Volunteers who join and support work in Florida gain priority for a cabin to the South China Seas. During voyaging volunteer crews share the cost of the voyage at $20 per day each which includes all food, consumables etc. Those volunteers who join the work on the vessel in Florida and Central America have a cabin of their own and food during the land work.
This is going to be a traditional sail-only passage. As soon as we exit Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale) the voyage will be in trade winds and mostly downwind except for the beam reach from the west of Cuba to Guatemala.
The hurricane season in the South Pacific ends 31st April, we will quickly transit from Panama to the Galapagos s and enter the southeast trade winds headed for Marquesas Islands. Preliminary planning for the Pacific section are: Panama, Las Perlas, Galapagos (ONLY if funds become available via crew), Marquesas Islands and other stops to Papua New Guinea, then into the South China Seas.
We have a Garmin InReach unlimited account which allows all crew to send and receive emails and texts via satellite together with ship's position on every message.
