I think you are assuming that the crew for some reason is not capable or not willing to be responsable for these expenses and then this responsibility will surely fall on the captain. It's not like your being hired to do the passage, this is an opportunity to do the passage and you agree to pay for your fair share of the expenses. I've done this a dozen times and looking forward to many more opportunities. Glad I'm not sailing with you.

I understand the situation only to well.

You are entitled to voluntary do as you do, but it's not mandatory and inexperience crew need to be aware of their rights when dumped in a foreighn land. Their lives could be at risk as well.
