Emily Nielsen

Updated 22/11/18

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

Alberto & Thor

We are Alberto (31) and Thor (37). We would like to join a boat for racing or cruising opportunities. We both have a good experience sailing. I (Alberto) have been sailing in races and have a sailing licence from Italy, Thor instead has experience in sailing with traditional canoes in the Ocean waters around Papua New Guinea. We need to get used to English sailing terms, but we definitely know what sailing means.

We are available to help as crew members for both races or cruises. We would prefer in the weekends but could be available sometimes also during the week.

My contact is:

Brenton Barnes

I'm 32 and live and work in Altona. I recently took my Pacer dinghy down to Tasmania where it is now permanently stored. Last year my wife and I would race it once per month at Albert Park. I've never crewed on a larger boat before and am keen to give it a try. Since I won't be sailing at Albert Sailing Club any more and I live locally I should have plenty of time to crew. If you could put me in touch with a skipper that would be great! Regards, BB M 0418 304 223

Telephone: 0418 304 223

Kel Benson

I’m 38, super keen to learn to sail, with the idea to hopefully buy my own boat soon - I figure the best way to learn quickly is to thrown myself in to it all! Pretty green, with only a short dinghy sailing course under my belt, but I pick things up fast, and don’t mind any kind of weather!


Cheryl Great

Hi! I am a sailor / boat owner (Morgan 38) from the US coming to stay in Melbourne for 2 weeks beginning on March 16th. I would love to find a boat that might allow me to join as crew. If you have any suggestions I would be grateful! I’ve got 3000 ocean miles, to include one 15 day passage from Hawaii to Seattle, Wa, under my belt. I will be bringing my own pfd, and have some racing experience. Thank you in advance! Cheryl s/v Wahine Toa
