Also went over to Antigua for the RORC Caribbean 600 (First 40) in February 2018.

Hi Everybody,
Looking for a boat to crew on for the Frostbite series of 2018 and beyond. Interested in cruising as well if somebody's up for that on these wintery months! ;)
Got Yachtmaster Off-Shore and around 20.000nm under my belt, mostly from cruising but have also raced on few boats in the Solent area during last years. Have experience of pit, mast and bow positions onboard.
Currently studying yacht design and working as a boat-builder in Southampton area, so living locally and available on most weekends.
Feel free to message or call (07763774958) me if in need of crew on coming months!
Many thanks,

Hi, I’m looking for more opportunities to race. I’ve had extensive experience cruising aboard a Jeaunneau 45.2 and have my watch leader, with the dayskipper to follow next year. I have also raced in the UKSA ASTO small ships race and in the Round the Island race, both in a Sigma 38. While not hugely experienced on the racing side I am quick and eager to learn, and also young and agile enough to get around the boat.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Looking to crew most weekends over the winter to build my experience if anyone is looking for a highly motivated, very enthusiastic and super friendly crew member with a good sense of humour!
I look forward to hearing from you.
