sv ALVEI Experience the Life of a Traditional Sailor

Alvei7+:
July 2016

Hello

We have been sailing Alvei throughout the world’s oceans from 1995 to the present. We have logged over 200,000 sea miles and stood watch with over 500 crew. Now and again it becomes time to put Alvei away and do something different. This is one of those times. We will return to New Zealand and Alvei in November 2016.

In the meantime we are looking for a few new volunteers to join the crew. We are usually about a dozen, averaging about six men and women each. We don’t plan it that way, it just works that way. The average age is twenty to thirty-something with a scattering of people in their forties to sixties. Volunteers also join us from all over the world. In fact, we’ve had as many as15 people from 13 different nationalities on one crew alone.

We have three categories of volunteer crew, short-term, medium-term and long-term. On the average about a third of volunteers are 3 weeks to 2 months, another third 3 to 4 months and another third 1-2 years. Once a person accumulates one year of service (either continuously or several shorter stints) they are eligible to sail on Alvei at any time, free of charge. Preference is given to longer term crew.

Long-Term Volunteer Crew Anyone wanting to learn the way of a tall ship sailor would do well to sign on for a year or more. Sea Time will be officially documented and applied toward earning sea time credit towards certification. Once booked, many have pursued lifelong careers at sea based on their experience on Alvei.

Medium-Term Volunteer Crew Many people, who find their way to us through Crewbay.com, tend to be keen on tall ship sailing and stay between 3 to 4 months. This is also a good option for gap year studies or retirees who have family or other commitments back home. Many return for successive seasons.

Short-Term Volunteer Crew This option is available for the average backpacker or similar traveller looking for the next island adventure. The typical stay is between 2 weeks and 2 months while sailing interisland in the tropics.

Both long and medium-term crew can include an approximate 4 to 5 week open ocean voyage to or from New Zealand.

2017 Itinerary
• November and December mark the last two months of our 2016 season. This is a good time for potential watch leaders to join the crew and gain hands-on learning/teaching experience guiding and directing less experienced crew. We are looking for potential watch leaders here.

• After the Christmas holidays we continue welcoming new crew and finish maintenance projects such as bulwark repair and painting, tarring the rig, sail repair and caulking the deck.

• Training begins in earnest in early March with lessons on sail and line handling, steering, lookout, watch standing and galley maintenance. We will need a solid 4 weeks of work, from all the volunteers, to prepare for sea. All crew should plan on being on board no later than March 1st.

• We set sail in April for the southwest Pacific islands. Specific destinations are yet to be determined as we generally choose where to go and what to do based on where we are needed most. Possible destinations may include islands from Tahiti, through the Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji and Vanuatu.

• In October, we’re bound for Brisbane, Australia for our regular haul-out maintenance. This is 3 weeks of intense but rewarding work, scrubbing the bottom, replacing zincs and painting. This becomes an intense work time with a blow-out party at the end. There is no daily rate charge during the haul out time.

• Then it’s back home to New Zealand for the summer maintenance season.

No one is required to perform jobs they are not comfortable with, such as working aloft. We can accommodate up to17 volunteer crew.

It requires knowledge, experience, time and practice to learn the way of the sea.
Patience and a resilient sense of humour help when mastering the sometimes unexpected events of the day or night. Learning can be gained from reading books by working with your shipmates.

Along with that it can become a time of reward and accomplishment. You will learn things you didn’t expect to learn. (That is where the sense of humour part comes in handy.) And you will definitely have many stories to tell along the way.

Timbercoast

Sail Cargo Expedition - Honduras to Azores

Crew wanted: Delivery Crew
Vessel: Tall Ship
Size:44 m
Location: Honduras
Destination: Portugal
Logged in: 51 minutes ago

Timbercoast: We provide wind-powered cargo shipping. Our 1920’s schooner AVONTUUR is sailing in European and Caribbean waters as a tramp cargo service. The AVONTUUR is the missing link between the sustainable producer and the conscientious consumer. The statistics are clear, the current 90,000 plus container ships are destroying our oceans and spewing toxins into our atmosphere. In order for this global dependency to change we believe there must be a collaborative and viable alternative solution.

There is a shared cost to this voyage which includes chef cooked meals, port dues and harbour costs. There's the opportunity to sail onward from Honduras to Germany. Inquire within.

Embark January 30th in Puerto Cortes, Honduras*
Disembark March 16th in Horta, Azores

*Weather dependant

No Professional Crew positions available at this time.

TallShipSkip

Tall Ship Cruise

Crew wanted: Deckhand
Vessel: Tall Ship
Size:100 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Local sailing
Logged in: 3 days ago

TallShipSkip: If you've always wanted to sail in a tall ship or looking to develop your tall ship skills - this is your chance. The company SYDNEY HARBOUR TALL SHIPS has three historic sailing ships and a wooden ferry which cruise regularly on Sydney Harbour and occasionally offshore. Our job is to share the excitement and romance of tall ship sailing and the delights of Sydney Harbour with local and international visitors.

We are looking for crew who love working with and serving people. Enthusiastic and willing to learn. Not afraid of heights, since part of the job is 'laying aloft' and furling the sails. The job is multi-faceted and every day is different - excellent customer service is paramount and a high regards for cleanliness. You will be serving food, serving at a bar, sailing the ship and doing some maintenance jobs. You have a friendly nature, are responsibly minded and enjoy the satisfaction of making people happy. Sailing experience is valued but definitely not essential - your willingness to learn is more important.

Non smoking policies apply at Sydney Harbour Tall Ships.

An Australian Holiday Visa or Working Visa are required. Crew are also required to obtain a NSW RSA (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) certificate. This can be obtained online at http://www.hia.edu.au/responsible-service-of-alcohol/new-south-wales.com.

If you're considering a maritime career or just looking for adventure and enjoy being part of a friendly community this is a great opportunity for you.

Live-aboard positions are available (with all meals provided) plus $150-$250/week. Please send an application with your CV and photo to Capt James Parbery.
