20yrs + experience on and off shore.
Class 1 racing. Qld, Ireland & Europe, HK & Southeast Asia. Short hand and full crew.
Can slot into any position. Be warned - not race fit, prefer to stay off the pointy end til body is back in full action.
A chilled crew with a competitive and ever so slightly mad edge preferred.
Just arrived in Melbourne and not being out on the water is killing me.
White sail, cruiser / full suite, class racing - doesn't matter. Just want to get out there and have some fun.
