Aussie guy available for week long trip ~12 hours flight from Australia

Hi everyone,

I would be interested if anyone has any room for a 7-10 day trip at a location that was about 12 hours flight from Australia.

My work situation means I am available to travel for 7-10 days every 5 weeks. Currently I usually spend it somewhere warm like Asia or Queensland, Australia.

I have completed an ASA bare boat course and chartered a couple of boats, however I'm pretty new when it comes to sailing. I have been around power boats all my life, I'm just transitioning to sail.

I would be more than happy to pay my share. I am an electrician and refrigeration mechanic so am comfortable will all things mechanical.

I would prefer a large cat as that is what I intend on buying to sail around the world in, but I am open to any type of boat really I just love being on the water.

Cheers,
Tony

Will be doing the East coast of Aus this year then onto Indonesia on a Lagoon 440 cat from Melb.
May have a cabin available for typical 5-7 day trips.
