    Description

    I am a retired American sailing my 13 meter sailboat around the world. I seek one crew preferably with some sailing experience to assist in sailing from Fiji to New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Australia, departing in April or May, 2021. My insurance requires that I have one crew on board for longer passages.

    "Gillean" is a clean, safe monohull. I have been sailing her for ten years and have voyaged 35,000 nautical miles, visiting two dozen countries and calling on more than 250 islands. I am looking for volunteer crew. I pay all boat expenses and provide meals, you pay for your transportation to/from the boat.

    Dates of travel and destinations are subject to evolving covid-19 travel restrictions, so flexibility with routes and time on board are required. You also need a valid passport good through 2021.
