stranded in Dili after captain canceled

I am seeking to get to Australia in June and the boat delivery I was suppose to be crewing got canceled. Normally I'd take a flight but considering I paid to come out here for a boat ride I'd view it as a waste of money to leave now by plane.

Is there anyone in Dili or Indonesia now and heading to Australia? I know the winds arent favourable but my ex-captain was willing to go.

Re: stranded in Dili after captain canceled

Hi really sorry to hear of your situation. If your are wanting to adventure by sailboat, we can offer you a passage. We are currently in Honiara (Solomon Islands) departing this Thursday, weather permitting, then through the Samurai Islands then to Port Moresby arriving approx 8 July. A day or 2 in PM then directly to Kupang, West Timor.
There are 2 on board the Beneteau 50 with 4 cabins, 4 bathrooms, all fitted out for ocean passages. Both the skipper and I are Yachtmaster Instructors and have thousands of sea miles. You will need to pay a portion of provision, diesel and visa entry costs (in this case to Indonesia. We can guarantee you a passage if you are in PM on 8 July. Let me know asap. Maureen
