Are you interested on crewing on an 18ft - 3 person racing dinghy on Saturdays?
The 18ft Jollyboat is a 3 person racing dinghy (skipper, mainsheet hand & forward /trapeze hand). Both male and female (teenagers and adults) crew these exciting racing dinghies during the summer racing season. The Port Melbourne Yacht Club is the only club in Australia where these unique dinghies are sailed. The Australian 18ft Jollyboat Association invites experienced sailors to come and try out for a crewing position for the September to April sailing season. Both full time (committed to sail a full season almost every Saturday), and part-time fill-in crew positions may be available. Contact Cliff Rothwell with details of your Dinghy sailing experience and your interest and availability to take up a full or part-time crewing position. If you are not an experienced Dinghy sailor then PMYC offers adult sailing courses where you will be taught how to confidently sail a dinghy, set a spinnaker and gain experience in skippering, managing the mainsheet as well as being a forward hand on trapeze. Contact Cliff Rothwell if you would like further information. Also the PMYC website has loads of information regarding sailing activities. The Date and Time shown in this Notice is to collect names of those interested. We will meet at PMYC on Sat Sept 8th and perhaps have a test sail on a Jollyboat depending on weather conditions.

What we're about


Melbourne Sailing is a social networking website which helps skippers find new crew and sailors find new yachts. Yacht owners post racing or cruising events at the website stating their crew requirements. The Melbourne Sailing website emails all members to let them know about the new opportunity to go sailing. With a click of a button those who fit the requirements can join the crew. Sailing is fun and friendly sport and beginners are welcome!
