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.

I am an experience ocean sailor. I’ve sailed a few Sydney Hobart’s in a Davidson 34, much cruising and racing in Bass Straight, a year cruising the South Pacific in a Cape Barron Goose 36 and a year sailing 20ers in Austria.

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.

I like cruising and racing but most of all I like it when yacht owners join this group and take people sailing.

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.

87kg, fit and mobile

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? .

40-50

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?

Yes
