Im looking for crew to help me deliver a catamaran from Grenada to Australia towards the end of January It is a very relaxed delivery as the owner only wants his boat in Oz in the second half of this year so I will be spending time cruising the South Pacific islands (Fiji, Galapagos, Cook Islands etc etc)
I am looking for two people with at least a little sailing experience (I am a former sailing instructor so I can work with relative newbies) As long as you can keep watch, know WHEN to reef and know the ins and outs of living aboard, then you're right for the spot.
You will be covering your own expenses (IE equal share of food and immigration costs) but I dont intend to spend a lot on food (dont worry, we wont be living off 2-minute noodles either)
The yacht is a South African built Rayvin 30 foot Catamaran, it is about two years old and is very sea-worthy as it has already crossed the Atlantic from South Africa to Grenada (+-5500 miles) and is well equiped with water maker, auto pilot, radar etc. Go to www.rayvinyachts.com
to check one out.
If your interested, gimme a shout
