Samoa to Vanuatu Aug/Sep 2014

Crew position available on CHIARA STELLA, 11.8m monohull steel yacht, cutter rig. New engine, new sails, up to date rigging, electronics & safety gear. I have just cruised from Sydney - Newcastle - Lyttelton (NZ) - French Polynesia - Cook Islands - Samoa and I'm now berthed in Apia, Samoa.

Leaving towards the end of the month or early next month. I'm flexible with dates but I'd like to catch at least the start of the Talua festival at the end of August. I may detour via Tonga (Niuatoputapu and/or Vavau) but won't be going to Fiji.

Having one (single) or two (couple) crew on board would be good for this part of the voyage. Experience desirable but not essential.

You cover your own transport costs, I'll pay for food and drinks (except alcohol) and fuel and other boat costs.
