Shamrock is a classic H28 that was built in Hobart in 1952 . HBYC has been her home since approximately 1980 . Under her current ownership she has been raced successfully in many HBYC club events, the Classic Yacht Association winter series as well as cruised extensively on Port Phillip Bay.

I am looking for crew to sail regularly in this season's Hot Pursuit Series and the Thursday night Twilight racing.   Also happy to take beginners/ novices out for a day sail to introduce them to sailing and to provide some experience for those who have completed the Sailing Adult 1 & 2 course.

A shiny new Beneteau 38.1 is keen to do Wednesday Afternoon and Thursday Twilight pursuits and would appreciate some company for a ‘not so competitive’ sail. 

We have helped a few folk into sailing and would be keen on folk that have at least done the basics.

We are also looking to do local weekend Cruising and would like to transition the experience learnt on the Twilights into very relaxed Cruising on a very comfortable modern yacht.

Please txt John on

Sarah & Simon - Thursday Twilights

Hi, we have recently completed a start crewing course at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron in St Kilda and are keen to start building up some experience. We are both novice sailors, but very keen and happy to roll up our sleeves. We also don’t mind being ballast if that’s what’s needed. Our dream is to eventually own our own cruising yacht, so we’re interested in getting experience in both cruising and relaxed racing, though we’re the first to admit we’re not quite ready for serious racing just yet. We’d love to come along and crew on Thursday evenings while twilight racing is still on, and we’re also keen to get some experience in on Saturdays if any opportunities arise. We’d love to hear from you! Cheers, Sarah and Simon (0455 370818 /

Emily Nielsen

I've recently returned from overseas, am 29 and fit, and am keen to participate in the weekday twilight summer series. Most weekends I work as a deckhand on a commercial vessel. I have experience racing J/24's and enjoy getting wet (yep, even in winter). I also have a little ocean racing and coastal cruising experience. Thank you, Emily Nielsen
