Boat Owners Anne & Jeff Posner are looking for two crewmembers to join them to complete the second half of a circumnavigation of the world. They have a 2005 Wauquiez 40 Pilot Saloon that they have owned since new.
They are entered in the Jimmy Cornell Blue Planet Odyssey Around the World Rally (www.blueplanetodyssey.com), and they have sailed the first half, from Key West, Florida, to Pittwater, Australia.
As they chose to spend more time in Australia rather than sail to Southeast Asia; they will re-join the other Blue Planet Odyssey sailors in Durban, South Africa.
They are looking for two individuals (not related) to join them. Ideally crew would be able to arrive early enough to spend time learning their boat, stand watches, have some mechanical skills, be non-smokers and only social drinkers ashore, help keep the boat ship shape, and be of good moral character.
In return Anne and Jeff will pay all onboard expenses including the rally fees. Crew will need to get to and from the boat and have money for shoreside activities not included in the rally fee.
If you are unable to sail for the whole distance, please let them know which legs of the rally that you would be able to sail. The planned schedule (dates are planned departure dates) is as follows:
7 May 2016: Pittwater – Mackay
7 July 2016: Mackay – Darwin – Cocos Keeling – Rodrigues – Mauritius – Reunion –
Durban – Cape Town
1 November 2016: Cape Town – St Helena – Brazil
3 January 2017: Brazil – Lesser Antilles – Key West Florida
June 2017: Arrive Key West Florida
If you are interested, please e-mail Jeff & Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief sailing resume and phone number.
