We are looking for crew to our 38ft catamaran. We are a young couple, 29 & 31 years old who have sailed the area before.
We plan to leave panama in mid of april and be in australia in october.

Panama, Galapagos, French Tahiti, Cook Islands, Fiji, Tonga, Australia etc.

Hi! How's going?
I might be interested in this travel plan, but I should anticipate a lot of things and home works, in fact I had planned to leave for my next trip in November ... but i am very interested in your idea that is one of my preferred travel plan, i'm working on it.

and so, my decision depends on months of travel, experience of the skipper and other things.

if you want to know more about me my FB is www dot facebook dot com slash beiusei, ask for a friendship.

i am new to this website, and i'll put my personal data later so here follows a bit of information of me ...

I am a world traveller in months journey and i did S.America, US and several other places.

My idea for the future is to learn sailing and get a licence, then experiencing and finally buy a low cost small trimaran.

Actually i am planning long travels months, i'm going to follow itineraries for Central America, Carribeans, South Pacific Islands, Western US National Parks, Southeast Asia and India.

I am a beginner in several watersports and landsports also.
I speak spanish, english and italian

Your itinerary is really interesting, but i wish to add salomon Islands and New Caledonia ... and then it would be the same as mine travel plan.

Looking at the date of your last response (or in this case, the lack there of to the two posts that follow it), I assume that you have most likely found the crew you are looking for. If not, I would be interested in talking to you about your plans/logistics concerning your wonderful adventure. At the moment I am 2 days away from leaving Chile where I have been living for the past 4 months (I am an American, by the way. 32yrs old and balding). My plan at the moment was to start making my way back to the states, back to New Orleans, my home away from home. But god dammit, this trip that you are proposing has far too much potential to simply ignore. That said, I could theoretically meet you in the Galapagos Islands as I will be in Ecuador around mid/late April. My only concerns are, of course, financial. I am curious to know what you project the costs to be for that length of time. Anyway, if you are still looking for bodies, please contact me with any questions you may have.
