  • Description


    We sail the Pacific Islands helping out where needed to help the island people and the environmental challenges they face. In our lat 8 months in the South Pacific we have noticed tremendous coral reef devastation. Mostly bleaching from the oceans warming and the after affects of greater predator to coral ratio finishes off the job of total destruction. So we are now on a reef regeneration project. Coral Gardening.
    Part of that will be sailing a Hollywood film crew to some of the most pristine reef gardens on the planet for two months. To join us on that job, we'll be looking for a cleaning helper in one person as we are tight on space with a film crew on board. It will be hard work but meaningful, interesting and rewarding and surely fun. You will get to dive in amazing places and live aboard with Hollywood film stars and environmental activists. An important requirement is that ou don't get seasick and knowing a bit about sailing and being at sea would be helpful.
    Before that however we are re fitting our ship this month Feb and March in Vuda. Not far from Nadi on Vitu Levu.
    We will have the boat on the hard (out of the water) and need a good carpenter to help us redesign some spaces.
    Building in boats is challenging because of all the curves and tight spaces so fine cabinet making skills would be needed. We will provide food and housing Off of the boat. If you are capable and interested in either or both of these positions on such short notice we look forward to hearing from you. Thanks. Ari

    while on the hard we'll be in a small cabin shared with us and while on board we'll be at sea with a film crew

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Nadi and Latoka,the nearest towns to Vuda are quite interesting towns with beach access and markets and a rich Indian Fijian culture. We have bikes you can ride there if you are fit or want to be. While in Vuda we will be focused entirely on getting our refit and new masts installed as quickly as possible. Once out of there we will be planting coral gardens with the South Pacifics leading scientist and pioneer in coral gardening and later workin on a Hollywood film about reefs and sailing to glorious dive sites with great vistas for good footage. There won't be much time for getting away while at sea. You kind of have to be in for the whole experience if you sign up for this. Of course there are days we'll be at places you can explore on your own if you like but mostly its a solid teamwork experience.
