I am 56 years old looking to help crew at weekends. But can take long weekends if needed. Particularly keen to return to some corinthian racing. I have picked up a few RYA qualifications, including Coastal Skipper, first aid, sea survival, VHF radio etc. Experience of off shore racing on Sigma 33, including Cherbourg and Fastnet, and recent Clipper Round the World Race.

I recently moved to Southampton after graduating from Uni earlier this year. I gained my Day Skipper a couple of years back and I am very keen to get out doing more yacht sailing and learning as much as I can. Excited to hear about any opportunities.

I work Monday-Friday so only free on weekends.

Hi all! I live in London and I am looking to get back on board. Got some decent experience in the med (family owned 39foot sloop and sailed since I was 12) and dinghy/semiskiff experience (laser 2000, laser 3000, Vago) as bowman. Looking to do some cruising, gain some experience on the north sea and build up miles and generally get back on board.

Available all or most weekends for both dinghy and keelboat sailing.

I got into sailing 5 years ago, which was fairly late in life for me as I'm 60, almost 61. I did Comp Crew in 2012, and Dayskipper in 2013, and now have 5,000 nms in my log book. I also have a VHF license, and have done the 1 day Sea Survival course.

Most of my sailing has been on the Solent and across to the Channel Islands, but I've also covered the whole of the coast from Chatham to Penzance. Going further afield I've sailed in the Ionian and the Aegean, along much of the coasts of France, Spain and Portugal, all around Sardinia and across the Bay of Biscay.

I live in Maidstone, Kent, so getting down to the Solent isn't a problem; and Essex, Suffolk and Sussex are easy for me to get to aswell.

I work full time, which means that sailing is unfortunately confined to weekends and annual leave. Still, walking to work every day keeps me fit, and I often go for a swim on the way home.

Lastly, I am happy to sleep in the saloon, but I'm afraid that I'm not prepared to share a cabin.

Hello there!

I'm a 53 old male, and a newly certified RYA certified Day Skipper (Sail). I also have RYA Day Skipper (Power), Marine Radio (SRC) and Radar certifications. My practicals for both sail and power were conducted in the Solent. I buzz around the area in a Sealine S34 when I get the chance, and am always extremely courteous and considerate to any and all yachts I meet along the way!

I wanted to learn to sail, both for the experience and because it's a "no-brainer" when it comes to both chartering and longer passage-making. Having got the bug I would love to be able to build my sailing miles and experience by crewing for any experienced skipper that may be short-handed.

I live in Farnham, Surrey about 45 mins from the South Coast by car so am available at reasonably short notice on weekends. Holiday allowance (and wife) permitting I could also be available for longer cruises.
