21 years old member of staff here at the Royal Southern for the last few years. Though I have never been sailing, I like to think I make up for my lack of experience with vast amounts of enthusiasm!
So if anyone needs any crew and are willing to teach I'm more than happy to learn. Feel free to call on: 07494539459

Have previously cruised on 36ft Dufour since age of 6 and 45ft Beneteau over the last 8 years (I am now 23) all out of Falmouth .

Hi, I am a 33 year old sporty, strong and friendly female, looking to sail more in 2017. I live in London and have sailed with friends regularly over the past ten years. I am a novice and don't have any qualifications yet, although I did complete some courses as a child, as my father owned a boat! I can be available many weekends in 2017, and am looking for opportunities both for cruising and racing. I am keen to get stuck in and get some time on the water, and ideally would love to race in Cowes week.

Please do contact me if you are interested, and I am happy to meet to discuss!

Many thanks, Alexandra
Thomas Stiddard   -   16 November 2016 at 18:15  Email:  
My name is Tom. I am looking to get involved with yacht racing and maybe some crushing too.

I am Comp Crew qualified and have done a few weeks on a training yacht and one Regatta through my work. I am looking at completing my Day Skipper in 2017 and some other RYA courses.

I live near Salisbury and am willing to travel at my own expense available on weekends and willing to use leave days from work to train etc. I am a keen and quick learner, willing to take any position in a crew. I am also a qualified Emergency Medical Technician and looking at doing the RYA First Aid in the new year.

Please email me for further info and contact details.

Jess and Ros   -   25 October 2016 at 13:13  Email:  
Hello - we are two sisters (Jess (30) and Ros (32)), living in the Southampton area. We are friendly and easy to get on with, both very keen on sailing and hoping to get more involved in sailing regularly. We are both doctors and have good knowledge of first aid if that helps! We have previously dinghy sailed (undertaken RYA level 1 and 2) and both have our competent crew sailing qualifications. We intend to take our day skipper courses (theory and practical) in the next year so would appreciate any opportunity to help out and improve our skills and knowledge at the same time. We are interested in both cruising and racing. We are available most weekends (one or both of us), and would be happy to get stuck in. We would also be happy to be contacted at the last minute. We are more than happy to meet up before to discuss anything and are easily contactable. Please do get in touch if you are looking for 2 very keen crew!
Jamie    -   22 September 2016 at 22:20  Email:  
I have been dinghy sailing competitively for years, racing at club an national level. Having spent many summers working as a dinghy instructor, am hoping to get back into racing. I have Day skipper, VHF, SI, PB2 First Aid etc.

I am based in London, but can get the train towards Hamble/Southampton/Portsmouth to meet boats.

I would be particularly interested in joining a racing crew semi-regularly to build experience but also happy to cruise; essentially anything to get on the water!

I'm easy going and keen to learn, so please feel fee to get in touch!

My husband and I have recently completed Day Skipper and Competent Crew course at Port Solent. We are very keen to gain more experience either together or individually. I could be available Thurs- Sun and my husband could do weekends only.
We have professional jobs and live in Shropshire with our daughter Molly 8yrs old, so if any families would like some company we are very easy going.

Hello! A friend and I recently completed Competent Crewe at the Hamble School of Yachting and we're now looking to have more time on the water and keep learning. We've even booked a sailing trip for New Years in Antigua. We make a wonderful G&T at the end of the day if that helps. Enthusiastic and keen learner. London based so free for weekends.

I'm a mid 30's guy living in Winchester, looking for opportunities to get out sailing on the solent at weekends, either cruising or part of a racing crew. I am a qualified day skipper and have done several sailing holidays in the med, so am comfortable enough around a boat, but looking to grow my basic sailing experience and always keen to learn new things!
Claire   -   04 March 2016 at 14:52  Email:  
Love sailing and looking for any opportunities to get out on the water (racing, cruising, deliveries). I completed a number of rorc's offshore races last season and the fastnet. Quick learner and really keen. Laid back but can be competitive when I need to!
