Skippers Looking for Crew

Crew for Walkabout (Halberg Rassy 45)

I’m looking for crew for a cruise to Great Keppel Island stopping at Lady Musgrave and various other points on the way. Departure is currently set for August 5th weather pending returning on the 26th or 27th August. Some offshore experience preferred. Shared expenses. If needed one – two weeks into the trip you can be dropped off at Yeppoon to fly home as my son is joining me in Yeppoon for the trip back.
