    Default Looking to crew!

    Good Day,

    I am looking to get myself crewing for anyone that needs someone. I used to dinghy sail in my younger years and did a competent crew course some years back in Portugul. Since then, circumstances meant I have not stepped on a boat however I now have the time!

    I am in the Merchant Navy and work regular patterns which are at the moment 6 weeks on 6 weeks off.....therefore when I'm on leave I have plenty of time if anyone is in need. Weekdays are no problem!

    Cheers

    Hi Mark

    Welcome to the forum. I'm afraid I have no need for crew on my 28ft mobo!
    But I'm sure some sailing folk will be interested.
    Wish I could work your shift pattern, what type of ship are on on?

    If you haven't already done so, paddle across the Avon on a Wednesday evening and pop into Portishead Cruising Club in Pill. You'll be assured of a good welcome and shouldn't have any problem finding someone who needs a crew.

    If you're over the other side of the Channel anytime (I mean Wales, not France!) and fancy a sail please feel free to get in touch.
    All we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.

    Thanks for your replies...

    I did nip over to Pill one night a few years ago but then work caught up with me! It looks like my time is starting to become less hectic work wise so I will be sure to pop over again!
