Hello.... we are departing Opua NZ around mid April and we are looking for one or 2 crew for the passage
to New Caledonia
. There is a possibility to continue on to Vanuatu
, Solomon. New Guinea, Timor and then Singapore
It is important that you are flexible with time as nothing is worse than beating into headwinds to try to catch a pre booked flight.
is a 50' Beneteau
, and has recently undergone major upgrades (electronics, mechanical, etc) and is very seaworthy
. Last year we sailed her from the Carribean to NZ. Both the skipper
and I have our Yachtmasters (offshore, instructor certificates) and both of us have independently clocked up thousands of sea miles (mine as a solo sailor).
This is not a paid position: we split food
and marina costs and individuals are responsible for entry visas to various countries. All boat repairs
is covered by the skipper
(and his wife who will not be sailing this leg).
Naturally, any sailing experience would be preferable, though not essential. If you love the sea, probably don't get seasick, eat almost anything, don't smoke or do drugs ... then respond!
