I will be doing these passages without my wife and therefore need some extra hands. The passages will take about 2 months from Indonesia to South Africa with a total distance of about 3600 miles.
Departure will be on September 21st and arrival in South Africa is scheduled for mid november.
Total stay on board would end up at around 2 months. Some experience is required and that should be at least competent crew equivalent since there is no training involved. As soon as we sail out of Indonesia, we are on the first passage and we don't turn around.
The ship is an Amel Super Maramu, 16 m Ketch which has been fully upgraded and modified by myself. Crewing is based on shared cost for provisioning only. Fuel and ship maintenance costs are mine. You will have to organize and pay for your own transportation to get to Indonesia.
Just drop me an email with a short description of your experience and references if applicable. Only serious applicants will be considered.
I will be flying home from South Africa for 1 or 2 months and if all goes well, there will be an opening for the next legs as well. That would involve rounding Cape Hope and the passages towards the Canary Islands from South Africa via St Helena, Ascension Island, Cape Verdes and possibly NW Africa.
