This is a powerful boat and experienced crew is preferred. 0408195935. In saying the above tonight’s race would be a great opportunity to meet Don and have an easier sail as its jib and main only.

    HI
    We are looking for 2 or 3 crew to accompany us from Noumea to Sydney
    must be experienced
    Need ASAP contact 0415822249
    thanks
    Sonia

  16. Andrew Colebourn

    This email is to ask if there are any crewing opportunities at the club or anyone looking for crews for the remainder of 2017..

    I completed the keelboat crewing/helming/inshore skippering courses with your club earlier in the year but due to work commitments have been unable to go sailing since, so am quite inexperienced. I have not sailed outside of this training and have not been in a race. I also hold a current NSW powerboat license.

    I am quite happy to perform any role and would be grateful for the opportunity to get some more sailing experience, I am primarily interested in keelboats.

    I am available on weekends only as I work full time in Toowoomba, so from looking at the calendar that would align best with the offshore series.

    Ultimately I am quite keen to get into cruising and buy my own boat so if there is anyone looking for crew for those purposes or a spare hand to sail to facilitate others having a beverage I am quite happy to do that too.

    Thanks in advance for your time & I hope to hear from you again soon.

    Yours aye,

    Drew.
