Hi Dione...

My name is James Dean...yes I know, I''ve heard all the jokes...I am a 25 year old Canadian from Vancouver BC. I have been looking for something interesting to do since I left Asia about this time last year. I was turned on to your hunt for a crew from my friend Lynnere, who as you have read has tonnes of experience sailing the ocean blue...or red, or green, depending on where you are I suppose...Well, I haven''t much sailing experiene this is true, but I have done some pretty tough jobs in my young life thus far, and I am certainly a quick learner...I was in Asia this time last year as I have said, I was involved in a sustainable development project there, where I lived in a small 3rd world community and adjusted to their way of life...I believe I can adapt to sailing and its pleasures and hardships as well...I have lots of excellent references and am a handy guy to have around I think...I am a student at current with a double major in history and english, and I am not the smoking, drinking, alcohol type...If you''d like to know more I would be happy to share that with soon I hope...take care and thanks for reading...

Ahoy Dione,
My name is Lynnere Henderson, I''m a Female, 26 years old, from Taranaki, NZ.
I have been sailing now for 3 years now, my first job was on board the R.Tucker Thompson, an 85''Schooner, we did charters out of Opua, Bay Of Islands and I was employed as cook, and shared the deck duties with the rest of the crew as they would help me out, a real good team to work with. All summer oct 98-april 99, a great summer season.
Three Daughters II was my second vessel to crew on, I met my present skipper Rebecca Gresham, she employed me as Nanny/Deckhand and I lived aboard Three DaughtersII, her 60'' timber ketch. We left New Zealand June 99 for Victoria,BC,Canada.
I took position as first mate for our trip, a great responsibility and challenge for me.
We sailed through Tonga, Western and American Samoa, and up to Hawaii.
I''ve great sailing skills, love a challenge and the outdoors, a great cook, no sea sickness for me, 8000NM up my sleeve and alot of great stories to share with others.
I do''nt do the drug and alcohol thing so you don''t have any worries in that department,
at the moment I''m still on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, working with the yacht I came here on.
I hope to hear back from you soon as I am egar to get back on the ocean an explore this wonderful place we have,
thanks for your time,
Lynnere Henderson

Hi. I''m a 42-year-old English professor getting ready to walk away from it for a few years. I''ve been planning to go cruising
myself, but your plan sounds great. I''ve spent four months offshore between Hawaii and the Society Islands (including a rough passage south), I''m a good cook, a decent sailor, I got along with a lot of different people (the crew changed a lot), and I''m interested in the sailing history of the Pacific. January 2002 would be perfect!

Little, but willing and very able to learn. I can offer many other skills to carry my weight.
