Looking for some miles out of NZ

Hi there guys,

Just wondering if anyone can help me out with a little bit of info. I have been working for about a year for a South African charter company operating out of Table Bay, and though I gained much experience from sailing the two 60' schooners, "Spirit of Victoria", a traditional Gaff Rig, and "Esperance" a Marconi rig in Table Bay's unique conditions, I need to rack up some blue water miles. A full year of work got me 3000 odd.

I do have some bits of paper to go along with me; STCW 95, Limited VHF License, the dinky RYA Day Skippers ticket and have passed the Coastal Skippers Theory and Practical but ran out of time to do the Yacht Masters exam before I had to leave for NZ. Here is the question.

Where do the deliveries leave from? Some names of boat companies? Maybe some people i could contact? Any skippers reading this want a hard worker willing to go anywhere for any length of time? I have only been here a few weeks and have no idea where to begin. Thanks.
