Hello! I'm relatively new to sailing but dying to learn more and get time on the water. I completed my competent crew last summer and have taken part in some races. My friend Gill is at the same level as me. We're both enthusiastic and friendly crew members. We live in London and are available at weekends. We look forward to hearing from you.

I’m 38 years old and have 11 years of racing experience on 32-37ft yachts in ORC international inshore and offshore races (Kiel week, German, European and World Championships taking place in the baltic). Experienced genua and spinnaker trimmer but also open to other positionslike pit. Looking for permanent place in a crew for the 2018 season and beyond for weekend racing. Holder of a day skipper license and ISAF saftey certificate.
Looking for a mixed gender crew that‘s competitive but puts team spirit and fun in first place. Available from end of May due to relocation to the UK. Thanks Christina

I'm 19 and currently live in Southampton.
I have been racing dinghys for a long time and have had some experience yachting. I really want to get into offshore racing. I may not have as much experience as others but I'm keen and a fast learner and can use all my experience racing in dinghys. So if there are any opportunities for me to crew offshore that would be fab.

I am a young 38 year old girl who STARTED sailing by crossing the Atlantic with the ARC last November. I loved it so much that I continued on the boat (Hanse 505) for a further 6 months in the Caribbean as first mate / hostess.
I'm now back in the UK and am missing sailing so much! Since being back I have experienced my first racing experience during a corporate regatta from the Solent to Cowes a few weeks ago, and I absolutely loved it.... I was in my element!
I'm looking for any crew opportunities in the UK (or abroad in fact!) but in particular for Cowes week.
I'm a great girl who is fun, friendly and a hard working crew member who loves sailing !!
On a slightly different note, my friend who is an extremely experienced skipper is due back from his Atlantic return crossing just before Cowes week and he would also be available if required.

I'm an 18 year old, experienced yacht racer who's studying a degree in sailing, looking for more race experience as a bowman or trimmer. Raced at cowes week and have also competed in 3 tall ships races, racing onboard a 68ft oyster. Qualified with a powerboat level 2, competent crew, watch leader and currently in the stages of achieving my day skipper.
Ben Manley   -   03 August 2016 at 20:59  Email:  
I’m 20 and live in Worthing. I’m a very experienced dinghy sailor and race most weekends. I’m looking to gain some experience crewing on before taking my day skipper qualification. I have a limited experience yacht sailing but do hold a competent crew ticket and also powerboat level 2. I’m fit, social and very keen to learn. I’m pretty laid back but get competitive when I need to be. I work full time so I can only commit to weekend sailing but happy to drive to wherever I’m needed. Thanks :)
Tim Tolcher   -   09 May 2016 at 20:51  Email:  
I've recently bought a very competitive J70 Jugador with new North Sails and I am looking to put together a crew for this season with a view to going for a full campaign next season. I'm looking to do RSYC Regattas, Southern Area champs, Round the Island, Cowes Week (in part) and Nationals. I'm happy to let the crew take the boat out for events I can't do subject to one of you being a decent helm!
