Woodward Sharyn I have experience as a racing hand for the Botany Bay yacht club from 2008-2011. I raced twilights on Missconception for the duration, winning our handicap most years. I can’t say I was a useful deckhand however I do know my way around a boat and am aware of the jargon. 8/18/2017 10:54

Lovett Dale Dingy racing many years ago. Recently aquired RYA Day Skipper. Bareboat charters. Many years with a power boat. Just love being out on the water. 10/20/2017 10:07
Lisa Dunn I am a beginner. I’ve been out twice for day trips and both captain’s have shown me some things but I am still keen to learn more. Have considered taking a sailing lesson. And I watch a lot of docos and also read. I wish to live on a sail boat, hopefully one I can manage solo. I guess the logistics of that will be revealed in time. I have had approximately 5 powered boats but have been lured to sail for the freedom/not relying on fuel stops. It is also a frontier I haven’t crossed yet. I currently hold a boat licence. My dream is to circumnavigate. 1/7/2018 18:21
Cappel Steve I learned to sail as a young teen while in the Boy Scout, in the United States, in little Sunfish sailboats. I owned a Hobie18 catamaran in my thirties, but sadly only took her out sailing twice as I lived in Colorado and it can be inconvenient to make the trip to water big enough to sail in. At this point I would say I have little recent sailing experience and none yet here in Australia. But I’m quite eager to change that. 1/14/2018 2:28
Lineham Tony I have no experience in sailing. I would like to crew to learn. 2/9/2018

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.
