Hawaii to the Solomons and Beyond

True Blue III is a cutter-rigged steel round bilged Vancouver 38 built by Pheon Yachts in England. She has recently been refitted, is very strong and sea worthy, and is fairly begging to be taken off shore. You can see pictures of her on our blog - send me an email for the address of the blog.

We (True Blue, myself and two very capable women crew ) are leaving Campbell River, BC for Hawaii in mid May. I will be looking for additional crew to carry on after this passage. I plan to leave Hawaii for the Solomon Islands in late June, arriving in Torres Strait by September if the stars align.

As of yet, I have no off shore experience, but I have been with Coast Guard on the BC Coast for over 20 years, have done a fair amount of public assistance running a lightstation, and am a commercial fisher.

I thought I that would look for an all female crew, and am hoping that experienced women step up, but if I cannot find this crew, I will be happy to take along any capable, balanced, and sea loving person. Please visit my blog and contact me there if you are interested in joining the crew in Hawaii or beyond.

Alice

You guys have fun! I lived in Honiara for 2 years while in the Peace Corps - and traveled all over the Solomons (Temotu, Malaita, Vella Lavella, New Georgia, etc.). Beautiful place.

Although I'm a dude and couldn't crew for you anyway - I'd be very interested in following your journey. Please PM me your blog address.
