How to increase your odds of winning a free cabin.

Every so often, we will draw a winner from our (virtual) Captain's Hat.  The more times your name is in the hat, the better the chance your name will be drawn.  Once in the hat, your tickets stay in there for every drawing!

The first time you subscribe to our Youtube Channel, we toss in 10 tickets with your name on them, but there are more ways to add additional tickets!

Here are the details if you win a cabin

  • Winning - When you win a drawing, you earn one cabin for a week, which means you may bring yourself and a guest!  We will let you choose the week and location from available options, meaning, when a cabin is free, (this is first come, first serve).  The newest winner will be announced on the next S/V Lynx Voyage Video after the drawing.
  • What is included - You win the use of one of our four cabins for a week.  Each cabin can be for one or two people (your choice), staying on a queen size bed.  The cabin's have their own en-suite head (with toilet, shower, and sink).  All activities on board are included.
  • What is not included - You must get to where the boat is located (meaning, you must pay for any flights, or other transportation, including transfers, etc. that you use.  Also, you will need to chip in on consumables (things like food, gas, etc.).  This will be a set amount so that you know your costs ahead of time, and typically amounts to a $50 to $100 a day, per guest, contribution. If you win, you may select a date and destination from available options that we will present.  Once you choose, we will let you know the exact amount you will need to chip in before you decide to claim your cabin for your week on the S/V Lynx voyage.  Finally, all activities that take place off the boat are at your own expense, things like dining out, shore tours, etc.)
  • A disclaimer about your choice of date and destinations - We cannot guarantee the boat to arrive on time where and when you expect it to be.  Delays may happen due to politics, poor weather, or unforeseen repairs.  Even if all goes well on the pickup, while on board, we cannot guarantee the projected itinerary as it may also be affected by similar factors.  We can assure you that we will do our best to stick to the plan but some things are just out of our control.   If the boat doesn't make it to where you are waiting, there are no refunds; after all, this is a free cabin!  If we know the boat is being delayed before you depart, we will contact you, immediately, and warn you of the change.  However, we suggest you take out travel insurance on your flights, or other travel methods, and have enough funds to book a room at your arrival point in case the boat is delayed.  We cannot and will not reimburse you for these costs.  If you cannot afford to take the risk then do not try to claim the free cabin.  We can always do another drawing and let someone else become crew for a week.
  • What is required of you to claim your free cabin if you win: We have a few minor requirements for people to join our crew.  You cannot be a convicted felon.  You must be vaccinated for the Covid-19 virus. You must have DAN Membership (which is not expensive and covers you for air lift medical rescues.  DAN Membership is currently running $40 for a year).  Absolutely no illegal (recreational) drugs are to be brought on board, ever!  Social drinking is allowed... but not drunkenness.  This is BYOB since we do not supply alcoholic beverages to crew.  You may purchase beverages to bring on board ashore if we make a provisioning stop.  You should bring any personal gear for sports, but only what fits in with your other belongings in a single duffle bag.  These things could include things like a mask for diving/snorkeling, snorkel, fins, bathing suit.  However, you should definitely bring along your own towels, washcloths, toiletries, medications (legal) that you require, sunscreen, your choice for seasickness prevention, cash or credit cards for shore excursions, a pair of shoes for shore, boat shoes (if you don't want to go barefoot),  Don't worry, we will send you a full list of what you should be bringing once you win a cabin.  Finally, before even departing for your week as crew, you will be required to sign a release absolving the Captain and Crew of all liability while you are on board during as invited crew on S/V Lynx.
