Crew position wanted to Fiji or Tonga May 2015

Recommended Posts

Hey there!

I've taught sailing for 2 years in the Marlborough Sounds with Outward Bound, but I've never sailed offshore. I am free for all of May 2015, and would love to head to somewhere in the direction of Tonga. Would go from anywhere NZ.
Already have my flight home.

I'd also like to try a coastal passage before that to see how I fare.

Cheers, Thom

My relevant qualifications include:

NZ Boatmasters

Marine VHF Operator certificate

PHEC (advanced first aid)

Marine firefighting

400+ hours launch driving

Outward Bound's internal Launchmaster qualification (Maritime NZ audited) with endorsement for night-ops

Hey I'm Lindsay from Canada (29) looking for the same thing! 


Ready to leave April / May headed to any of the pacific islands, from anywhere in NZ.  I don't have much experience sailing but I have done a fare share in and around Vancouver plus the Caribbean.  Ready for the next adventure :) 


I have worked in the service industry for 12 years, I can cook, clean, launder, do hair and makeup, effortlessly run a household so whynot a boat?!  Plus I am a scuba diving instructor.  Let's go!

Did you find a ride mate. I'm certain there are a few yachts up here in Opua that are looking for crew otherwise Doug takes Seeka up to Tonga every year. He's a good captain, fairly chilled. Not sure you can expect a lesson in nautical sailing techniques (?) but you'd get the experience. 

Most the boats are leaving in the next couple of weeks.

Best of luck mate,
