Florida to Australia
Looking for crew from Florida to Australia aboard a 50í cat. Departing around April 11th and arriving Australia around September 25th. Lots or experience not mandatory but must know for sure that you donít get seasick or that you can control it with medications and still function. Cooking skills a big plus. Ability to speak French also a plus. Boat expenses will be paid by owner but you will be responsible for alcohol and ashore expenses. Must be able to post the bond in French Polynesia. Airfare will be paid if you make the entire trip, will consider airfare for persons not able to sign up for the entire trip depending on how much of the trip you are able to make.

My partner Sarah and I are very interested in your trip. We are young but experienced cruisers who have been sailing together for much of the last year. We're used to cruising on boats that cook for each other, and cooking happens to be a favorite pastime for me. We just left the Caribbean and are currently visiting family in New England. We thought we might have to wait to next year to cross the Pacific, but perhaps we would be a good fit for your journey.

I see your catamaran O'vive has crossed the Pacific before, but the blog doesn't explain how the boat made it back to Florida from New Zealand. Are you the same owner that made that crossing?

Since you're not planning to arrive in Australia until September i trust you're planning to enjoy the Islands on the way over. I'm curious if you're itinerary will include the Galapagos and if you have a dive compressor on board. We would love to hear more about your plans and your crew.

You can learn more about us on, our member id is 149306. We would be happy to send over our CV's and references and suggest you private message us your email address.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Alex and Sarah
