Please describe your level of sailing experience as either yacht owner, very experienced, some experience, or beginner. Please describe the types of yachts you have sailed on in the past or the yacht you currently own.

Sailed since I was 11. Owned a dinghy as a teenager. Sailed Norfolk Broads, UK every summer. Sail Westernport often. Not an open sea sailor.

What type of sailing do you prefer? Racing, cruising and racing or just cruising. What types of yachts do you prefer? Dingy, trailer sailer, small keelboat, large keelboat, all yachts.

Crusing with social times, overnights, in convoy or one boat.

Weight is crucial in some racing yachts. What is your estimated weight in kilograms? Some racing yachts require a high level of strength, fitness and mobility. Please describe yourself as either, fit and mobile, mobile, restricted movement.


Some yachts are crewed by young teams, others are older. Approximately how old are you? 10-20, 20-30,30-40,40-50,50-60,60-70,70-100? .


It is very annoying for yacht owners when they wait around for crew who say they are coming and fail to show up. Failure to change your RSVP to "not attending" may result in your being banned without further notice . Do you agree?



I own a yacht on Westernport. I do not race, just cruise, but have found I no longer really enjoy sailing alone. I'd love to find friends who want to come for a trip.

What Julian is saying about this Meetup Group

In 2011-2012 my yacht lay dormant, as my friends all have busy lives & few wanted to sail. I no longer enjoy sailing alone. Since joining this group I have never had a problem with lack of crew & am getting poisitive reviews together with RSVPs for another trip, so it must be working for others too.
