I have previously advertised for crew on our 75' ketch
sailing from California
to New Zealand
. Due to delays in work
on the boat
we are 6 weeks behind schedule and as a result have lost
a crew member
. At this stage we are leaving in approx. 2-3 weeks, so if anyone is interested please email
me at james at booths dot net dot nz.
Here's the original post with the details:
Hankering for a serious offshore passage
Our 75' ketch
is currently undergoing a major refit
in Newport Beach
. When the work
is complete (expected mid-July, but some variability in that) we will be bringing her down to New Zealand
. We currently have 3 crew confirmed and require 3 more. The route
will be Newport Beach
as a possible waypoint), a few days in port in Tonga
, and then on to Auckland
. We are happy to consider crew just for the USA to Tonga leg.
We are experienced sailors who have spent many years cruising around the world, and we take safety
seriously. You will need to have some reasonable experience with offshore
sailing, preferably on longer passages. This is going to be a fun trip, but it's not for newbies.
We will cover costs of food
, and general boat
expenses. You will need to cover your own costs for getting to Newport
Beach and away from Auckland
, visas etc, and any on-shore costs. You will need to supply your own life-jacket, harness and weather
