  • Description


    We are Tom, Lauren, Megan and Sophie - a young family living on a sailing boat travelling the world.
    We are currently in the Galapagos preparing to cross into the Pacific Ocean!.
    Our boat is a Moody 46 cutter sailboat built in 1998. She is a safe, comfortable ocean-going vessel that we live aboard and call home.
    We spend our time moving from anchorage to anchorage, dropping in to villages and cities to explore as we go.
    We are a friendly family who speak English.
    If you are a positive, enthusiastic person who is willing to learn, can follow instructions, and would like to experience our way of life, we would love to hear from you!

    What better way to experience a country than by Sea? You will get to experience some of the most beautiful coastlines, towns, villages and cities on earth, not to mention to sunsets and stars at sea.

    You'll get to learn to sail our boat with us as an active crew member, how to navigate, perform maintenance activities and generally keep the boat shipshape.

    You'll also get plenty of time on your own to go ashore and explore!

    Our next passages are long ocean passages across the Pacific Ocean. You do need some sailing experience for this, it’s not for a first timer.

    We’re looking for someone to join us and help as crew. You need to be positive, enthusiastic, willing to learn and follow instructions.

    You'll be helping with the chores - engine maintenance, cleaning, provisioning and most definitely the cooking (you need to be able to cook).

    You'll also be sailing the boat with us - helming, trimming the sails, night watches and so on.
