Morg: Life on board requires humility and respect.

Responsible people who can bring some special knowledge, and who are looking for life's big adventures.

I'm not a high risk-taking skipper and want to have a crew that not have problem with drugs or alcohol or have a criminal background.

science and surf under sail

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:37 f
Location: Mexico
Destination: French Polynesia

JezzaG: To Spread environmental info thru travel, sport, art and day to day life with locals as we sail through the South Pacific. I think there are plenty of people preaching to the converted in the major arteries of society but, I/we can provide the conversations and the divestment of info and understanding through to the capillaries...like a street performer, a busker of citizen science.

Science and Surf under Sail is an organization in it's very most nebulous form...I offer it to you to mould and shape together with me.

The general concept is to have a two year cycle through the South Pacific from Southern Baja to New Zealand and back. To have that route posted on a web site in order to attract surfers and marine/environmental students to share in various legs of the journey. We will be willing to deviate from our posted track to suite the purposes of guests based on the merits of their research or activity. I would like to travel in a small armada of sail boats in order to host a larger group of guests and achieve a wider sampling or observation or just plain fun. I would like to have the added dimension of this endeavor to be a sort of correspondent based webisode reporting on environment activities and how the are affecting people and how those people are responding to these environmental impacts on their homes and villages. We would also have a sport report, leisure and fun as well as art and food.

I am good at picking up work as I travel in order to fund my own way. I am presently working as a captain of a high tech power vessel for the rich and famous here in Cabo and La Paz, Mexico. I am also a carpenter/joiner, designer/sculptor...good with my hands and can make most of our day to day maintenance and repairs...mechanical, electrical, plumbing, an understanding of our shipboard systems. Now, I want to create a meaning greater than just my own experience and fun...I am no philanthropist but, I see a way to put back, to give back and have fun doing it. I'd like help...participants as partners and crew.

There's a non-profit, A truly non-profit living that can be achieved. Like the pirate ships, environmental privateers of Oceanic equanimity, we'll share the take equally and one extra for the ship. Should we be somehow fortunate enough to make more that we need it gets forwarded on as the partners and crew deem fit...now I am a dreamer...Hey? But, I think it is an imperative that all of us thinking, concerned people that call the seas and oceans of this World "home" become informed, educated and engaged or we truly risk loosing the last bastion of freedom. I can see the technology fast gaining the ability to monitor every moving thing in every remote corner of our planet and once the illegal commercial activities are under control then, yours and mine, our simple activities may come under scrutiny...and it might even seem right to require licenses and permits and fees and charges to move about or live off the land or sea as the case may be. So, we can not become unworthy or irresponsible or complacent with our current freedoms to move about the place.

Many thanks for reading this roughing out of my thoughts but, the final draft will be based on all the input from the founding members...My warmest regards, Jerrid of the "Quo Vadis" 37' Snowgoose, cutter and the "Salvation" 45' wooden Bermuda cutter, ketch a Jim Swanson design I would like to save, needs work.

There is more i would like to add to this, a conversation without end but, for now...A simple and genuine "thank you" for your interest and all the responses to date. It is good to see how many folks are concerned and keen to participate. I work as a captain on a private vessel, I am looking for my line of succession for that roll as I look to the South Pacific.Other characters I would like on board: A marine biologist correspondent, a ocean sport correspondent, web development volunteers, camera type person, maybe a producer type person would be nice, shipwright/carpenter type persons...Seafaring folk, other captains and small ships under sail. Many thanks again...

Size:37 f
Location: United States
Destination: Bahamas, The
Logged in: 25 minutes ago

SVSatori: Seeking experienced and/or interested crew for passage from West Palm Beach or the Bahamas to Bermuda for the Americas Cup Races.

Satori has being undergoing extensive refitting of a couple of her key systems, as well as the addition of 200W of solar panels in WPB, and will be ready and is heading to the Bahamas soon!

From there the plan is to either head back to WPB and then to Bermuda or possibly to sail straight to Bermuda from the Bahamas. After that back to the US and N for the summer.

If the fit is right the opportunity to crew aboard Satori is open ended.

Vessel: Power Boat
Size:25 m
Location: South Africa
Destination: Maldives
Logged in: 28 minutes ago

CAKEHEADS: I am currently exploring the possibility/options of adding an extra team member for a Cape Town to Maldives crossing. Ideally I am looking for someone who is keen to exchange scuba diving instruction in the Maldives and deckhand/stew duties for crossing hours & experience aboard a 25m power cat. Current crew is South African & Australian; young, sporty and enthusiastic. Owners are active. Boat was purpose built for kite surfing in remote locations. The position is short term (approximate 2.5 to 3 months) with the potential to extend further to Indonesia if arrangement is working well for all parties. Non-smokers only. If you are interested in opening a dialogue, please send me your resume.

CaptJezz

A Smaller Super Yacht

Crew wanted: Deckhand
Vessel: Power Boat
Size:55 f
Location: Mexico
Destination: None
Logged in: 41 minutes ago

CaptJezz: This is a volunteer position ideally suited to a waterperson, that would perhaps have plenty of unlogged sea time and experience with private vessels on an amateur basis and would see this position as a step-stone towards a career as a paid Capt, engineer or crew. I capt. this vessel for a private family that enjoy long weekends or vacationing down here on the Southern Baja. We trip between La Paz and Cabo for the most part with some runs up to Loreto or out to the local Islands around La Paz.

In Cabo we prep the vessel and typically pilot the boat for the owner, family and guests for day trips, sunset cruises, etc… In La Paz, we prep the ship and the owner often pilots themselves for a weekend aboard in a quiet bahia anchorage, we then cast off and catch. The work we do apart from cleaning and polishing and keeping the vessel in Show Condition also includes; basic engine maintenance and service, the watermaker, gen-set, other filters and seawater strainers, electrical and electronic maintenance and service. We strive and succeed at having a state of readiness and presentation with little or no unanticipated down time of the ship, anticipating problems. We also do the airport run and other odd livery services for the owner and guests and maintain that vehicle. That’s the big picture.

This ship is on the Smaller side of the “Super Yacht” but, that means we wear many hats. Your part would be focused on the deck work underway, watching out for people/kids as they might move about the boat, participating in cleaning and polishing, bottom scrubbing and participating and gaining experience in other repairs and service as time permits. This is not a fishing boat, you must be housebroken. While we do not typically provide “Silver Service” you should know silver service exists. You will also get some time and experience at the helm. I will do what I can to make this a valuable experience, indeed a step-stone.

Room and board are available, modest. We have accommodation ashore in both places. There is typically plenty of time between the action and you should be able to enjoy the local flavor. We have, available for your use; a quiver of surfboards, dive and snorkel gear, we have our own dinghy’s one w/10 and one w/15hp, we also have a 37’ sailing cat (needs some work). On work days expenses will be provided for. In many ways this is a family affair so, we enjoy sharing meals, a drink or 2 and hope you’ll fit in with that sort of thing.

I have a 3 month trial period on this but, it could be extended by mutual agreements. Looking forward to your responses. I am going to review application and make a decision over the next week and would like to move forward relatively quickly from there. Please be ready to travel on short notice.

Female crew wanted.

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:43 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Australia
Logged in: 48 minutes ago

Jethro: I'm looking for a lady, aged 25 - 55, as crew / friend for my next trip. You need to be fit, 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'll be going north very slowly, starting at the end of April and then 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, within reason, 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.

sv ALVEI Experience the Life of a Traditional Sailor

Crew wanted: Deckhand
Vessel: Tall Ship

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.
