You need crew! Seriously. Think how much easier it will be with a capable young man to help you out when the going gets tough!
I'm an easy going, low stress, quick thinking and physically capable sailor available for a return trip to NZ in June.
on a 30' sloop
for five months last season and am very familiar with Tonga
with Take Two, a 40' catamaran
to meet offshore
experience requirements (cat-1 for NZ flagged ships) with a new cruising owner.
I'm starting a community project
in Vava'u and should be completed by early June. A mid to late June departure would suit me.
Can leave from Fiji
if needed but I will have to catch a boat
that way first (shouldn't be an issue with many yachts making that leg in June).
I have all my own gear
with me (life jacket, tether, PLB, Satphone, headlamps, wet weather gear
Reason for sailing rather than flying: I have a fair bit of kit with me and I would love to get another crossing under my belt! Don't worry most of that will be left in Tonga!
have advanced sea survival cert, offshore
medic cert and all the usuals. Am also becoming pretty handy mechanically. I had to install a new engine
while cruising last time. I did the install myself. (something about cruising being boat maintenance
in foreign ports
I like long walks on the beach and playing hide and seek with sharks.
Please feel free to get in touch with questions or if you have any harebrained ideas on how to save the world.
I WILL BE ON PASSAGE
FROM MAY 2ND TO MAY 10-12TH PLEASE TXT SATPHONE DURING THIS TIME.
