Crew wanted from New Zealand to Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and Australia
I am looking for female crew to join me cruising from New Zealand to Australia, probably via Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and ? After Australia, we can discuss to option to continue.
Changing Spots is a Leopard 40 sailing catamaran, hailing from Vancouver, Canada. She is well equipped, in great condition, and proven for full time live aboard cruising. She was new when I moved aboard in Feb 2008.
I am the owner/captain, and usually have one other person aboard. There are no pets aboard (although sometimes I find a gecko - named Art - get it?).
The boat and I are presently in Whangarei, New Zealand, and plan to depart from Opua, NZ, late April, 2013 with a good weather window. After cruising Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and ???, we should be in Brisbane, Australia by Oct or Nov 2013. for a total of 6 or 7 months in paradise. After that is open to discussion.
Crew is expected to share or assist in all shipboard duties. She is also required to have some basic cruising and sailing experience. A sense of adventure and a good attitude are essential.
Crew is responsible for her travel and personal expenses, while provisioning is shared. The latter cost is dependent on desired lifestyle such as excursions ashore, eating aboard or ashore, and beverage selections.
I am responsible for all costs of running, and maintaining the boat.
