Crew Wanted.

Hello Crew,
I am cruising from Cairns, Qld. to the Gold Coast to be there by Christmas. It will be a leisurely pace, island hopping, swimming, snorkeling, etc.
I am looking for good, fun crew, non smokers, no dietry issues (unless for health reasons) with or without experience though must have the right attitude and a thirst for fun and adventure to commit for at least 2 weeks on a contribution/share bases. l am very experienced, easy going and not in a hurry though may do a few overnighters. In other words I'll/we'll take the time to expore the islands on the way and make occational landfall to reprovision, fuel, crew charge and meet the locals at their watering hole, etc.
Should this be your cupa tea and give you food for thought please message me anytime for more details.

Everything we hoped for.


spoke to Alan via crewbay and a quick phone call to get a feel for plans. Made arrangements and a rough plan. Very laid back and easy to deal with, we were unsure of how long we could stay on board but that was no problem. Had the best time, fantastic sailing, great company, perfect mix of laid back along with still keeping busy and exploring. We stayed for 6 weeks in the end and will be back on board whenever we have the opportunity. Should also note that Alan is a genius in the kitchen and provisioning, as arranged we made a monetary contribution which would cover our expenses and we ate so well on board. Cant emphasise enough how well we ate every meal, this in itself was value formoney let alone all the amazing places we visited. As a wanna be sailer alan also allowed myself and partner to further our learning and take charge of the boat some days and was a great source of kniwledfe and happy to share. We had a great time and can't wait to come back! All together a great guy and wish you all the best! Ps we just quit our jobs and will be driving north in 2 weeks. Will be in touch! ? Thanks alot Alan
