Opportunities for yacht skippers/captains wanting to make a difference in the world
OceansWatch currently has 2 vacancies in the South West Pacific. This is a great opportunity for anyone really wanting to “make a difference” in the world and experience the fascinating remote cultures in Vanuatu.

We need 1 experienced skipper to deliver our 45' yacht from Whangarei (New Zealand) to Port Vila (Vanuatu) ASAP. The usual skipper also runs the OceansWatch charity and is snowed under with work so needs someone to help out for a couple of weeks to do the delivery. The boat is a long keel heavy displacement sloop. She has good safety gear and recent mechanical services. Rig 2 years old. A sound and solid yacht. Just need fresh food, top the tanks and she’s ready to go. 3 crew ready with some experience.

We need another skipper to take over our 34' yacht for research/aid work in Vanuatu for the season then return the boat to New Zealand. This is a beautiful yacht to sail, a Sweden 34. The current skipper has some issues at home that he needs to attend to so is having to get off the boat.

WE ARE A CHARITY, which means money is tight. We are negotiable but generally cannot pay a wage but do cover you food and may be able to help with travel or a small stipend according to circumstances. If you are in a position to be self funding that is really appreciated as every dollar we spend on a skipper is a dollar less for our valuable work.
