SailingBula: Ahoy!

We just bought a boat! We are Melissa and Aaron, 1 Canadian and 1 Aussie, who would love some crew to join as we sail from Guatemala (Rio Dulce), through the Panama Canal, to Peru.... then off to the South Pacific Islands! Starting with Easter Island. In total we plan to sail 9 months back to Australia.

Right now we are looking for crew to join from Guatemala or Roatan who want to come through to Panama and possibly Peru and beyond if you'd like. Come for whichever leg of the trip interests you!
We plan to leave Rio Dulce around March 1st - depending on weather etc...

We are looking for crew who enjoy sailing, or want to learn! (no experience necessary) and are willing to help out with shared duties like cooking, cleaning and night watches on longer passages. We love to swim, snorkel, hike, and spend time outdoors exploring new places... and a couple beers on anchor are always fun! To share expenses we are looking for $100 per week (flat rate) to cover diesel costs, marina costs, repairs etc. For food we would all spit the cost and take turns cooking. Hoping to have 4 - 5 people total including Aaron and I.

Aaron and I met as crew on another boat sailing Australia and Indonesia and it was such a blast we want to share it with others. Let me know if you're interested! All ages and nationalities welcome, couples or singles!

Thank you!

One Crew Wanted, Ecuador and the South Pacific

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:44 f
Location: Ecuador
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 4 hours ago

Gillean Guy: Skipper on newer, clean, safe boat seeks one crew, short or long term, for trip from Ecuador to Tahiti with long stops in the Galapagos, Marquesas and Tuamotus. No experience necessary--will teach. I pay boat expenses, you kick in something for provisions. I would like someone who is adventuresome, willing to contribute to boat maintenance and upkeep, open minded, likes travelling to new places, can tolerate challenge and adversity and loves sailing, or has a keen desire to learn. I am fit, in good health (like to run when I can), don't smoke or use drugs, like a sundowner (or two), can accommodate others and provide references. I seek the same in crew. Female crew is preferred--a platonic relationship is presumed, but a romantic one, if mutually desirable, would be nice. Gillean is a 42' newer Valiant I had built for sailing around the world--strong, comfortable and fun to sail, outfitted with a full compliment of communications and safety gear. If interested, write to me at sailboat dot gillean at gmail dot com. Cheers!

Sea of Cortez and Pacific Mexico

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat

CapFelipeaus: Hello all, I am looking for interested persons, serious about joining me for the first leg of my Pacific Crossing trip back to Australia 2017. I will be looking to depart La Paz, Mexico aprox the end of March, start of April. Potential crew members would need to commit to 3 months, from La Paz Mexico to Tahiti, French Polinesia. Crew members will need to organise and pay their arrival to the boat in La Paz as well as their departure from Tahiti. Crew also need to make a financial contribution to the preparation of the boat, I can provide further details reflecting the costs of safety equipment more than anything for the trip. From this amount I will pay check in and check out costs includiong bond exemption costs for French Polynesia, fuel, as well as the installation of a 10 Gallons per hour water maker.
The boat is a 1977 36ft full keel ketch, recently refurbished, All safety equipment has been updated 2016 6 man viking offshore liferaft, certifed Nov 2016, full set of flares purchased Nov 2016, PFDs, 140 gallon diesel storage, 120 gallon of fresh water. I also have a Satelite device for messaging worldwide and for emergency communication.
I have been working on boats from 36 to 120ft for the last 7 years. Hold my Yachtmaster and Diesel engine certificate. In the five years I have owned the boat there is not a system or component of the boat I haven't taken apart and put back together again. I have made many improvements to the boat with this exact trip in mind.
Crossing from La Paz to Marquesas will take between 4-6 weeks, between landfall. With the remaining time spent exploring the islands on the way to Tahiti.
I would also be interested in discussing a longer commitment if crew are interested.
Crew would need to participate in all aspects of the operation of the boat, provisioning, cooking, cleaning, sailing, watch keeping. Previous sailing experience would be preferred but could easily be replaced by common sense and a good attitude to learning new skills. Having an understanding of what is involved in a long ocean passage is critical as once we have departed there will be no turning back for changes of heart.

Feel free to share this post with anyone you think might be interested.
