Looking for: Regular crew/casual what ever is on offer.
Experience: I’m 25-year-old male, looking to crew. I have limited experience on board big boats, although I used to crew on a 45ft in Fremantle for the winter series as a bow man a few years ago, and have decent knowledge. I’m really interested in boating and want to spend as much time sailing and learning as possible. I am new to Tassie and am keen to get involved with sailing and socially.

Looking for: A regular role, but happy to pick up what I can to get me on the water until then.
Experience: I am sailing since I am 5 years old and I have been on a boat my whole life. I did a trip around the world, on a sailing boat, when I was younger. I am pretty comfortable with any kind of manoeuvre. I also taught dinghy sailing for 7 years. I am a french speaker, so I don’t know all the English term for sailing, but I am a fast learner.

Experience: Have some sailing experience, previously crewing on Adams 10 and Runnalls 39 based at RPYC, but haven’t sailed for about 3 years. Currently working as a Coxswain for a local tour operator, so comfortable on the water, but looking to grow my sailing knowledge and experience.

Mary Hidas (17/03/17)
Looking for: Most casual sail & cruising, but also keen to do some friendly racing to gain experience. Happy to take any crew role.
Experience: Over the years I’ve done quite a few weekend trips on rented sail boats (back when you could rent them without any qualifications), so am fairly comfortable on a boat. I did the RYA Competent Crew course last year, but haven’t managed to get on a boat since then.
