Mile Building and Crew Experience Opportunities

UPDATE: Crew positions have been filled.

Mile-building and crew experience opportunities with Angra Pequena – 2 Mozambique passages, 16-22 November and 14-20 December.

Message from Angra Pequena:

“We are planning two trips from Durban to Maputo/Inhaca RTN over the next 2 months:

  1. 16-22 November 2016
  2. 14-20 December 2016

We plan to head straight up to Maputo, clear in, then across to Inhaca for 2-3 nights at anchor, and then straight back down to Durban (via clear-out from Maputo).

The passages are each planned to be 6-7 days, and we could take 10 mileage-builder / trainees with us:

  • 2 x Mate (with minimum RYA Yachtmaster Sail (experienced), but preferably completed Motor conversion and just need miles)
  • 2 x Watchkeeper/Deckhand (must have RYA Yachtmaster Sail as a minimum, and STCW)
  • 4 x Deckhands (valid STCW and preferably a duck skipper ticket and/or deckhand qualification)
  • 2 x Stewards (Valid STCW and preferably a steward course completed)

This would give miles for both Motor and Sail requirements. Candidates will be treated as crew and be expected to be involved in all duties/watches assigned by the Skipper.

We will have a qualified experienced crew (Skipper, Mate, Deckhand, Chief Engineer and Second Engineer) aboard for both voyages as well.

The total sea miles that can be expected to be gained on each return voyage is 650nm. If there is a need for more, we could consider extending the route but would then need to increase the price somewhat to cover costs.

We can offer these working passages for R12 000 each (excluding VAT), including full board and meals for 6 nights and 7 days, but excluding costs of travel to the vessel in Durban and travel medical insurance cover.”
