Re: Needing Crew for 45 foot catamaran St Lucia to OZ and beyond

Hi,

I'm interested in the trip, sounds like a great adventure. I graduated from college in california and would like to go cruising. I've been boating for most of my life, have done a lot of racing in smaller boats, and have cruised in southern california and the sea of cortez. I'd like to hear more about the trip! Hope to hear from you soon.

Matt

Hi Liseron,

My girlfriend, Yaz (23, photographer and PR/events) and I (25, worked in social media & advertising) are currently in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on our way to Panama and then hopefully onwards across the Pacific to Australia or New Zealand.

We sailed here from Los Angeles on a Catalina 42 and circumnavigated Antigua in 2009. We have great experience in sailing, night watches, cleaning, cooking and provisioning as well as being friendly and easy going too.

In addition to our practical experience, we're qualified to RYA Competent Crew level and very keen to progress our skills and learn from more experienced sailers as we sail with them.

When do you expect to arrive in Panama? Is it likely you'll need crew there? We could meet you either on the Pacific side or on the Caribbean side if you prefer.

Thanks,

Tom & Yaz

Re: Needing Crew for 45 foot catamaran St Lucia to OZ and beyond

Hello
We are professional couple and novice sailors. We are laid back with a can do attitude. We are trying to get more miles under our belt before we begin our full time sailing life in a few years. Becca is a great chef and probably the better half. Many years ago I sailed the coastal waterways of Florida, but this seems to be a life time ago. We are both non smokers, social drinkers. We are searching for our own catamaran and would love to get real time experience with the two of you. We are available in February & March our schedules are flexible for a two to three weeks. Unfortunately we would not be able to join you all the way to Australia. We will be able to pay for our own transportation to and from the boat along with provisions and other reasonable costs..

Howdy,

I have been sailing since I was 10 and spent about 12 years in the USCG, so I have a good deal of experience on the water in all size vessels.

I am available for the entire trip if we all end up being a good fit. I am very easy going and laid back and enjoy spirited conversations, but tend to be quiet and unobtrusive for the most part.

Unfortunately, I am unable to contribute anything other than my hard work and dedication to making the trip as safe and enjoyable as possible.

If this sounds like what you might be looking for then please let me know!

Thanks!!

Michael

Re: Needing Crew for 45 foot catamaran St Lucia to OZ and beyond

Hi,
I am a 36 year old female and my girlfriend and I have been looking to get on as crew for an adventure to expand our sailing experience and see some more of the world. We are currently in California and are both available from February until at least June. We are excellent at following directions and are very laid back but willing to work hard and have a lot to contribute. Message me with any additional information you may need and we can discuss further.
Cheers, Andrea

hey Liseron,

Hopefully i am on of the world travellers you are looking for.
My name is Kevin, Belgian, 34 yr old and looking for a boat to crew on to leave from Panama to Oz, the last 3 months i was crewing on a 40 ft cat on the Caribbean side of Panama.
I am easy going, reasonable cook, and eager for some adventure.
I am also a diving instructor, so besides sailing, would love to dive some of the Pacific islands
Contact me at x8kevver at hotmail dot com
looking forward to hearing from you
Kevin

To all still interested in the adventure from St Lucia to Brisbane below is the rough itinerary for trip across as you can see I have allowed for longish transit times between Islands and some time at each waypoint for adventuring , again times not set in stone if quicker transits are made then more time to adventure at each loation.
Liseron is a 45 foot Leopard catamaran set up for extended cruising with plenty of water and power capacity and full cockpit hardtop.


Itinerary for Liseron
Depart St Lucia March 1st
Aruba March 8 depart march 10
Colon March 17 transit canal to Panama depart march 31
Galapagos April 13 Depart April 16
Nuka Hiva May 26 Depart May 29
Tahiti June 7 Depart June 10
