CREW AVAILABLE 2019/20 season

John Crawford(posted 29/10/19)

Twilight Racing, Wednesdays, Saturday Racing, Cruising
I have never been sailing before, but I am very keen to start learning! I’m a 28 yo. moderately fit male. The idea of sailing has always been a dream that I believed to be unattainable, but have recently discovered that maybe its not! Very keen to learn anything and everything.

Twilight Racing, Wednesdays, Saturday Racing, Squadron Sundays – Relaxed Pursuit Race, Classic Yachts, Cruising
I have been sailing since 2009 mainly on keelboats for crews of 6-8 persons. I have been doing all jobs on the boat but am most confident in trimming the jib. I have been doing races going for a couple of hours up to day long races. I have also done a couple of sailing courses but learnt mostly “by doing”. I sailed mainly in Auckland (NZ) and in different places in France (mainly Brittany). I am now living close to St Kilda and look for opportunities for racing or cruising on a casual basis. I am very flexible with day and time and can either jump in to replace missing crew or be a regular crew member for the summer season (until January). Please drop me a line or ring me if there is a spot on your boat!!

23 year old with approximately 20 years experience ranging from dinghy racing to larger ocean races on a range of boats. Recently moved to Melbourne from Yeppoon, QLD and keen to jump on board! Usually make the pit/bow my home but I’m a fairly versatile body.
Tex Walsh (posted 13/04/2019)
I am planning to join RMYS. I have done up to coastal skipper qualification and all crewing courses before that. I owned a yacht for three years, a Mcgregor 26 and did some racing and lots of sailing. I have experience crewing, maybe a little rusty, but will get up to speed quickly. Unfortunately I cannot commit to every weekend, as I spend half my time in Perth, at the moment. I can be available at fairly short notice.

Leo & Nick (posted 21/02/19)
Myself and my partner Nicholas joined RMYS late last year along with our H28, Leisurely. We completed the KB1 course (start crewing) and have done a few sails in our boat to Black Rock. We are keen to both improve our skills and get to know more club members. We can do Saturdays or, if someone just needs crew for the occasional sails on the weekend, we could do that too.
