I am an experienced sailor with over 100,000 miles mostly on large private yachts. My own boat is Misty Blue 50ft Gulfstar CSY Sloop. There is a V double forward for crew who would like to come along and help. I need one person with sailing experience, that could be one of a couple, not get seasick, a passport, but importantly a good attitude, willing to learn and have fun. I'm looking for people who are interested in the complete trip to Australia.
We will share food expenses. I’ll cover Fuel, dockage, cruising permits etc. You would need to get yourselves to the boat in Puerto Rico.
I'm sailing Misty Blue around the Caribbean and across to Australia over the next 18 months. Cruising VI's then direct to Grenada in May. Cruising West then through Panama Canal November. Costa Rica, Cocos, Galapagos. ETA Marquesas June 1st. ETA Brisbane Oct 1st.
If you are interested add a reply and I’ll send you further details via email.

Hi Captain Wansbury,
Happy New Year!
I would like to join you, first in PR
. I know SVI well since we (my Wife and I ) bareboat charter from Sail Caribe (Puerto del Rey Marina) few times.
My longest passage was (as a crew) from Kauai to Sausalito bringing back Bavaria 42 after Transpac.
We own and sail Catalina 27 on the Chesapeake Bay (just this weekend, yes it is cold).
Please let me know how I could get in touch with you and what else you want to know. I heard that you have extensive experience sailing Royal Huisman. Would love to hear about that.
