Default bali to new zealand

hay guys im looking for a boat going from Indonesia to new zealand some time in the end of july.
im a 30 year old male.
i have no sailing experience but am a fast learner. i have been working as a white water raft guide for the last 10 years and have a sound knowledge of knots and rope.
i am a good cook and always keen for new experiences
im heading to indo for two months to surf then would like to sail home,
ive always had a calling for the ocean and think there will be a great life experience to spend some time at sea.

if there any one out there please contact me
thanks mie

Bali to Darwin at that time of the year is normal and finding a boat to take you from Benoa Harbour to Darwin at the end of all the rallies, should be possible.

However, at thet time of the year in the southern hemisphere, the south east trades are blowing strongly and relentlessly; which is brilliant for people wanting to get from New Zealand to Bali, but a real bugger for anyone wanting to go the other way.

Typically, the northerlies blow, making it a decent trip from Darwin to Thursday Island and down to Brisbane in November during the transition from the Dry to the Wet monsoon season.

It can be done, but it won't happen in one single, easy, downwind run. It will take several months, probably on a succession of boats and it will be wet and uncomfortable.
