  17. I'm looking for one or two crew to help me sail my 42ft monohull to Port Vila, Efate Island, Vanuatu, from Whangarei, Northland, New Zealand. My wife, kids and I have sailed from the UK, over 18,000 miles. They are flying to Vanuatu so I need some extra hands for the approximately 8-10 day passage. What I ask would be a contribution to food costs and a good amount of positive energy to bring to the trip and some sailing experience. It should be fun leaving the cold and getting to the tropics!
