Fun loving, well travelled couple in our mid 50s, recently relocated to Auckland, my wife and I are keen to improve our sailing ability.  We have some experience but definitely need more practice!! Last year we completed Penny Whiting’s competent crew course and also participated in a few of the Friday night specials at RYC.  We like the club and have enrolled for the Friday night special this year. Happy to contribute to refreshments if we can get a sail, expenses too, and of course follow instruction!  Do enjoy a post sail debrief over a cleansing ale or glass of wine.  Look forward to hearing from you…!

Liam & Sammy
We are a couple from the UK living and working in Auckland. Liam has worked previously as a Deck Hand on the tourist boats in Airlie Beach, Australia, he used to teach sailing on charter boats in Greece for a summer, he taught dingy sailing for two summers.  Most recently, Liam has been working for a boat builder here in Auckland and previously worked in yacht maintenance both in the UK. Sammy has limited sailing experience but has experience of cooking in galley kitchens and is happy to get stuck into any cleaning. We are both easy to get on with and (we like to think) rather good company. Interested to hear of any crew opportunities for early 2018, Either short or long trips. Happy to share expenses.

Looking to spend Jan and/or Feb 2018 in NZ and would like to do the summer series on a boat with a happy crew that is reasonably competitive – spinnaker a must.  House swap could be good – or a place to stay or a boat to look after.

Happy to help with the boat cleaning and maintenance.
Willing to bring beer and share expenses.

I’d love to join a crew for weekend or evening racing. Have been sailing on and off for 30 years. Spent the last few seasons occasionally (when work or family commitments permitted) joining crews over at Half Moon Bay (1020s) but with office in Britomart and home in Castor Bay, Westhaven is more convenient. Keen to join a crew for some fun racing. Also keen to do longer races. Sailed the coastal classic five times. Happy to chip in for crew costs. Usually sail the middle of the boat, sorting tacks, trimming downwind or just ballast.

I’m inexperienced with keel boats, but willing to learn, and very keen. I’ve been sailing dinghies for a long time but couldn’t take my splash with me to uni, so I realy want to get out on the water again. I’m up for any race type, particularly Twilights or weekends, and am usually available on short notice.

Ahoy, I’m 23 and come from Denmark and will love to take part in some racing, cruising and just spend some time at the water. I’m use to the rough Danish weather and are ready for some sailing in the winter.
I have been sailing for 2 years in a sailing club, where I took part in a sailing school and took the sailing certificate. I have been in some races, but I don’t have that much experience in racing and are not familiarly with all the rules, but like to learn and take orders. I have mostly been sailing a h-boat (27 ft)
I’m a 23 years old female, but I’m quite tall (188). I will stay in New Zealand until November and will love to bring some beer for a cheers at the pier.
I’m available most weekends and will love to sail with you!

Hi everybody 🙂  We are a french couple arrived in New Zealand  2months ago and we would like to cruise through the  Pacific to discover all the islands ! Both we speak englis, french and spanish. Currently we are looking for a boat as crew members with a shared contribution of daily onboard expenses of course 🙂
We don’t have any relevant experience on boating but we really want to have this experience and learn it. We are very motivated and easy-going !
We can do everything on boat … cleaning, cooking, making jokes …
We are flexible about everything … we can move all over New-Zealand to join the departure marina. For the schedule, we will be available for cruising from mi July untill end of this year. And we don”t have a fixed plan about what we want to see … all the Pacific looks great for us (Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, New Caledonia, Tahiti ….) ! Alice &Jakez
