34 days? Where did you leave from? I'd think a M65 would make that crossing faster regardless of where in N. America you left from.

I like it that you posted and did not leave a hanging thread.

Update: I've made it to Hawaii! Did the crossing to Hawaii in August with mild conditions on a Macgregor 65. 34 days. Great learning experience and I'm ready for more. Found work on Maui and looking for a ride on the next leg. Anybody going south west of Hawaii looking for crew give me a shout and we'll get to know each other.

Re: Crewing the Pacific.

You might try crewing on during some races. Some folks at the Nanaimo Yacht Club may be looking for crew.

Re: Crewing the Pacific.

Howdy. Thanks Killarney and Brent for the tips. As far as Passage experience Jack, this is how part of how I'm trying to get some; It gets a little tricky if you need passage experience to get aboard a boat doing a passage... If you've got any tips for a course I could take or another way to get this on my resume that'd be great. Thank yall again for the help.

Re: Crewing the Pacific.

Have you done a passage yet? You have good amount of experience, but a passage requires a whole different skill set. ISPA competent crew is a start; you need to build a stronger knowledge base as well.

Re: Crewing the Pacific.

Last time I was in Vavau Tonga in June, there were more boats looking for crew than available crew. The reason was they wanted extra eyes aboard, to navigate the maze of coral on the way to Fiji. May- June is the start of the cruising season there.

killarney_sailor Have a look at the Pacific Puddle Jumpers website. It is a clearing house for people going from the Americas to at least French Polynesia.
