Default Crew wanted ... Darwin to the Kimberly Coast and back ...

My 42 foot yacht Travesty is at present in Gove in the Northern Territory in Australia. We expect to be in Darwin about the 18th of May after completing a 6 week trip from Port Douglas in Queensland.

We are planning to leave Darwin at the beginning of June for a trip down the Kimberly Coast and return to Darwin. The trip is expected to last about 30 days.

One of our crew needs to leave in Darwin so we are looking for a single person or a couple to join us for about a 30 day coastal cruise in the more remote areas of Northern Australia.

PLEASE NOTE: We are sailing a remote coast at the moment and will NOT^ have internet or phone signals or reception till after the 18th of May. I will respond to any emails at that time.

Male, female or couple considered. Cost is a contribution to food etc only at $20 per person per day.

Lex

Hi People,

A quick update ... Unfortunately we have had some problems so will be delayed for a short while. Blew out the head sail in a pretty bad squall and an hour later under motor had some gearbox problems. We are now at Elcho Island in the NT and waiting for parts to repair the gearbox and that could take a week or two as mail delivery here is kinda really bad.

At least I have internet reception here. Telstra is the only company that works here so my optus phone isn't much good to me at all.

I will send an email or two and get in touch with those interested when I know our schedule once our probs as sorted out and we know roughly when we will get to Darwin.

The Kimberly trip could now take 6 to 8 weeks or so once we get going.

Lexx

Hey Drew,

I could still be at Elcho Island then depending on how long it takes to get parts for the gearbox ... I have my own boat and will be heading up into Asia once the Kimberly trip is over myself.

I think the trades are here already, sure seems like it sitting here.

Thanks for the offer Drew, its much appreciated but once the gearbox is apart on monday we will know exactly what we need and it will be airmailed to us from Brisbane, there is mail service here although not very good.

I reckon we are pretty right for most everything else, just have to hurry up and wait for a while. I hear the fishing is good here a bouts so might give that a try tomorrow.

Howdy there,


Listen I've just been flicking through the threads here and noticed both you Lexx and Drew are heading to Indonesia this season and wondered when you might be departing Darwin?
I am a 25 year old teacher/musician/artisan from the Southern Highlands NSW, as it is I'm planning a world randonneur from Australia to Europe first stop Indonesia/East Timor. So if there is space for a cycling troubador on deck then I'd love to hear from you 0423588809.


Kindest Regards,
Aaron Wales.

Hi Aaron,

At this point in time I have no idea when I will be departing for Asia... got to get to darwin first, then do the Kimberly trip then back to Darwin and sort out things for the trip to Asia... right now thats months away and the longer range plan

One day at a time but eventually we will get there.

Lexx
