Hello! I’m a 20 year old American girl who will be stopping by Melbourne on Saturday, 24 February. It’s a small window, but if someone is looking for a crew to hop on a boat, I’m available! I’ve sailed dinghies my whole life, starting in Optis and graduating to lasers and 420s. I also sail bow/middle on Thistles. However, I can easily adapt and sail on keelboats! Call/text/email me if you’re interested!

I am a 22 year old French girl and I will be in Melbourne for the next six months. I grew up along the Atlantic coast in France and was used to sail a lot when I was a kid. I have also been a sailing instructor in France during summer. I have done several cruises on keel boat and love both cruising and racing! I have still a lot to learn and definitely love sailing so I would really like to sail on a regular basis! I am more available on the weekend or the evening after 6:30pm.
So if you are looking for a new crew, feel free to contact me!

I'm a 25yo Belgian girl, currently on my working-holiday visa in Australia. I'm coming to Melbourne in mid March. I'm passionate about every sport on the ocean and would love to learn sailing a yacht. In Belgium I used to sail hobie cats (multihull sailing) and also teach it to children and adults, wherefore I have my instructor's license. I haven't got many experience in joining a yacht so I'm looking forward to join a crew! Other ocean sports I love are surfing and kitesurfing. I'm an easygoing and flexible person and I'm eager to learn new things. Hope to hear from you!

Rene Sharkey (posted 8/11/17)
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.

I'm a trained outdoor recreation professional so I'm used to rubbish conditions, have hard skills in aquatic/swift water rescue and wilderness first aid and I'm generally a pretty hardy person.
