Majuro, Marshall Islands to Noumea, New Caledonia

Experienced easy going French skipper (own a captain licence), fluent in French, English, Spanish, own an old but good wharram cat' Tangaroa MK1 well equiped. This cruising is not a commercial cruising by the way.
I am looking for a crew, 1 or 2 people preferably experienced, if you are not experienced then we need to be 3, otherwise 2 people you and me is enough if you are experienced.
The boat is currently in Majuro, Marshall Islands.
I plan to go south thrue Kiribati, Tuvalu and salomons, or vanuatu, weather will decide....
I am ok to share the food fuel, gas, and various administration stuffs that we have to go trough, I am not asking much exept that you are hopefully serious by taking your 2 hours duty on night (2hours you, 2 hours me, 2 hours you, 2 hours me...) and you are a funny guy (or girl)
more info on my email : breizhstarsailor@gmail.com
or skype me at breizhstarsailor
See you soon!

Re: Majuro, Marshall Islands to Noumea, New Caledonia

That sounds like a fairly awful night watch.... we tried it once and it didn't work, cos it can take a good while to actually fall asleep, and night watches are tedious so your watch needs to be better rested in order to be alert. I'd think that a minimum of four hours kip would be better

Welcome aboard, BTW!

Re: Majuro, Marshall Islands to Noumea, New Caledonia

Ok, if you prefer 4 hours watch no problem, my cat is fully equiped and has an automatic pilot and a 220 amp battery dedicated to it, plus a wind generator and solar panel dedicated to this brand new battery, so I never have to do anything on it except watching, but when I am saying watching I mean it... It is not a movie, it is serious (and can be fun), when it is about security issues.

Re: Majuro, Marshall Islands to Noumea, New Caledonia

Hi there, my name is Fabio,I'm Italian but I'm fluent in Spanish, English and I'm learning french. I'm a easy going person with addiction for traveling,in fact I just finish to cross Africa in my 4WD car; if you want u can check my website at:

VI VERI AFRICAM VIVUS VIDI - home

I am on my around the world ticket for one year at the moment I'm in Montreal working in an Italian restaurant as a chef but I will fly in November to L.A. after a week to Honolulu and after another week to fiji( I can change all flight!) my plan is to stay in the pacific area for a while and looking to become part of a crew sailing anywhere around that part of the world.
When do you think to leave for your voyage? may be I can reach you from Honolulu if date combine...
I don't have a lot of experience, but I am totally in love with the ocean and its my dream to sail the world. I'm up for a lot of hard work whether it be cooking, or helping cruise.I did few "regata" in the Mediterranean only in Italian though.

hope to hearing from you

F.

ps my skype contact is gimmy78
