Hi Thomas,

That sounds like a great plan. I'll let you know if I find anything promising.

Justin-

I don't own a boat, but I'm looking to crew one heading from the U.S. (or S.A.) to Australia.

I have some sailing experience and have recently completed a competent crew certificate.

Ideally, I could depart from the States around July? The departure date is quite flexible though.

Let's keep each other posted on any possibilities.

Cheers.

North America - Australia/ New Zealand, How can I join a vessel for this journey?

Hello Forum,

I was wondering if someone out there could please lend me some advice or guidance.

I am currently planning a shoestring budget circumnavigation of the world using only surface transportation. The biggest obstacle I am facing is finding a way across the Pacific Ocean. I was hoping I might be able to get pointed in the right direction of how I can go about getting aboard a vessel that makes this crossing. Perhaps I could take up temporary employment to earn a place on board? Where should I look to find vessels that make this journey? Any guidance or suggestions you could lend me would be greatly appreciated.

I do not have any sailing experience but I do have extensive travel experience. Over the past several years I have traveled and worked across Africa, North America, South America and Europe. I think I enjoy the hardships of the journey more than the destination.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Justin
