I wanted to get in touch and see if any of your cruiser racers are looking for crew this season.
I am an experienced racer having done most of my sailing in Dublin, I’ve spent years helming and crewing in all IRC classes. Over the last few years I have not been sailing as much as I’d like but have been competing at events on quarter tonners, mainly Quest from Dublin which has won the Irish Quarter Ton Championships and IRC3 a couple of times.
I have also Co-Skippered two round Ireland’s for Irish Offshore sailing.
I am living in Holywood at the moment and would love to fit some sailing in when I am not at events this season. I am happy to sail with anyone, just happy to be on the water 🙂  I’ve also sailed RS-Elites (really love them) and SB 20’s.
So if any of your members are looking for someone to jump on and be at race speed please feel free to pass on my information.
All the best and have a great season,

Good Afternoon,
I dropped in on Saturday just gone to introduce myself as a crew for either dinghies or yachts.
I have done a bit of yacht sailing as a crew and completed day skipper course. A few times crewed on dinghies in February and March.  However, now that I have moved to Belfast and the sea is so close comparing with Birmingham, I would like to do a lot more sailing and finally master wind/sails skills.
The potential date mentioned for sailing was Thursday this week – I am looking forward to hear back!

Many Thanks,
