I am in Bali after a great cruise
up from New Zealand
, Solomons, PNG and Indonesia
and my crew has heard the call of the "real world" (i.e. a job offer) so I am looking for new crew to sail up through Indonesia
before setting out west across the Indian Ocean
. No requirements other than being enthusiastic, relatively easy to get along with and interesting. Age really is no issue.
Itinerary is fairly flexible but the timing would be leaving bali in mid-January to take advantage of the NE monsoon across to Sri Lanka. Passage
up through Indonesia would be a series of short overnights and day sails
and then some time in Langkawi or Phuket to prepare for the Indian.
No need to commit for the whole way across the Indian, through Langkawi/Phuket is OK, too. I'm a 33 year-old, pretty laid back captain
when it comes to getting along but I don't skimp on safety
or seamanship. This is a shared cost basis but, depending on how you like to live, it is quite affordable.
is a 1982 Skye 51, cruising equipped, and I have been sailing her around the world for the past 5 years. Couples welcome.
