San Diego to Mackay (OZ)

Two older guys looking for additional bod to help sail 43' from San Diego via Marquesas, Tahiti,Tonga etc to Mackay QLD.
Some experience preferred,leaving late April early May.
If you're prepared to contribute to food it would be good!

Re: San Diego to Mackay (OZ)

Hey Our Doug,

My girlfriend, Yaz (24) and I (25) are currently crewing with a 52' Amel Ketch and it's owners as far as the Society Islands in French Polynesia. We have crewed with another boat from Los Angeles and with this boat from Panama to Galapagos (where I write this from) and will leave this boat in July somewhere in the Society Islands in June/July.

We're happy to share food costs and will pay our individual expenses in terms of visas, etc. We're qualified to RYA Competent Crew level and have 2,600 miles and 200+ night hours logged so far although by the time we reach French Polynesia this will have doubled. We like to cook and are happy to clean and so on.

Send me an e-mail if you think you might be in need of crew from French Polynesia onwards: tom[.]harvey[@]me[.]com

Thanks,

Tom

Re: San Diego to Mackay (OZ)

Is there a chance you might be stopping in Samoa? I am hoping to make the trip from CA to Samoa sometime this year. Sounds like you are coming closer than any of the other posts I have seen on this sight.

Re: San Diego to Mackay (OZ)

Hi Tom,
tried to send this to the email addrss without success.....hope this gets to you!
apologies for the slow rate of response!
We are in the process of buying a boat in San Diego and anticipate leaving here in approx 2-3 weeks.
I'm not sure if joining us there is going to be a possibility but will keep your details and hopefully we can contact each other as we get close?

Re: San Diego to Mackay (OZ)

Good Day "Our Doug"

Sounds fantastic and i am interested. Would like to know where you will possibly be around mid July and if you would accept any passangers and crew from this point or if you only want someone direct from San Diego. When do you anticipate arriving in Marqueses. I am 27 yr old male from South Africa. Finish up my current job end of June after which i am looking at flying out somewhere to join a boat. I am new to this, but keen to learn, go along for the ride. Happy to contribute where i can. Am not a bad cook either. Thanks.

Hi, Teza,
thank you for your interest in our trip.
We expect to be leaving SD late April so may be a little early for you, however, stay in touch as things can change!
