We own a 23 metre, 2 masted, 9 sails, wooden sailing boat and will be cruising the Indonesian Malucca islands (Tanimbar, Aru, Kei,Banda, Seram, Irian Jaya, Ambon, Halmahere, Ternate and Tidore etc. from Jan to April 2004 and then west through Indonesia to Malaysia, Thailand, Andaman Islands, Sri Lanka, India, Maldives, Madagascar and South Africa. We need crew to help us sail her for all or any part of the journey. We need a contribution of $500 per person per month which covers everything on board except alchohol. Contact us for more details.
Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm in Thailand on January 2nd, so could be possible to meet up. Do you have pictures or website with more details? My only question would be, how do you negotiate your sailing with the standard 60 day travel Visa in Indonesia?
I'm Canadian, 36, leaving from Toronto in about 2 weeks. Let me know if you're interested. The money is no problem.
I am reaching pretty far back here, panning through outdated postings for traces of sailing opportunities, but are you still looking for crew? Where are you currently? If not, do you know anyone in all of Oceania who is looking? Hope the adventures are wonderful...
