The Alexander Stewart (refer Melbourne Sailing Adventures) is headed for Queensland to go back into charter in the Whitsundays (Cumberland group). The owner(s) Ivan and Peace Mitchell and his family are treating the delivery as a holiday while moving the vessel back to Queensland.
The departure is to be the first weather window after 09 September. We are looking for two or three crew to come along for a holiday/delivery. The 'plan' is to go to Refuge Cove at Wilsons Promontory, Eden, Sydney, Wide Bay and Great Sandy Straits, then island hop from Hervey Bay up to Airlie Beach. Overnighters where required but very much in the cruisy mode over about a month.
We are after two or three people to help out as crew/watch-keepers so experience with night watches would be good; in the interests of crew mix, women sailors out there are encouraged if keen. The 'Stewart' is a very large and very comfortable boat, gaff rigged, cutter-ketch, 60 tonnes and nine double cabins; pictures on the Melbourne Sailing Adventures website. Anyone interested we can look at all or part of the journey.
If interested call me, Trevor 0425702290. Cheers
