Lake Maquarie to Sydney Harbour and/or return

Looking for crew to join me on a sail from Lake Macquarie (NSW Australia) to Sydney harbour.
The Boat
Boat is a ocean rated 25 foot Contessa Yacht with inboard 15hp Yanmar engine and with relevant safety gear.

The Trip (first leg)
the trip will take place 26 or 27 dec 2014, weather dependent, expecting to take 12 hours of sailing and plan to stay overnight at Pitwater on the way.

The trip( second leg)

leaving Sydney harbour 2nd of jan, and expecting to stay overnight at Pittwater.

The Crew.
I would prefer someone with some sailing knowledge but the right attitude and willingness to do what it takes to complete this trip safely is the main requirement.
I imagine 3 to 4 people in total. Must be fairly fit and of good health. you can choose to take part of either legs of the trip or both, however own accommodation will be needed once we arrive in Sydney.
Looking forward to hearing from you
cheers
Brian

Cost will be minimal, just $100 towards shopping

Lol perhaps 100 is a little high. Maybe 50, is more like it, just wanted to scare a few backpackers away! Hehe

Hi Brian,

Interested in helping out on the return voyage. Have a dinghy racing background and fair bit of twilight yacht experience.

Will send you a PM.

Cheers, Dean
