We are a family of 5, 2 adults, and 3 teenage boys slowly working our way around the world. We are interested in joining you on your journey. We left California on September 13th and have been to Hawaii, French Polynesia, New Zealand and are currently in Australia. We have been housesitting and transferring vehicles around New Zealand and Australia. We are used to cramped quarters including a 3 berth camper van for 8 days. The highlights of our trip have been snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef and snorkeling and skurfing in Moorea.
Although we are novices at sailing, we think this is an important skill for our family to learn. We are all bright, quick learners and willing to pitch in at whatever we are called upon. This would be a fantastic adventure for all of us to partake in. We would like to sail around Indonesia, and Asia during the months of February and March and then the Greek Islands and Turkey in April and May. If you are crossing the Atlantic in August, we would love to join you and hope to have extensive experience by then. Let me outline our experience.
