NZ to Fiji 29 YOA Male Sep/Oct 2011

Hi All,

Looking for a position as crew onboard a yacht sailing from NZ to South Pacific Islands from mid September to end of October 2011.

I have over a years experience onboard my own 30ft yacht so am reasonably capable when it comes to basic boat handling, navigation etc.

Thanks Anthony 027 441 2262 Nelson New Zealand.

G'Day to both of you,

Not to seem negative, but your time frame is not likely to be a good one for that trip. Just the opposite will be happening: folks in the islands will be heading either to NZ or Oz at that time, for the 1st of November is the "official" start to the cyclone season.

You would have better chances of catching a ride at that time in Suva, Pt Vila or Noumea, heading for either NZ or Australia.

Cheers and good luck
