Hello Shipmates and Skippers,

Please call or email if you’re looking for a useful and pleasant crew mate to have aboard. 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, Coastal Nav and enjoy going fast or slow. And I’m just looking to get out on the water more / see the world ;-)



My name is Gonzalo Osborne recently moved to Vancouver and I’m looking for a boat to sail. I heard lots and really good about sailing in Vancouver.I used to race few years ago every week in Spain, but slow down since I moved to Northamerica. Last boats I’ve been racing with (2017 and 2018) are a Farr30 in Corpus Christi, TX, and a Laser 28 in Montreal.I’m interested on sailing during the weekends and week nights. I could do any position in the boat, or just help with my weight (65kgs).Email: gonosborne@gmail.com or call 604 970 1222

I would love to race the fall and winter series, and then carry on with Southern Straits, Swift sure, Van Isle etc.  While I have always been fortunate standing in the crew circle, it would be nice to plan a little further ahead. 

Love, Curiosity, and WIND!!
My name is Jack Kok.

I have lived in the North Shore for over 20 years. I have sailed for over 10 years and owned my own sailboat for 3 years which we have just sold. I would love to crew on a sailboat. I am very handy on a boat and do not mind any of the tasks including fixing boats. I love sailing and I love the water. Let me know if you need crew.
My cell number is 604-837-4788. I am available weekends and weekday evenings.


 Aaron Hall - I am fairly new to sailing, but do have some experience from the West Van club on a Farr 30. Rail meat and one race in the pit. While crewing with that group is my preference, if space is not available I would love to assist your crew, any division, any conditions. I have all my foul weather gear. Booze as a token of my appreciation is always provided (or a thermos of coffee if preferred). 778-837-7740. Zekehall@gmail.com.

Hello, my name is Kara, I’m mostly self-taught on my own boat (San Juan 24) but I’m looking to crew for the winter to build skills and experience. I’m very active and willing to learn more about bow work. I’m currently committed to the polar bear series but I’m looking to continue racing on every other Sunday with the snowflake series. Thanks and have a good day.
