Default Auckland to Tonga

Hi all,
I am cruising from Auckland to Tonga then on to Fiji departing Auckland around 25/06/13. I have room for a crew member(s) should there be anyone interested otherwise I will complete the passage solo. I plan brief stops at the Kermadec's and Minerva reef. The passage to Tonga should take 10-14 days.

The yacht is a 12m steel pilothouse cutter (Anna). Six berth, game rigged with a dive compressor. I have sailed the vessel around NZ solo.

I am a 49yo Master Mariner class 1 and a maritime pilot with thousands of nautical miles sailing (mostly solo) in Anna.

Please let me know if you are available and interested in this transit.

Wayne Turner

Hello Wayne,
Are you willing to take on inexperienced crew members?

Hi Wayne,

are you still looking for a crew?
Hope yes please, let me know because my partner and I are interested in joining you through Tonga/Fiji.
A brief intro:
Elisa, a biologist and a writer, but most of all a traveller. Italian woman with some sailing experience (as a passenger). Willing to help as a chef and also with maintenance, watchkeeping etc

Ugo, an italian chef and sommelier, a dynamic person willing to know more about sailing and to experience the life onboard.
We don't have any seasickness and we are really easy-going. We need to leave NZ before July and your dep. date is perfect for us

We look forward to hearing from you

Elisa and Ugo

Hi Elisa and Ugo,

Thank you very much for your offer. I have one definite crew member and one possible other. Unfortunately there is no room on board for you but you would have been very welcome.

All the best
Wayne
