Sail Mexico and then over to the South Pacific

Im looking for crew to join me and my 44ft Bruce Roberts Ketch on a little adventure. I have spots available from end of may/early june 2019 sailing the Tuamotu islands in the south pacific and heading towards either Tahiti for November or north to Kiribati and potentially Hawaii. I will spend at least two seasons exploring the paradise of the South Pacific. I would like to get off the beaten track and intend to spend time in remote anchorages in between returning to civilisation for resupply etc.

I am crossing the Pacific from Mid march so will be out of contact, but drop me a message here and I will get in touch once I have arrived in the Marquesas.

I'm a water baby so there are a number of toys on board including paddle board and a dive compressor. I expect to spend a decent amount of time underwater (hopefully you'll be divers/freedivers as well) as well as hiking the islands and experiencing the rich, diverse cultures and meeting people.

  • Boat descriptionWindarra was built in 1979 when they used fibreglass properly, as such she is a little weighty at 32000 lbs, but has an inch thick hull, is very stable and has a surprising turn of speed. Top side she is ketch rigged with a self tacking staysail on a hoyt boom. She has undergone an extensive refit since I bought her, including new engine, modernised the electrics, water maker, solar panels and other mod cons. She has a windvane installed, along with new liferaft, new EPIRB and Sat Phone. Below decks there are five berths with good bedding, two heads including a half bath, good sized saloon and galley with microwave and breadmaker. There is a TV and music system along with an extensive movie library and board games. She has a paddle board, new dinghy and is properly set up for diving.
