Default Sailing-Passage from Australia to New Zealand

Hi. I'm searching for a sailing-opportunity from Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane.....) to New Zealand in the time from 07.07.2014 - 21.07.2014 (time of departure).

I'm an 45-year young man, who is actually travelling around the world.

Sailed as a crewmember on a Leopard48-Katamaran from Capetown in 4 weeks to Albany (we have to deliver to Sydney, but the Autopilot wasn't working properly and the Chartplotter "lost his live"). My first experience in sailing ever. .....and then south of the 40's...

I've done my nightshifts properly, earned some experience in sailing, but i am far away from calling me a sailor at all.

You can take a look at my homepage: Holger und die Weltenbummlerei for more Information about me.

Would be great, to find a passage to New Zealand "Hand against Bunk".

My e-mail is holgi1268@web.de

Thank's a lot and....see you

Holger

Winter is not the best time to be crossing the Tasman, and so I doubt you will find a passage easily right now. I did the trip last December and it was awesome. Good luck!

Hi Haiqu,

yeah….i think it's pretty rough out there. It's worth a try, because flying to New Zealand is just boring. I could have easily book a flight from Capetown to Sydney, but hei……the sailing passage (it was my first sailing ever !!) through the roaring forties was amazing and an experience i will never forget. So…let's see. Maybe someone sails…...

It's not just "an experience you will never forget". The Tasman is one of the roughest stretches of water on the planet, especially at the wrong time of year. People die on that sea, most recently in June/July of last year.

It's the wrong place to be at the wrong time of year, although at least you will be going in the right direction. I love sailing on the Tasman, have been doing it for years, but I wouldn't be attempting a crossing in July.

@delatbabel: with "the experience, i will never forget", i meant the crossing from Capetown to Sydney......but i didn't knew, that the Tasman is that horrible in this time of the year. I knew, that it's rough. But like that....wow ! So i better forget about this. But thanks a lot for your info !
