparations, the crossing and debriefing / learning.  It is a hands on practical use of all available tools with our guidance and advisory.

Please get in contact with us by using the form below.  Write a little about yourself, why you want to come and what you can contribute with.  We run a happy ship and that is the sum of all on-board.  Any skills you may have in mechanics, electronics, video, social media, IT etc is greatly appreciated.  We will follow up with a skype interview to get to know you somewhat more and outline all details of participation

Love to hear from YOU in the comments below or just e-mail us at

Hi Theresa, Vetle and Dag! Are you still looking for crew to cross the Atlantic with you in January? I have been working in environmental education, taking a career break to spend a few months sailing before I buy my own boat. I have RYA Competent Crew, am a quick learner, haven’t been seasick (yet), love cooking and being around families and children. Look forward to hearing from you 🙂 Mariel
