Crew wanted for trip to Auckland and Tonga

Recommended Posts

We are off on a family adventure!


The plan is to sail from Wellington up to Auckland at the beginning of April and then leave the Bay of Island with the Island Cruising Association on 5th May bound for Tonga (via Minerva Reef if weather permits)


Kena is a Ganley Pacemaker (40ft, steel, cutter rigged monohull).


The family will join the yacht in Auckland for the trip to BOI, and then fly out to Tonga.


We are looking for crew for either or both legs of the journey.


Skipper has 10,000+ offshore miles and 30,000+ coastal miles. RYA Yachtmaster.  Kena was built to Lloyds A1 standard and will be Cat1.


Crew will need to cover all their own expenses and have a good set of wet weather gear, a Cat 1 compliant lifejacket, complete an Advanced Sea Survival course (For the offshore leg... RPNYC is running one in March), and maybe a First Aid course. More importantly though you'll be up for an adventure and have a well developed sense of humour. Great opportunity for mile building or just getting out there!


I have a couple of people interested already and I'm keen to get some sailing in before April so let me know if you are keen!
