Thailand to the Mentawi Islands and beyond
I have one spot avaliable on my boat, Windarra, from Thailand to the Mentawi Islands off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. We will be leaving Thailand at the beginning of January from Phuket and expect to arrive around the 12th January. No experience necessary but you will be expected to be involved in sailing the boat. We will be doing a couple of overnight passages so you will be watch keeping at night. You will gave your own cabin and head. We will be continuing down to Lombok and beyond towards the end of Feb so there is potential to rejoin the boat for that leg as well. If you are interested drop me a message and we can discuss the details and costs.
The driver for this trip is to see as many of the reef systems of the world as possible, and given Indo has the best coral and marine life in the world we will be spending a fair amount of time underwater, so divers/freedivers are preffered, but its not a deal breaker as long as you are happy driving the dinghy while the rest of us go and blow bubbles. I have a dive compressor on board and one spare set of gear, you are welcome to bring your own if you have it. We will also take any opportunity to explore and experience the different cultures as we pass through the islands.
Im looking for people who want an adventure and are happy being at anchor and exploring away from towns (thats not to say we won't return to civilisation for food, fuel and a couple of beers though .) The areas we will be going to are remote so you need to be able to occupy yourself without the aid of an internet connection.
Sailing experience is not important but you need to have a willingness to learn and desire to get stuck in. All crew will get involved in cooking, cleaning and maintenance equally (its not all a sunbaked palm fringed beach holiday) and holding watches.
Drop me a message if you are interested and we can discuss the details.
