Smile Perth to anywhere for a month

Experienced sailor living in Perth and looking for a berth on a cruising yacht anytime and anywhere for a month.
Hi, I'm Colin aka Freespirit and feeling the strong urge to go sailing open water once more. My own yacht is still 18 months away from being realised and a break from the rat race is long overdue. Have sailed the East coast of Oz and Indonesian waters but am happy to sail in whatever direction the bow is pointing. Can take more than a month's leave if required, that is just a ballpark figure. I am strong and healthy for my age (just turned 60!) and can pay my way there and back.
Cheers
Colin

If you can get yourself to Singapore by early next week you can come with us. Its an Athena 38 catamaran going to Brisbane. The route at the moment (all things change!) is S'pore-Darwin-Cairns-Brisbane but hopefully a bit of "tourism" down the east coast. You can pm me for more info.

Hi Colin,

I am wondering where you are now? Did you get to Indonesia? Are you sailing with Jason? Did he get his boat?

What I have on my plate at the moment is the opportunity to sail a beautiful gaffed rigged schooner from Thailand to Hong Kong. I have had my own boat in Melb for many years but became more of a boat builder than sailor so I'm after an experienced bod to bring her back to Hong Kong. There is a lot more to tell but I'll wait til I hear of your whereabouts before going into detail.

Can you frop me a line please ?
Thanks
Helen
