crossing the PACIFIC to NEW ZEALAND
Due to Corona Im now back in Germany visiting friends and family. Hoping to go back to sailing soon when conditions allow. Still wanting to cross the pacific to New Zealand. As in Germany now also flexible for other destinations, Africa, Norway, South America, India, Japan, Alasca, Mexico.. anything amazing :-)
I am Johanna, 31 yo from Germany traveling around the world. I am looking for a boat to cross and explore the PACIFIC partly or best all the way to NEW ZEALAND between beginning of March and April 2020. Also interested in crossing the PANAMA CHANNEL. Currently in Bolivia, i will first move South to Patagonia and then to Rio for the Carnival in February. Then I'm free and available to make it to New Zealand hopefully by sailing! So also if there are boats looking for crew leaving from VALPARAISO or anywhere on the WESTERN SOUTH AMERICAN COAST, this would be just awesome!
I've been sailing on Ponants and 4,70m boats on mountain lakes with the university and friends back home and hold a licence for lake sailing. Since December 2018 I have been sailing up and down the Carribeans between Guadeloupe and Grenada and then from Martinique to Panama and on to Ecuador and the Galapagos. For some months now I am travelling in South America on the mainland looking forward to go back to the sea with the new season. My goal is still New Zealand where I have a working visa for a year starting the 10th of April, so unfortunately on the 10th of April 2020 I really need to enter New Zealand at the latest. I did ask the authorities to postpone this date to cross the pacific completely (my big dream!!), so let's see what they answer. I am a medical resident in pediatrics (children's doctor on the way) back home and have worked in emergencies, so I might get in very handy for medical stuff and life support especially on longer crossings!
I am happy to help with anything onboard and am interested especially in the sailing of course! Vegetarian, but uncomplicated. ;) looking for great sailing, happy captain and crew and generally a good time. Easy to get along with. Also interested in charter work and deliveries.
Happy to hear from you!
Thank you and fair winds!
