Free membership for as long as you like

Registration is 100% free for all Boat and Crew members, and 100% free of any Advertising! You can remain a Free member for as long as you like to see if our network works for you, and you can send waves without exposing your contact details to people who may never reply to you. It's a simple way to establish who is serious and make an initial connection with people who are still strangers to you. To exchange contact details, at least one party is required to be a Premium member.


Premium upgrade anytime, or when you're ready

Premium upgrade from only A$75 for 30 days, or up to A$420 for 1 year for boat or crew members (plus 10% GST in Australia).

How long can I be a Free Member for?

You can be a Free member forever!


As a Free member, you can send a wave to any matching members, but you can only exchange contact details with matching current Premium members who 'Contact' or 'Reply Yes/Maybe' to you.

Must I become a Premium Member?

You do not have to become a Premium Member. As a Free member you can use, trial, send waves, and familiarise yourself with the Find a Crew™ network for as long as you like without having to become a Premium Member. However, as a Free Member you can only exchange contact details with Premium Members who you 'Contact', or who 'Reply Yes' or 'Reply Maybe' to you.

How long does it take to register my profile?

Registration is a 4 step process and should take less than 10 minutes, even with moderate internet experience.


Step 1 - Your email address and password to create either your boat or crew member account.

Step 2 - About you - your details and your location information.

Step 3 - About the position - details of your availability and what you are looking for.

Step 4 - 'Dear Shipmates' - extra information, write in your own words to tell more about yourself.


How old do I have to be to register with Find a Crew™?

Age is no constraint with Find a Crew™. If you are young or seasoned, we welcome you to our network as we can't check how old you are anyway. For your own safety we suggest that you enter your real age rather than pretend to be 19 when you're 17, or 65 instead of 85 for that matter.
However, you are certainly allowed to write in your 'Dear Shipmates' section if you are 80 going on 25!

Most Premium members pay their fee by credit card , and hence are most likely over the age of 18 anyway.

Boat members who take crew members under the age of 18 aboard should assure to have parental permission!

If you are under 18 years of age and wish for an opportunity to go day sailing we encourage you to do so provided your parents know you have registered with Find a Crew™! Crew members under the age of 16 are not included in the automated matching but can still be viewed by members, or contacted by boat members.

When will my profile be live on Find a Crew™?

As soon as you complete your profile, it will be live on Find a Crew™.

Profiles do go through an automated monitoring process to ensure that no-one misuses or abuses the system, and to keep the quality of our member profiles at a high standard. This process also helps us to detect any fraudulent or spammer attempts to misuse Find a Crew™. Most of these attempts are stopped before they go live.
