Default Crew wanted Sydney going north Jan 2015

Hey all...my girl and I decided to depart Sydney in aim of spending a year or three on our yacht and exploring this wonderful world of ours...we want to set sail around Jan of 2015 (so in around 3 months), going north as far as we can below the cyclone zone, then chilling whereever that may be till its over and continue north...aiming to get to Darwin for the Indonesia rally end of July....generally sailing intention is to hop from safe harbour to safe harbour without rushing but moving gradually north...
So, our yacht is a Pacific 38, which is a kiwi built version of a Compass 38, built like a brick shithouse so probably not the fastest yacht but very seaworthy and excellent sea keeping qualities especially in the rough....we're in the midst of re-fitting her, mostly cosmetic and will probably finish up in a month or two at the latest
Ideally we'd want 2 more people so that it would be comfortable for all, people that have sailing experience and ideally able to keep a watch etc...if you're not too far it would be good to go sailing a few times to get to know the yacht and each other etc...
As to us, were around the mid to late 30s, easy going, im ex navy etc so spent a few years at sea, we tend to enjoy healthy living but dont mind having a drink etc, we both dont mind rolling our sleeves up and getting the job done and looking for like minded people who are keen to go sailing and explore
Money wise, I'd be looking to equally split any food and fuel costs (fuel should be minimal)...but yacht maintenance costs would be our responsibility...things like alcohol or own pleasures would be an individual cost which I think is common sense Would be good if you can join us for the journey but we may have a friend or two come at various legs...anyhow happy to discuss any points, we don't have a specific plan, just a general direction to go so open to ideas and suggestions

My partner and I are currently working in WA on contracts ending in January 2015, and are looking to sail over to Indonesia with the Sail Indonesia Rally, if we can find someone who'll take us on as crew!

We are a 25 yo kiwi couple with some sailing experience, I grew up sailing and race in the Wednesday night twilights in Perth, and my partner Ben is a surfer who is very good at following instructions. We're both very easy going, and spent a year travelling the east and south coasts of Australia in our campervan, so are very good at living and cooking in small spaces. Find out more about us on our website Long Road to London | An epic journey across the globeLong Road to London.

Our hope is to find a boat for the Indo passage, and as much either side as possible. We would love to join you earlier, and maybe stay for some parts of the rally as well.
