Tahiti to NZ via Tonga


We (Lisa and Clyde, married couple), are looking for a sailor(s) with catamaran experience in blue water voyages, to accompany us on a delivery trip from Tahiti to Auckland, with a short stop over in Tonga. We have blue water racing and cruising experience in the Pacific ourselves.
Our vessel is a Fontaine Pajot Bahia 46 ft cruising Cat, very nicely appointed with all the facilities one would expect to see in a true blue water catamaran. We intend leaving Tahiti on, or around, May 1st.2011. We will provide all food etc, and are open to negotiation on other costs.

Life is to be enjoyed, and is too short for opportunities like this to be ignored!

Re: Tahiti to NZ via Tonga

Many thanks to those of you who replied both here and by PM. We have found 2x crew from NZ, willing and able to help with delivery. However, we are finding the exact timing of the delivery clashing with a couple of unforseen personal circumstances and cannot be sure of when the delivery will take place. It may just be, that we will do the first stage of the delivery by ourselves, and continue across to Fiji so as not to inconvenience anyone else with our uncertain schedule.

Thanks again
Lisa and Clyde
