Hi Alex,

I took a catamaran from Borneo (KK) to Mooloolaba in late 2010. I will sail my own yacht back along the same route and approx timing in 2011. See my notes in this forum relating to sailing round the top of Australia, I have been round the top of Cape York and up and down the Qld coast 6 times now in different yachts and times but always heading east in late Nov to be clear of the cyclone areas by early December. There is a Rally called Passage to the East which is a good trip but not probably for the surfing kind. See www.sailmalaysia.net for info. About 40 yachts were involved in 2010.

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave,



Me and my partner are currently in Thailand. We've travelled overland from England and are looking for ways to reach home, the Sunshine Coast, without flying. We're excited about the idea of crewing. It's not something we've done before, but we have good sea legs and are experienced at a number of roles that might be handy on board, including cooking and nannying.




We were wondering whether you know of any boats looking for 2 able-bodied crew, sailing from southeast asia to Oz in the coming months. We're hoping to be home by the end of June.




Would appreciate any news or suggestions you may have.




All the best,




Nina & Richie
