Tropical sailing - escape the northern winter

Crew needed for a short (2 week) passage in 100% warm water from Singapore to Thailand (Jomtien). Stopping in Pulau Tioman (Malaysia), Songkhla (Thailand), Koh Samui (Thai), Koh Tao (Thai) then across the Gulf of Thailand to Jomtien (if you've not heard of it .. it's about 10 kms from the more famous - or infamous - Pattaya).
Light, fast 10.6 m yacht (Archambault 35) .. with a full complement of racing sails on board if I can find an enthusiastic crew .. otherwise a leisurely passage under cruising sails.
Leaving Singapore around 31 Dec (depending on crew availability) .. arriving Jomtien 2 weeks later ..

Re: Tropical sailing - escape the northern winter

I'm looking for people who are the vicinity (or prepared to make a long flight to escape their winter ) - I don't need a professional delivery crew - just an enthusiast or 2 to join the basic crew of 3 - mainly someone who can keep watch on the night passages. We'll avoid these when possible, but there are a couple of 1- or 2-day stretches and, if the weather encourages it, we may decide that a night passage which has us arriving somewhere at daybreak will be a good option. Otherwise, it's just a chance to escape snow, or work, or ... and keep fit swimming, fishing or hauling sails.

Looks like I will be in the Puket from about the 12th but only free from the 30th if you need crew for further north.
