Australia, Pacific potential long-term crew wanted

I'm looking for a crew member to share the trip from the Sydney Australia region (Pittwater Bay) initially around Sydney and then north up the east coast to the Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef and Cairns. At that point, it will be a joint decision to choose the next destination which could be New Caledonia and Polynesia, Indonesia, continue to circumnavigate Australia or many others. My long-term plan is to slowly go around the world.

The boat is a 2006 Hylas 54 which has been well outfitted and has had an extensive refit to bring all systems back to full working order. Safety equipment including a new EPIRB, life raft, VHF and HF radios, AIS, etc. are onboard. The boat has a large battery capacity, solar panels, genset and water maker, refrigerator and freezers along with large diesel fuel capacity to be self sufficient for long trips. There is a full inventory of sails and sail handling equipment including electric primary and secondary winches, mainsail boom furling, roller furling genoa and staysail and code zero and a downwind spinnaker with pole.

I'm looking for an enthusiastic, adventure seeking and physically fit man or woman with offshore experience who is ready to share in all aspects of the voyage including watches, navigation, weather analysis, cooking, cleaning and daily maintenance.

As crew your opinions will help shape the voyage plan. You will be expected to share in sailing, watchkeeping, boat maintenance and most other onboard jobs.

It is expected that you will pay for your own onshore expenses and share in any sightseeing costs for onshore excursions you participate in. You will also contribute your share towards on-board food, fuel and mooring/docking costs and will be consulted whether we anchor or incur the expense of a mooring or marina.

Being safe, having a good time and enjoying the adventure are the most important priorities. I expect you will respect the authority of the Captain but will suggest a better solution to a problem if you think you know one. We are all learning and thereís lots to know about sailing.

I am a 60-year-old man and have recently retired from the IT industry. I'm now ready to embark on my life-long dream to see the world by sailboat taking the time to fully enjoy the trip and destinations. As much as possible, passages will be planned to take advantage of good weather windows and no unnecessary chances will be taken. It is important to me to have a happy, fun crew wanting to explore new destinations, cultures and experiences.

My experience includes extensive sailing during my youth with CYA (now Sail Canada) sailing certifications including instructor certificates. I taught sailing for many years and races extensively at a high international level. More recently, I obtained Sail Canada cruising and navigation certifications and IYT International Certificate of Confidence certification. I have been living aboard and sailing in Australia Pittwater / Broken Bay / Tasman Sea region since mid January 2020.

Outside of sailing, I also enjoy SCUBA diving, hiking, and nature and prefer off the beaten path locations.

If you are interested in the crew position, please contact me by personal message on this forum and we can exchange contact details.
