I'm a 21 year old kiwi male, my sailing is limited to being crew on coastal and lake excursions, but It's a dream of mine to sail from the America's across the pacific... Due in part to being a direct descendant of Bounty Mutineer leader Fletcher Christian (he is my great great great great great great grandfather). Maybe it's just in my blood!? I am in Brasil right now but have the resources to fund my travels to a meeting point and for supplies. I am most keen to get to tahiti
but will consider anything going westward as I would love to explore the islands.
is also in the abrasive blasting and spraypainting business in Whangarei, New Zealand
. Rudolphs Ltd is the company and I worked for them prior to my trip here. I'm sure I could also arrange for some very cost-effective maintenance
should the vessel like to go that far.
Any advice/links/fingers-in-the-right-direction/contacts would be very appreciated. I have just started seriously planning this, because I've decided I'd rather do this than use my return flight home. I'm here now, have the resources and the desire so why not?
I am keen and hard-working, and a quick-learner who desires to become a true sailor.
