What is your rough itinerary? I've got a wedding in New Zealand on the 9th of Feb to attend, so might not be able to join in because of that commitment, but if it were possible, I would love to join in - I am planning to spend the next 6 months or so in the Philippines diving and I can't imagine a better way to get there.
I am Jason - a 26 year old Australian. I cook, play guitar, dive, surf terribly and in general get along with most anyone. I do not have much in the way of sailing experience as of yet, but am very keen to pick up the skills as I want to make cruising a large part of my travels over the next couple of years. I am very fit and have a practical mind-set, so I am confident I'll pick it all up as I go.
Let me know if that works. It would be great if so.
