Hi there. Just moved over from Fremantle where I took their local yahct club’s keelboat course and went sailing several times since. I fell in love with sailing and try to go whenever work permits. I haven’t found a job yet here so my availability may change in the future, but I will update it when I can. Look forward to hearing from you!

I have sailed for many years in both Victoria but more so in WA, especially in the Albany region. I have previously owned a small keel yacht (Maxi 20) in Albany. I have crewed for many years in both around the cans racing, offshore and cruised the WA coast from Esperance to Broome.
I was a junior sailing coach at the Princess Royal Sailing Club in Albany and have coached teams racing at a school level.
I currently work in a remote region of the Kimberely, however I am relocating at the end of this year back to Victoria. I am available only during school holidays for relaxed racing or social sailing at this time.

I have been sailing for four years. My racing experience is mainly pursuit courses with the occasional spinnaker race, as well as longer Bay races. Looking to have fun but like to race competitively as well. Also interested in eventually doing some longer races outside of the Bay.

I did a little sailing as a teenager with my father on his TS16. In recent years, I have done 2 voyages on the “One and All”, tall ship based in Adelaide. I am also working to volunteer on the “Enterprize”.
I have very little experience, but am a quick learner and am very keen for experience.
My availablility is dependant on my husband’s work, but I will do all I can to be able to come.
I am open to sailing with men, but am also particularly keen to be out with women.
