My name is Geoff Woad.  I am a fit 58 year old Australian who has been sailing and racing most of his life.  My original home port was Fremantle in Western Australia where I grew up racing dinghies and windsurfing in strong winds on the Swan River and out in the Indian Ocean. Professionally I am a geologist and various overseas postings during my career have allowed me the chance to race on larger boats in three of the world's great ports.  I have raced and cruised on a Swan 431 in San Francisco, an Attitude 29 in Rio de Janeiro, a Esse 850 in Singapore, Hunter Legend 35 out of Lima, and I currently sail my Ericson 30 here out of Thunderbird Marina.  I am familiar with running both symmetrical and asymmetrical spinnaker systems and can adapt to any task given to me on the boat.I am available most Wednesdays.

Thanks Geoff

I am an experienced power boater (have been captaining my family's 48' twin engine Symbol since I was twelve), but am just getting started with sailing. Although my sailing experience is minimal, I am a quick learner and am looking to soak up as much as you are willing to teach me.  Availability: I am free weekends, and most evenings after 6pm. Contact: Please call me at 604-626-6227, or email me at sophiawilby95@gmail.com I would love to join your crew this summer and look forward to starting :) 

Thanks so
much,
Sophia Wilby

Hi,

I'd like to get on the crew bank list. I'm an experienced sailor (lifetime, CYA Level 5 and Intermediate Cruising) who has been racing (yachts) on and off for 9 months. I've crewed the Southern Straights (Alegria) and Round Bowen (HARWAR) this year as well as a couple of the Polar Series (HARWAR). I'm looking to get more experience and would love to get in as regular crew on the Wed night series.
