Julian Carr (Bristol) – seeking some fun on the water ?

Thu 07-Oct-21|

I have been a member for the last 3 years and am looking for crewing opportunities whilst improving my knowledge and skill level. I re-took my RYA 1 & 2 when I joined, having not sailed much since school days on the Suffolk coast, but have always enjoyed the sport. I’ve sailed in the club boats and with a number of the RS200 fleet helms, but would also like to experience other boats and fleets at the club. As my confidence increases I would also like to own my own boat. I’m 5’11’’, 84 kg and am available alternate Saturdays and Sundays due to work and some mid week days, all year round ! mobile - 07941521169 email -

Sun 25-Jul-21|

Hello. I have just recently joined the club and completed my level 1&2 so very little experience but quick learner. I don’t have a boat so keen to crew for others at weekends to increase my experience and keep learning and meet other members. I am 5’6” and 60kg Thanks Mandy 0771 8882258 or email

Hello. I have just recently joined the club but I don’t have a boat. I am looking for crewing or helming opportunities at weekends. I sailed Fireballs and Wayfarers back in the mists of time when I was a teenager. About 10 years ago I did a sailing holiday in the Med learning Lasers and windsurfing. I have also sailed on square rigged tall ships but that’s a slightly different ball game. I know the basics and I am keen to get back into it.. I am 6’ 3” and 84kg. Thanks John Moran. 07947 584387 or email

Looking for a Crew – Tim Barden

Thu 21-Jun-18|

I've recently joined the club and am available to crew most Wednesday evenings and several weekends over the summer. I am an experienced sailor (including trapeze and spinnakers). Although, I have not sailed a dinghy for several years, I'm not completely out of touch as I have sailed yachts a bit over the last couple of years. I'm looking to get back into dinghy sailing and racing, so let please e mail if you are looking for crew. Thanks Tim

New Member from Datchet

Fri 16-Mar-18|

I was looking for crewing opportunities at the club - I'm a new member joined from Datchet where I sailed a Dart 18 singlehanded. I have also raced the Flying Fifteens there too, and some asymmetricals some too but not RS 800 or anything too skiff-like. I'm 46 and 90kg, but reasonably fit so happy to sail most boats. If any boats need a crew please contact me. Thanks Jeremy Neech 07977 499750

I’m a rusty, retired sailor returning to the sport after an 18 year break. I’m looking for a crew, occasionally or long term for my Wayfarer. I’m happy to potter, cruise or maybe race (If I can remember how to!). Nothing serious, I just want to enjoy the sport again. I’m more than happy to share the helm. I’m available on most sailing days (not too early!!) If interested, please contact Mike Ferguson on 07896 01433.
