Email here if you have a message to add.
NEW 06/03/17 - Nanga Mai II is recruiting crew to sail the RYCV Laura Gloria Winter Series (every Wednesday afternoon at 2pm, commencing mid- April 2017). Nanga Mai II is a 2016 model Jeanneau 349, a quick but comfy racer/cruiser with square top main, Code Zero on a furler and an A2 asymmetric on a top-down furler. Experience is preferred but will consider crew who are keen to learn and have some appreciation of the sport. Please call or message David Sterrett on 0412350008 or email David on firstname.lastname@example.org
I am seeking two additional crew to assist in sailing Malcolm Mohrs yacht "Independent Endeavour" from Sandringham to Hobart departing Sandringham YC (Victoria) around the 22/2 and arriving Hobart around 21/3.
We are a participant in the Choices Flooring 2017 VDLC
We already have 4 regular crew members of the yacht participating in this section of the cruise however I would like two more as we have 3 overnight sails for this section of the voyage.
The yacht is a comfortable ocean going ketch rigged Swan 65 and weighs around 35 tonnes.
Any new additional crew members would need to have had some exposure to ocean sailing be reasonably physically fit and agile on board as all deck winches are currently manually operated.
They would also have some exposure to living in reasonably confined spaces on board for the duration of this section of the circumnavigation- (1 month).
Should you happen to know of two suitable persons who would like to join us it would be prudent for them to visit Sandringham YC to view the yacht and meet existing crew members as soon as possible.
It is also envisaged that they would make a small financial contribution for food, beverages and fuel whilst on board. Chris Hunting. Tel: 03 9598 9834.
Concerned about the hurly burly/tension of sailing Saturdays or twilights? Solution sail Wednesday afternoons. Have a lunch at the Club, and partake in the highly competitive trivia quiz
Then about 2.00 pm board the good ship Empara ( a Sydney 32) to sail in the staggered start summer and winter series.
Don’t be fooled, we are serious and competitive. We came second in the first series of the current Summer competition in spite of a very unfair handicap.
The spine of crew is “mature”/ experienced and will teach any newcomers to the sport. Age is no bar but a modicum of agility is desirable.
Our sailing is exhilarating but normally not life threatening. Join us and have some fun.
If interested contact me, Peter Abrahams 0407728059
25/11/16 “Outsider” a 36ft Farr 1104 is looking for 2 or 3 keen fit sailors (with some experience) to join our regular crew. We are currently sailing the Wednesday twilight series, Sunday Tripe & Onions and some Saturday races. We are a friendly crew who enjoy a laugh and the competition. If you are interested please contact Jackie 0417 996 621
14/10/16 Alien is looking for a suitably experienced person for the ORCV offshore series and the Port Lincoln race/ regatta. If sailing experience does not include offshore racing youth, enthusiasm and commitment goes a long way.
If you are interested, please phone Justin 041 991 9313”
09/09/16 - Y Knot Looking for crew: Hi, my name is Ann Goodwin. I am the skipper/owner of Y Knot, a Beneteau First 33.7 cruiser /racer which I have raced in the non-spinnaker division over the past two seasons with some success in Lady skippers races winning the Senorita Cup 2015 and 3rd place in Bollywood Cup 2016. My crews have been a mix of women and men but I currently have crew positions available for anyone with some sailing experience who would like to join us. My plan for season 2016-2017 is to develop and train crew so that we can progress to the spinnaker division with confidence. As from 2nd October, Y Knot will sail on alternate Sundays in the Tripe and Onions series, take part in some of the Wednesday twilight races (or Thursday) and expand the race program to include longer passage races on a Saturday as more crew come on board. Contact me on email@example.com SMS or call 0418 395 983 anytime after Monday 26th September 2016 to talk about sailing on Y Knot.
