Adventure Cruise: Australia, Indonesia, Singapore and more!

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:47 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Thailand
Logged in: 32 minutes ago

GypseaHeart: Adventurous, highly engaged crew wanted to join me on an epic adventure.

This will be a proper adventure cruise. Our main priority is to have some serious fun while exploring a few of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Although no experience is required, I will need a lot of help running this new-to-me 47' sailing catamaran. Expect to share all sailing and live-aboard duties (cooking, cleaning, etc..) and just be all-around helpful.

There will be a lot of learning happening on this trip, both on my part and yours, so keep in mind that any set-backs are just a part of the journey.

Please be community-minded. This is a fairly comfortable cruising vessel (In my humble opinion), but it's still just a boat and we will all be sharing a decidedly finite amount of space for not-insignificant periods of time.

Enthusiastic personality is a must! This will be the trip of a life-time, so prepare to make the most of it!

Non-Consumer Based Cruising

PelagicNomad: Hey Pirates


I'm a minimalist who loves nature/water...and live aboard my gaff rigged Westsail 33 "Panthalassa" which I wouldn't trade for the world!

Never a fan of mindless gadgetry/consumerism/the throwaway society...my non-consumer based philosophy is evolving from books such as Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor, Voyaging On A Small Income, Sailing The Farm (downloadable in PDF for free), The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and a handful of other thinking nonconformists... The common theme is a functional, practical, simple and self-reliant approach, overwhelmingly crediting old/ancient designs, constructed with modern materials!

Also, where practicable, I'd like to stock the boat by bartering for organic, locally grown produce... And I dream about developing all things non-consumer based cruising as a group... To keep things simple/achievable...I'd like to start by working through the practical tasks in Sailing The Farm and The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and see where it goes...

Ok, so a little more about these books:

"Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor" by naval architect Czeslaw Marchaj compares modern boat design with those more than a hundred years old. In particular, he praises an 1894 North Sea rescue boat, designed by Colin Archer - which my boat is a fibreglass derivative of.

"Voyaging On A Small Income" by Annie Hill is about non-consumer based cruising - having no fridge, eating beans, celestial navigation, and combining old/ancient concepts with modern materials. A couple started with basically nothing at the age of 18, owned/voyaged on a couple of boats, developed a ruthless "cost vs benefit analysis" built their dream boat, and retired by the age of 28 in the early eighties, with enough finance invested to return 1,300 pounds pa, which they both lived off.

Sailing The Farm, by Ken Neumeyer is about "Seasteading":
"With a couple of hundred pounds of seeds, a few dried fruits and a solar still for fresh water, a family could sail around the world without ever having to make that long upwind tack to the grocery store for manufactured products shipped from half a world away."

This dude also teaches us to ditch refrigeration and make/use all kinds of simple, funky tools. The idea is, go organic, buy, forage, and/or grow food on an island... Dehydrate it to store efficiently. Aboard, grow a herb garden, wheatgrass and spirulina, while seeds are sprouted and eaten live. Eat seaweed. Make cheese, yoghurt, milkshakes, dips...with powdered milk. Rehydrate and juice dried fruits/berries. Grind grain and prepare all your food from scratch, daily, without removing or killing the goodness...

Emiliano Marino's family come from a long line of prominent seafarers. He understands traditional boats/handmade sails/real seamanship, and the value of a holistic approach... Entering a market where everything is designed to break, kinda broke his heart... So he wrote a practical guide to encourage self-reliance, called "The Sailmaker's Apprentice"

"I am still, fifteen years later, angered by the hype and ethics of the production sailmaking industry, and morn the general loss of traditional skill and artistry in sailmaking. Furthermore, I deplore a wasteful, thrill-seeking, exploitative economy of sails and sailing, so lacking in foresight except where making a bigger, faster buck is concerned".

Cruising the world again

Crew wanted: Friendship/Relationship
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:40 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Indonesia
Logged in: 5 hours ago

Sogno d'Azul: Having sailed singlehanded around the world already once I realised there is more... I am looking for a female companion to join me. The big thing I missed on my last tour was that there wasn't anyone on board to share the beautiful moments, e.g. a huge humpback whale just 5 metres off the bow, a gigantic school of dolphins playing around the boat for hours, or just the beautiful starry sky at night.

I have already sailed around the world once from 2009 - 2012 (mostly single handed) and if you want to know more about that adventure, just read my book: Dromen van Blauw. Unfortunately only available in Dutch language, an English update will soon follow. It will tell you a lot about me and the boat.

Jethro

Female crew wanted.

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:43 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Australia
Logged in: 10 hours ago

Jethro: I'm looking for a lady crew member for August onwards.. You need to be fit, under 50, healthy and good company. I don't have any expectations of an intimate relationship - not that I'm against one, but I'm more interested in finding someone to share my travels and help with sailing.

I'll teach you to sail (if you don't know how) and take you to the most beautiful islands and beaches in Queensland. I'm going south from Cairns very slowly and I'll decide where to head for, depending on the winds.

I have a cat on board with me, so you'll have to like them! I don't charge anything for food or boat costs and non-alcoholic drinks. All I ask in return is someone to prepare and cook meals and generally help on the boat. This is not short-term, so not suitable for a cheap holiday. Please send a current photo if you're interested.

Only 1 position is on offer.
