Dear Shipmates

Introduction

Hi. I live in Brisbane Qld but am prepared to travel a reasonable distance to meet the boat. I previously owned a 20ft trailer sailer, though that was years ago now. I am now retired and looking to update and further my sailing experience. Hope to buy a larger boat at sometime in the future. Looking for cruising opportunities, not racing. In March 2023, I crewed on a 59' boat from Cairns to Darwin. May 2023, I crewed on a 38' boat from Brisbane to Bundaberg Qld. Both experiences added greatly to my knowledge and experience, being different sized boats in different conditions. Looking for a variety of opportunities and locations, though also happy to go over the same ground.

A little about myself, my interests and my plans

For me the journey is as (if not more) important than the destination when I am sailing.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

Looking to gain experience while having fun and helping out wherever I can on whatever boat I may be on. I am available for day sail or short or long trips.
