Seeking Adventurous Crew for Pacific Crossing!

S/V Cheeky Monkey is about to embark on the ultimate sailing adventure from the Caribbean to Panama to the Galapagos to the South Pacific islands and we are seeking the right crew to join us on this adventure!

About us

If you’re interested in finding out more about us (Tasha & Ryan), the crew we’ve had on board so far and the kinds of adventures we’re out looking for, catch up on our story by watching our YouTube Channel, Chase the Story: www.youtube.com/chasethestoryaroundtheworld or reading Tasha's blog: Home - Turf to Surf


About the boat
Cheeky Monkey is a 2015 Fountaine-Pajot Helia 44 catamaran (owner's version). The boat is privately owned by Tasha & Ryan, entrepreneurs and adventurers who recently sold their businesses in New York City to upgrade to this boat for their journey around the world.


So, what are we looking for in the crew who join us on Cheeky Monkey?

Essential Qualities
· Adventurous
· Good sense of humor
· Open-minded
· Young at heart
· Fun
· Sporty
· Easy-going
· Good personal hygiene
· Not allergic to or afraid of cats

Extra Qualities
· YouTube Channel / Videography experience
· Creative abilities
· Social Media / PR expertise
· Sailing experience
· Good at fixing things
· Good chef
· Good at watersports

Timeline / Rough dates
· We are looking to depart the Caribbean at the end of March 2016 for Cartagena, Colombia.

· Possible stops where crew can get on board: Cartagena (5 days after our departure from an island in the Caribbean - TBD) or Panama (a week or two after Cartagena).

· The journey is tentatively planned to be from the Caribbean to Cartagena to Panama through the Panama Canal to the Galapagos Islands to the Marquesas in the South Pacific.



Application
· Stage 1: Submit a resume + either a 2-minute video or a 300-word personal statement answering the question, “Why do you want to be a part of this amazing adventure?”
· Application Deadline: March 23rd, 2016
· Email submissions to ryan@turftosurf.com

FAQs
· How much will it cost? You only need to cover the cost of your flights.
· How long will I be crew for? No adventure of this magnitude can be achieved on a two-week vacation. We are looking for crew who can commit to a crossing or two.

Crew Expectations
· All crew share equally in the duties on board Cheeky Monkey, including keeping watch, cleaning, cooking, maintaining the boat, repairs, provisioning runs and cocktail making.
· We expect crew to contribute to the creative process on board, using whatever skills they have or are willing to learn – i.e. video-making, posting on social media, photography, website building, etc.
· We expect crew to have fun and enjoy the adventure!
