SurnameFirst nameA little about your experience as a sailor

I have no experience in sailing. I would like to crew to learn.


My name is Penny and I am looking to sail on a casual basis on week ends. My aim is to take a year off from December and go sailing full time, mostly crewing for yacht deliveries. I have sailed on and off for a number of years and recent events have made me realise that life is too short and that it is important to do what you love. I am a mature, young at heart lady looking to sail. I did sail full time for 5 years as a paid job and sailed across the Indian, Atlantic oceans on yacht deliveries and did a couple of summers in Turkey/Med on 50-60 ft private yachts. So if you are looking for that extra crew I would be grateful for a call. I live on the Gold Coast so you will have to give me some notice. I have done a fair bit of racing but no bowman work please, I leave that to the young ones. Look forward to hearing from you.


I own a yacht at the club and am keen to gain more experience sailing and to help out. My last boat was a 7.5 plate boat sold to take up sailing. I have been on the water since I was a kid. I have held a boat licence for around 30years. My last yacht was an Clipper 14.


Little experience twilight sail and Sunday races Drummoyne sailing club. Plenty of power boating but newish to sailing. Own my own trailer sailer but want to get more experience. I am available most Sundays depending on circumstances due to young family.


Some experience on small dinghies and Hobie cats, both as a child and in adulthood. Limited experience crewing larger vessels.


I'm a newbie sailor - was fascinated by sea since an early age but never got the opportunity until I was an adult. Never sailed before, then I bought a Hobie 14 off gumtree on a whim, watched a couple of Youtube sailing lessons, figured out how to set her up and plonk her in the water and the rest is history. Through many capsizes, bumps, bruises and "oh dear god" moments I think I got the basics figured out now. I do group lessons on Elliott 6 at RQYS to learn more. I sail my Hobie 14 around Moreton bay and where I can trailer her (Wivenhoe dam, Gold Coast). A couple of times I even loaded up my camping gear in dry bags, strapped them on the trampoline and sailed off to Moreton Island for some "campeggio nautico". She has beautiful pink sails, is very girly, nippy and suits me well. I'll be ready for an upgrade soon.


- Sailed Hamilton race week with a crew from Sydney
- used to do twilight racing and weekend races on a tiger 30, Bavaria 38 and a first 44


Freshly returned from several years in Vancouver, Canada, where I owned and successfully campaigned my J-29 "Equilibrium" as well as racing and cruising on a number of other boats. I have raced in Melbourne and cruised the waters around Vancouver as well as the BVI.

I am handy everywhere aft of the mast and am more problems than it is worth up the pointy end. I just want to start getting back on the water.


I have sailed countless times on a 23ft Northwind, including several to Inskip and one to 1770 . I have also sailed countless times on different catarmaran's. I enjoy sailing and would like to get more knowledge

I love being in the water, I have experience in a powerboat since I was a kid, I recently started sailing with some friends in Gold Coast and I love it, I just finish my RYA Competent Crew Certificate and I like to keep getter more appearance and meed people.


I've done some 15ft skiff racing on a river for the past 3 years and also done some inshore and offshore yacht racing on 35-50fters, monohulls. Crewed for Hamilton Island Race Week 2017, Groupama race in New Caldonia 2018 and CYC Blue Water Pointscore Series Flinders Is. Race. Crewed on the skiff with limited helming experience. On the yachts did mainly trim, spinnaker trim, pit, helm. Would love to learn bow on the yachts.


I have been sailing on the North Atlantic coast and in the Mediterranean Sea
