Sailors/divers needed by Oceanswatch in the South Pacific

Cat Knapp
.. .
Oceanswatch, a not-for-profit organisation that works with sailors, divers and scientists worldwide to help Island communities conserve their marine environments, develop sustainable livelihoods and access primary education, is looking for a sailor and a diver for an exciting adventure.

They are looking for one experienced crew to help them take their Wharram 38 Cat Knapp from New Zealand to Vanuatu. The boat is prepared to NZ Category 1 Offshore standards and skippered by Chris Bone (100,000nm). Cat Knapp has done several Ocean passages and sailed to NZ from the USA. Departure from NZ in about 10 days.

They are also interested in hearing from anyone keen to volunteering as a Mate/Diver for the entire expedition. This is a fascinating opportunity for anyone interested in adventure who has a serious commitment to marine conservation and helping others.

They will be away five months in Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, ending their trip in November in Brisbane, Australia. They emphasise that the trip is NOT a holiday: 'It’s hard work but may be the most rewarding work you will ever have done!' This is a share expenses, voluntary position.
