Panama / Galapagos to Marquesas / Tahiti

Hi there, we're two young Australian guys sailing our 2009 Beneteau Oceanis 46 (Extensive safety, genset and water maker) from Athens, Greece to Sydney, Australia. We're looking for 1 crew member to join us on our passage from either Panama (c24th of March) or Galapagos (c15th of April) to Marquesas or Tahiti in the South Pacific. We will be 3 in total and you'll have a private double cabin. Experience essential and you would be expected to carry out normal sea duties, including share of solo watches, cooking and cleaning. We would want to meet this person before make a decision. We'd also expect you to share in the provisioning costs. Check out our blog for more information on us - BVI bliss | Whippersnapper We're about to embark on a passage from the Caribbean to the San Blas Islands so may be offline for much of the next three weeks. Have patience with us.

Cheers,
Hugh and Mike

Re: Panama / Galapagos to Marquesas / Tahiti

Hi Hugh and Mike,

My name is Rich and I'm currently located down in Ecuador looking for passage across the Pacific, and your ad struck me as pretty interesting!

I'm 21 years old, from the US, and have been sailing small boats and windsurfing since I was 10. I've never been on a long voyage, but would love to get on one before going off to graduate school. I am reasonably fit, have no known medical problems, and very enthusiastic about sailing. I'd be happy to perform all required tasks and the like.

Are you planning on stopping in Ecuador at all along the way, or just in the Galapagos? If you're not, I might be able to get myself to the Galapagos on another boat by the 15th of April. Also, do you have any estimate regarding the average cost of the trip? I'm happy to chip in, but unfortunately I don't have an enormous budget, and it's got to last until school starts.

If you're interested, you can contact me at "rpang dot contact at gmail.com" or "rpang at wisc.edu".

Look forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Rich

Hi All, we're still looking for this crew member! Currently in La Playita Marina which is very close to Panama City. Want to meet with you before making a decision so you need to be in the local area. Some experience essential. Estimated departure date end of the month... We will go two handed if no one suitable is avaliable.

Re: Panama / Galapagos to Marquesas / Tahiti

Hi Hugh and Mike
I am a 28 year old male from South Africa. Currently looking at taking a break after my project ends mid july and want to embark on another adventure. I would love to try my hand at sailing and am very keen to help out where ever i can and in whatever position presents itself. I work in the TV industry which can be extremely difficult, long hours and very pressurised so am looking to do something completely different while i am away on holiday and something new and exciting. I would like to email and find out a few more details and dates etc etc. Please send me your email terence_monash @ yahoo . com
