Crew wanted Brisbane-NZ late Jan 13
2 crew wanted (to total 6) for delivery late Jan 13 from Brisbane's Scarborough Marina via Lord Howe Island to Opua, New Zealand by mid-Feb. Option then of cruising a few more days down to Auckland. No particular qual's necessary, but some previous sea time a must.

We appreciate a small contribution towards your own food & beverage, and any personal expenses, such as travel & Immigration. Otherwise all boat costs are covered by the owners.

Harlequin is a 5-year old Bavaria Vision 44. We've just cruised her 6,000 nm since Feb 12, from Hong Kong to Mooloolaba where she rests now, for lift & pre-departure prep. More background, pics, etc on our blog here.

Hoping for 6 crew for 3 watches, which makes the crossing less tiring and therefore more fun!

Only a month to go, so drop me a line soonest, if keen, to Thanks.

Australia/ New Zealand Sailing
Hi there,

My boyfriend and I are looking for a sailing trip this January through March. We are both wildland firefighters and have work off until mid March. I have sea experience working on a commercial salmon boat in the Prince William Sound as a skiff driver and cork layer, and Chris has a larger skiff boat off his land in Brazil. Neither of us have sailing experience, but we are very helpful and like to work. We are also both used to working all night shifts on fire operations. Chris is 40 and I am 34; we have been together for a year and a half. Both of us have been exploring the world for over 10 years and want to take on a new adventure.

I hope this holiday season finds you well.

Hi Jim,

I'd love to be able to help you out but unfortunately you'll be leaving about a month too early for me to jump on board. I'm just getting in touch so you know, however unlikely it is, that if things get delayed quite a bit for you, you have another crew option.

Cheers and best of luck

Thanks, Trevor. Unlikely we'll be delayed that long, but will bear you in mind if we are. J.
