Default Very Interested in Roarin' 40s...

Hello,

I am very interested if you're still looking for crew. The "roarin' forties" sound like a challenge I'd be up for.
I have 3 months blue water sailing in the Indian Ocean and some coastal sailing. I can cook, stay awake during my watches and can find my way around a boat.
I'm available Feb through mid-May this year.
Please let me know if you are still looking for crew the the NZ-F.Polynesia part of your trip. My email is: bowline*AT*nucleus.com.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Brent

Hi all,
I'm now looking for crew again for any one or more of the following passages this year (2014):

* Samoa to Fiji, departing August.
* Fiji to Vanuatu, departing late September or early October.

Dates are flexible. I want to be in Vanuatu no later than the 1st November, but I can actually fit in with crew dates around that. Let me know directly, via PM, or del@babel.com.au if you're interested.

Just one more heads up.

I am now looking for crew, departing Samoa towards the end of August or early September (2014) and heading for Vanuatu. We may stop in Tonga -- Niuatoputapu and/or Vavau group, depending on weather. Due to the dengue fever outbreak in Fiji and that I've already had dengue fever and don't want it again (it's worse the second time), we will not be stopping in Fiji.

Dates are flexible. If you're ready and able to depart Samoa in late August or early September I can be flexible as to what date we leave, depending of course on weather windows.

Final destination will be Port Vila, Vanuatu. The boat will not be continuing past Vanuatu this cruising season.

The good news is, medical researchers predict a viable vaccine against dengue will be available by 2016. The virus is spreading and it is expected that between 100,000 and 200,000 cases will be detected in Thailand this year alone. So far this year Fiji has recorded over 10,000 cases and incidences have been reportedly increasing in all Pacific countries including Vanuatu.

There are four strains of the disease and having one, does not provide immunity against the other three. In Thailand, I have contracted dengue twice. It is the only time in my life where I remember hoping I would die in my sleep.

Take care Del. I am sure you know the routine, but for those who do not: Wear enclosed shoes, socks, long trousers, a long sleeved shirt. Be particularly careful around dawn and dusk. The major carrier (Aedes aegypti mozzie) is more active close to the ground. Wear a good DEET based repellent.

There is no cure for dengue, but the death rate is relatively low. In undeveloped regions it is between 1% and 5%. Where treatment is available, it is less than 1%.

It is mightily unpleasant and is called 'breakbone fever' for a good reason. The mosquito, according to WHO, is the world's most dangerous creature. Bites account directly for more than 1,000,000 deaths per year. Worldwide, one child dies from malaria every 30 seconds.
