Sailing Fiji - NZ Oct / Nov 2017

Crew wanted: Competent Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat

Location: Fiji
Destination: New Zealand
Logged in: 2 hours ago

SY Harlequin: Two crew slots available for our sail from Fiji-NZ late Oct / early Nov, via Minerva Reef.

We're looking for competent crew with some offshore experience, but just as important is someone who's game to muck in with trip prep and provisioning.

We ask for a contribution of about US$25 per day towards your own F&B - less, when we're actually offshore, when we are a dry ship. You’d also be expected to cover any extra costs ashore (the odd visit to pub or restaurant), your own travel to & from the boat, and any personal Immigration costs. All other boat costs are for our account, including boat clearance, fuel, marina fees, etc.

Please drop us a line if interested...

Bluewater-Sailing: You want to get off or are you already? Would you like to sail and live on a boat as a lifestyle? Are you curious, adventurous, want to discover a lot and get to know foreign cultures? Do you know that long-term sailing is at the most beautiful places in the world, to care for the boat and to repair it? Do like the sea like me?

I am currently traveling in New Zealand and Fiji and would like to have a like-minded partner on board.

Jetlag: After retiring from the Airline industry as a 747 Pilot I bought my Amel Santorin and decided to explore the world at a different pace.

Since I am mostly single handing I will be looking for crew to join me on certain passages around the South Pacific. Dates and destinations will be updated as positions become available. Most important is that the crew member is adventurous, easygoing and can work as a team.

sv ALVEI Experience the Life of a Traditional Sailor

Crew wanted: Deckhand
Vessel: Tall Ship
Size:38 m
Location: Fiji
Destination: Vanuatu

Alvei7+: July 2016


We have been sailing Alvei throughout the world’s oceans from 1995 to the present. We have logged over 200,000 sea miles and stood watch with over 500 crew.

We are looking for a few new volunteers to join the crew. We are usually about a dozen, averaging about six men and women each. We don’t plan it that way, it just works that way. The average age is twenty to thirty-something with a scattering of people in their forties to sixties. Volunteers also join us from all over the world. In fact, we’ve had as many as15 people from 13 different nationalities on one crew alone.

We have three categories of volunteer crew, short-term, medium-term and long-term. On the average about a third of volunteers are 3 weeks to 2 months, another third 3 to 4 months and another third 1-2 years. Once a person accumulates one year of service (either continuously or several shorter stints) they are eligible to sail on Alvei at any time, free of charge. Preference is given to longer term crew.

Long-Term Volunteer Crew Anyone wanting to learn the way of a tall ship sailor would do well to sign on for a year or more. Sea Time will be officially documented and applied toward earning sea time credit towards certification. Once booked, many have pursued lifelong careers at sea based on their experience on Alvei.

Medium-Term Volunteer Crew Many people, who find their way to us through, tend to be keen on tall ship sailing and stay between 3 to 4 months. This is also a good option for gap year studies or retirees who have family or other commitments back home. Many return for successive seasons.

Short-Term Volunteer Crew This option is available for the average backpacker or similar traveller looking for the next island adventure. The typical stay is between 2 weeks and 2 months while sailing interisland in the tropics.

Both long and medium-term crew can include an approximate 4 to 5 week open ocean voyage to or from New Zealand.

2017 Itinerary
• November and December mark the last two months of our 2016 season. This is a good time for potential watch leaders to join the crew and gain hands-on learning/teaching experience guiding and directing less experienced crew. We are looking for potential watch leaders here.

• After the Christmas holidays we continue welcoming new crew and finish maintenance projects such as bulwark repair and painting, tarring the rig, sail repair and caulking the deck.

• Training begins in earnest in early March with lessons on sail and line handling, steering, lookout, watch standing and galley maintenance. We will need a solid 4 weeks of work, from all the volunteers, to prepare for sea. All crew should plan on being on board no later than March 1st.

• We set sail in April for the southwest Pacific islands. Specific destinations are yet to be determined as we generally choose where to go and what to do based on where we are needed most. Possible destinations may include islands from Tahiti, through the Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji and Vanuatu.

• In October, we’re bound for Brisbane, Australia for our regular haul-out maintenance. This is 3 weeks of intense but rewarding work, scrubbing the bottom, replacing zincs and painting. This becomes an intense work time with a blow-out party at the end. There is no daily rate charge during the haul out time.

• Then it’s back home to New Zealand for the summer maintenance season.

No one is required to perform jobs they are not comfortable with, such as working aloft. We can accommodate up to17 volunteer crew.

It requires knowledge, experience, time and practice to learn the way of the sea.
Patience and a resilient sense of humour help when mastering the sometimes unexpected events of the day or night. Learning can be gained from reading books by working with your shipmates.

Along with that it can become a time of reward and accomplishment. You will learn things you didn’t expect to learn. (That is where the sense of humour part comes in handy.) And you will definitely have many stories to tell along the way.

Fiji to New Caldonia

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:12 m
Location: Fiji
Destination: New Caledonia
Logged in: 1 days ago

tganley: Looking for one crew member to sail from Fiji to New Caledonia around mid Sept/early October. Sailing experience is a plus, some assurance you aren't susceptible to sea sickness is an even bigger plus. I plan on kite boarding when I get there, if you are a kiter with your own equipment that's also a plus.
