Hi there,

My partner and I are looking to sail from Australia to New Zealand and are wondering which is the most common month that people do this? Does anybody have an idea of how to get on board a boat that will be doing this journey, and what port it is most likely to be leaving from (eg sydney)?

We have basic sailing experience but really want to get into the community so we can stop taking planes and reduce our travelling footprint!

November through March are the most likely times that boats will make this trip. If you hit the various web sites and bulletin boards you'll find that there are a few boats making the trip prepared to take on crew. Also try marina notice boards, etc.

Sydney is the most likely point of departure but also Brisbane, Maroochydore (sunshine coast), Southport, Coffs Harbour, Port Stephens, and occasionally further south.

I am looking for crew for the journey myself but not until 2014 at this stage.
= New South Wales, Queensland,
