Looking for a place in a sailing / race crew?
We are looking for two or three experienced crew, preferably with spinnaker experience, to sail on Wednesdays twilights, on a performance keel boat.
This is an action boat, with trapeze, fractional, mast head and assymetrical spinnakers ( not used all at once!). Its quick in light airs and enjoys a good breeze. In last Wednesdays Race, we were first over the line and first on handicap, in our Division: http://www.rycv.asn.au/resultswed/index.asp?group=races&race=O114-3.HTM , with winds gusting 35 to 40 knots and blinding rain. Great sail!
The race starts at 6:00 pm, so we try and be on the water, for a practice, by 5:00 /5:15 pm, hence the 4. 30 arrival time.There is a little leeway, for those who struggle with work / traffic.
There is usually lots of free parking in The Strand, along the Hobson Bay foreshore.
The HBYC offers a BBQ after racing withs drinks at very reasonable prices.
We do have some extra sailing clothing available, usually (L) Large.
Please join the waiting list and I will select upto 3 crew and confirm them by Wednesday.
Happy to discuss further
