North America to New Zealand

I'd like some information (including perhaps where else to post this message. I wasn't sure if Crew Wanted was appropriate).

I'm interested in crewing on a sail boat to NZ this coming year, I'd like some advice on... everything:
- I've heard there are a lot of crewing sites, and I'm wondering if someone might provide some insight to the better ones.
- How long might it take to leave from the West coast?
- Would it be easier to aim for Australia?
- Any other good resources for information on crewing someone else's boat?
Thanks for any help.

Good luck, I fear you will need it.
