Welcome to Karaka's Web Site

Karaka is a 53 ft black steel ketch. In an effort to share, learn and grow, the boat is operated as a non profit cooperative, welcoming as crew anybody motivated to join with an open mind. The crew is usually but not always composed of a healthy mix of nomadic dreamers, musicians, philosophers, anarchists, wanderers and assorted non-conforming individuals, as well as less radical people, regardless of nationality, age, gender, worldview, background, or financial status. Attitude is what matters.

A trip around the remote islands of the Pacific Ocean is ongoing for 2016.
For May and June we will be sailing in the MarShall Islands. We will be in Pohnpei in Micronesia in July. Our current plan is to spend the rest of the year between Micronesia and the Solomons islands.

There are crew positions available. Some sailing experience and a willingness to join for the at least a few months would be preferable, please check the CONTACT page if you are interested.

This website is designed to provide as much information as possible to the people interested to join Karaka as crew. Please make sure you have thoroughly explored this website before considering writing to me to apply.

And if anybody out there think I'm cool and want to offer me a beer, here is the donation page.
