Oceania !


We are a couple from France and Canada, a 26 years old man and a 25 years old woman. We're easy going, adapt easily every kind of situations and always have a word for a good laugh! To know more information about us or to know how it is to have us as guests, you can have a look at our web profile on Couch Surfing.

Also, we have no time obligations, we can leave whenever you need us and stay as long as you want us aboard!

We have to main objectives.

First would be to find to find a boat leaving from Oceania (Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, etc.) to go to America. But if it's not possible we don't have any problem to rethink our road (go to Africa instead and cross the Atlantic!)

But since we don't have much experience at sea, we also look forward learning and sharing as much of possible some cruising time with sailors who don't mind teaching us around! We're not afraid of spending time on the sea and actually are looking forward such an experience! If you have a boat and are looking for crewmate for shorter trip around Australia or Oceania, we're also interested by it!

We are now in Australia are available right away!

We've been traveling overland from France to India and now would like to discover the joy of sailing while still doing our trip around the world. We know that life on a small boat can be difficult sometimes but we're used to live in very restricted places and moving all the time. We slept in tents, stayed in trains, buses and trucks for long journeys, surrounded by a lot of people! And even if there's only one small single bed available we can even share it, it's not a problem for us!

The sea has always been appealing to us and we now feel it is time for us to jump into the adventure! Although we only have some theoretical knowledge we are more than keen to learn as much as possible. We're ready to take care of the boat, cook, clean, and whatever else work need to be done but also as you may guess, we're really looking forward sailing and learning!
