Exclamation NZ to New Caledonia departing mid April 2016

Hello.... we are departing Opua NZ around mid April and we are looking for one or 2 crew for the passage to New Caledonia. There is a possibility to continue on to Vanuatu, Solomon. New Guinea, Timor and then Singapore.
It is important that you are flexible with time as nothing is worse than beating into headwinds to try to catch a pre booked flight.
The boat is a 50' Beneteau, and has recently undergone major upgrades (electronics, mechanical, etc) and is very seaworthy. Last year we sailed her from the Carribean to NZ. Both the skipper and I have our Yachtmasters (offshore, instructor certificates) and both of us have independently clocked up thousands of sea miles (mine as a solo sailor).
This is not a paid position: we split food, diesel and marina costs and individuals are responsible for entry visas to various countries. All boat repairs and maintenance is covered by the skipper (and his wife who will not be sailing this leg).
Naturally, any sailing experience would be preferable, though not essential. If you love the sea, probably don't get seasick, eat almost anything, don't smoke or do drugs ... then respond!
Maureen

Hi Barnaby
Fabulous that you are in NZ so we may be able to meet. Is there any chance that we can meet in Opua around 4th April. Both the skipper and I will be with the boat there then, so we can have a good meeting.... Please let me know

Hi Nick and Philip
Thanks for your reply. Ideally I would like to physically meet with any crew before setting sail.... It's a very long sail if we don't get along! So my first priority is to contact any "local" sailors and go from there. That said, we may be able to skype ..... I will recontact you next week to update you on progress.
Many thanks again
Maureen

Hi Maureen,

I'll be happy to join you.
My telephone number is +642 04 07 84 395.
