Sail the Kimberly in Western Australia

Am looking for 1 x crewmember to sail from Darwin to Broom through the exciting Kimberly Coast of Western Australia from September/October 2013. The yacht is a Beneteau 50 with all the necessary gear of Offshore sailing. I have been sailing for over 20 years and this will be my 3rd cruise of the Kimberly. Anyone interested, sailing experience is not essential.

Re: Sail the Kimberly in Western Australia

Hello,

I am currently based in New Zealand where my visa will expire in September. I have no official plans for after New Zealand and am keen for an adventure!

I have river and lake sailing experience. I have 'captained' boats (flying scot; rainbow) in these environments with crew that have never sailed before.

I am really interested in learning more. I am a geographer at heart and am up for adventure!

Get in touch if you have any questions!

Cheers,
JJ

Re: Sail the Kimberly in Western Australia

Thanks for the reply. I may be able to join in on the last bit of the trip. Do you have any stops that I might be able to fly into to meet?

Cheers!

Not to Hijack your thread but I am leaving Dampier in the next 2 weeks and still looking for crew. Have advertised in a few places and am trying to sort a few dates out. She aint no 60 ft ketch but she is a solid well travelled boat. I helped dliver Johns UFO 34 ( freo - Bali race boat) back from Dampier to Gero if you know him I am sure ( Hope) he would sing my praises :-) let me know if you are intersested and will see how we can work in. I am heading south to Albany but a prettry leisurely pace.
