pirate Couple wants to join a crossing in the South Seas (Fiji, Cook Islands, ...)

Hi there!

me, Tobias, 35 from Germany and Stef, 30 from Austria will be in the South Seas from mid July 19 until beginning of October.

We'd like to do some sailing and it doesn't really matter from where to where. Ideal would be a crossing from Fiji to the Cook Islands End of July/Start of August, but really, we want to do it for the experience, so anything is possible.

We don't have an official sailing license, but we know our way around. Tobias once did an Atlantic Crossing, with 21 days without land.

We'd be so happy if we could join you on your boat. We're nice, sporty, like to surf, oh and we are good cooks :-).

Simply write us an email or answer here! Thanks!

Tobias & Stef

Tobias, the trip from Fiji to the Cooks is all upwind, it is unlikely that you'll get a ride going that way.

Hi Ann, well :-) Thanks for letting us know.

Jason, thanks for the offer. It’s a bit late for us and a bit off route. I think we are not gonna make it.

I may be interested.. can you tell me the length of the trip? What is your typical day to day? Would the crew be responsible for any expenses?

Sorry, you are a year too soon. But if you hang around I'll get there eventually.
