Hi from New Zealand

Hi everyone,


I'm Frances (21), new here and to sailing in general. Me and my friend Lane are on the look out for an opportunity to learn. Just been doin a bit of harbour races around Auckland and loving it, now we're keen for a long distance adventure. We were thinking States to South America, or Pacific to South America, or South America to Pacific. But really we're keen for anything.

Like I said, we have limited experience sailing but are handy, competent under pressure and comfortable on the water. We are easy going but dependable, and are basically after an opportunity to learn to sail, for good company and good stories.


If you still have a position available on your boat for two novice sailors, are planning another trip, get in touch.

cheers.

Frances.

Welcome aboard Frances. This is a great site, with a few long distance cruising opportunities. You might check Offshore Passage Opportunities, and try to find cruises around your coast. Be careful to sail on well found boats with capable skippers, and try to do some sailing with them before committing to a long cruise. Or join a vessel sailing in stages so you can seperate if it's not working.
Be careful, have fun, and report back.
