    Gday Ty,

    I’ve been looking into a similar trip for a while and its the darwin to dili/indo leg of the trip that seems to be the hardest to sort out. I’m familiar with the yatch races in July but was wondering if, in your experience, you found that there were many private sailing yatchs doing this trip earlier in the year (I’m looking at Feb). I guess what I’m asking is what are my chances of rocking up at Fanny Bay Yatch Club with no sailing experience, putting up an ad on the notice board, and someone taking me on as crew. Have you heard of this happening? Bit of a stretch I know. Did you come up with any other plans on how to make the crossing when you were planning? Any advice or references would be great. Thanks mate.

    Regards,
    Anthony.

      Hey mate,
      Feb is still in the wet season for the north so you might have a hard time finding a boat leaving Darwin around then. Weather makes it pretty hard to be sailing out and there is the risk of hurricanes. Best bet is to send a message to the yacht club and ask them for some advice before you head on up there. That said being around Darwin will give you a better chance of finding something if you have no experience, its always easier to convince people to give you a chance in person rather then through the internet. so being there has its advantages it might just take a while. people are most likely going to leave from northern queensland or darwin to go north into indonesia/new guinea area, leaving after the wet season and hurricanes. i wrote a post on all the websites used for finding crew/boats. give that read and check out all the sites and use them to see where boats seem to be and are leaving from. the first lift is always the hardest, you need to be checking it a lot. consider getting some gigs crewing on yachts just up the coast for a bit to get some experience even, day sails. that will help you convince someone to take you across a bigger passage as you wont be completely green.

      all the best mate
