Mexico to South Pacific

G'day All, I am looking to Sail from Mexico, March/April. Will be heading to the South Pacific and looking to take a year, maybe more to reach Oz for a start. Seeking crew with good sense of humour more than a lot of experience, which I have little of either. Boat is CSY 44 . Looking for easy going good company. Inspire you with confidence? hahaha. No more plans than that.

Re: Mexico to South Pacific

I have been sailing off the coast of Florida and Texas. What would be my cost of the trip?

Hi Buymy Rod,
I have seen some of your other post and had a bit of a laugh about you defending your Nametag Hahaha. Good luck with finding something a little earlier. Did you try the Black Wind,?
Cheers

Re: Mexico to South Pacific

G'day Mr Gravel,
I'll see you along the way it seems, I'm doing the trip back to Australia too. The boat is a Catalina 42 up at Marina Del Rey right now. I'll be leaving there early Nov to sail down to Mexico, on to Ecuador ( better angle for Galapagos), chill out there until Feb readying for the trip back across the Pacific to....most likely Bundaberg.
Cheers, Alan

Re: Mexico to South Pacific

Hi Sailor77, I may be a little late for you as I may not leave La Paz till the end of March which would likely mean you flying from Marquesas and i hear that can be rather expensive. I'll Stay in touch though.

Alan/Jamel As above I may be behind you, but keep in touch. Are you planning a leisurely trip or just taking your new boat home?

Definitely leisurely! It's a long way home but it's a privilige to be able to sail the South Pacific one more time.

I'll linger in Mexico, then on down to Ecuador( alot of cruisers go that way to better deal with the humbolt current that sweeps up).
Intend to be in Marquesas by March if I can to be able to use the full season to cruise through the islands, arriving Australia in Oct latest.

Re: Mexico to South Pacific

Hi I am an 18 year old girl with a competent crew qualification and a day skippers completion, I am taking a gap year next year and looking for some fun sailing, I am a surfer and Kitesurfer and would preferably sail in places that have spots to surf and kite as well as warm sunny weather, Mexico to South Pacific sounds lovely and i have no plans from feb onwards.

Re: Mexico to South Pacific

Bangkaboat, I surely can't believe that you would take a 42 minute headstart before issuing the Challenge. Sails up, Favourable winds quite an advantage. You must be on the way to Mexico by now. Hahaha
I mean "Competent crew" I could really do with a couple of those. I have of course thwarted you with my standard introductory message. You know the one
Single?
Been in Film?
Please send Photo.

Sure to be a winner
LOL
Gravel
Oh and one more thing, What exactly is the requirement for being a Senior
Cruiser, I hope its not just being old, otherwise I may have to change my profile. According to some anyway. :-)
