Ian Cargill (26/10/2018)
Experience: Minimal sailing experience, but would like to give it a go. Good with knots, so would suit a boat that needs reefing. Also strong swimmer, so would suit a boat prone to capsize 🙂 May not have much experience, but can obey simple instructions like “pull on that rope” or “stop pulling on that rope”. Now mostly retired, so would often be available midweek as well as weekend.
Looking For: Any, at least until I get a bit more experience.
