Dear Skippers, Please be in touch if you’re looking for good crew. T: 778 997 1038. E: james@jamesewilson.com. Thanks in advance. I have a few years of good experience racing and cruising in and around the Vancouver area on various boats and in various positions. Out on the open ocean too on some bigger boats. I’m principally looking for some offshore or longer distance racing or cruising opportunities – here or in foreign waters. I’m pretty safe, agile, hardworking and easy to get along with. I’ve got VHF, PCOC and a bunch of other certifications.

Thank you. I look forward to sailing with you.

Seeking a Melges 24 Crew Position

Experienced racer seeking a crew position on a sport boat (Melges 24 ideally) for races in 2019/2020. Lots of experience racing boats, from dinghies thru small keelboats over the past 30 years, in both skipper and crew roles. Can be main or jib trimmer, foredeck/spinnaker or rail meat ;)  Looking to get into Melges 24 one design racing at WVYC with the idea of maybe getting my own boat eventually (at least a year or two from now), so a regular crew spot would be ideal. Also have kids in the Opti Green fleet.

.Hello,I am a fit, 37 years old woman who is looking to crew for the upcoming fall and winter series. I have never raced before. Last year I sailed from Fiji to Greenland through the Northwest passage on a big 110’ boat. I learned everything about that boat during my 6 months trip so I am confident my skills can transfer to a smaller race boat if you give me a chance to learn.

Contact me at followthepow@yahoo.com or 250-814-7635

Thanks for your consideration
