Pick only one of these four words: Skipper (you will take people out in your boat), Crew (you have experience), Novice (willing to learn), or Fun (not interested in learning).


For non-skippers, describe your boating experience in order to assist skippers in choosing their crew. For skippers, explain your expectations from people on your boat.

Gerald has kayaked for decades but has no boat training. 'Willing to learn, share travel and political stories, and to cook, clean and pay generously towards expenses.

List the boating activities that interest you (learning, teaching, recounting my travels, casual sailing, sailing races, motoring, overnight trips, long-range trips, etc.).

Gerald travels widely and would now like to experience sailing and cruising to choose a focus, then learn to crew. He cooks a little, cleans a lot and always pays his way.

Tell us about your boat if you have one (type, size, name, home port) or answer "none" otherwise.

My only boat is a 16.5-foot two-person kayak that I've paddled on brine and fresh for 33 years so far. 'Hard to sleep aboard!


Gerald is a 61-year-old landlubber new to Victoria from Nelson by way of Calgary. He hopes to crew and sail or cruise, as long as we dock occasionally to go jogging or cycling. 'Glad to pay his share of costs.
