Unpaid volunteer for Pacific crossing mid-2014

I'm a male 23 year old electrical engineering graduate hoping to sail to Australia or NZ. The preferable departure time would be April or May 2014. I have basic sailing experience but a keen technical mind and willingness to help with anything. Cooking is a passion of mine and I've a good pair of sea legs from spending countless days fishing in deep water. I'd be happy to make a contribution to food and running costs.

Re: Unpaid volunteer for Pacific crossing mid-2014

You may get more offers if you tell people where you are sailing from, how much time you have available, and preferred route.

The majority of yachts arriving in Australia come across the Pacific. The best place to pick up a ride is probably Panama, followed by Mexico, California, Galapagos, Tahiti, but you can also pick up shorter rides from New Zealand, Vanuatu, Indonesia etc.

Check the various crew websites.

Thanks pal!
I'm in the US at the moment so California would be most convenient but I'm prepared to meet someone in Mexico or Panama.

Three months is my maximum journey time.

I'm open to any route on offer.
