  2. Stephan Rieger

    Hi everybody,

    My name is Stephan, I moved to Brisbane (Indooroopilly) in October 2022 and want to make the best of now living by the ocean.
    I‘m looking to join a sailing buddy program or a crew that meets on a regular basis. My experience is still limited to only a handful of Events and theoretical knowledge.
    The sailing clubs in Brisbane unfortunately don’t offer quite what I’m looking for so here I am.
    I’m offering availability for recreational sailing sessions, I’m highly motivated and eager to learn and once a team has formed, participate in racing events as well.

    I just really wanna enjoy the time on the water and make friends along the way.
    I’m keen to hearing from you and wish you all good wind.

  3. Sean Greenhalgh

    Hi Southport Yacht Club,

    I live down in Coolangatta. I don’t have any experience, but want to learn. My dad used to sail but never taught us, he always fantasized about living on a yacht and so do I. Maybe I can make that dream come true. I would love to learn. I’m 35 and fit for my age. I work a physical job so I would be happy working at heights and running around.

    I’d mainly be available for weekends!

    Kind regards,
    Sean Greenhalgh

    • James

      Hey 👋,

      I’m new to the Goldcoast Australia and looking to give as much of my free time as possible to sailing this beautiful coastline. Can anyone help hook me up with some like minded people who might appreciate the extra hands whilst giving someone the opportunity to live out a dream of learning to sail and how to keep a sail boat? I have some experience on the water and have some basic experience, RYA introduction to sailing, power boat level 3 ticket, VHF radio licence but came away from boating some years ago to raise a family and focus on carpentry and joinery. I’m now ready to re explore my old passion for the sea and hope to find some sailors on the east coast who might be able to help.
      Anything admin can do to help or any suggestions would be greatly appreciated 😊
      many thanks,

      • Lea Foster

        Hello James,
        Please give me a call. I have some crewing opportunities available. 0416925815

    Hi there,
    I am brand new to sailing. I spent ten days sailing a tall ship – the Young Endeavour – at age 17.
    Now in my late 30’s I am wanting to learn the ropes from scratch.
    Living near Agnes Water but willing to travel within a couple of hours (Bundaberg, Gladstone…maybe Mackay or Sunshine Coast)
    I do have work and family commitments at home. Only work Thurs to Sat at present so could potentially spend 3-4 day block learning. Happy to contribute financially and practically.

I’m out on the water every day as long as there’s wind. Over the years I have developed great forecasting and wind reading skills, as well as a natural knack for getting the most out of the slightest breeze. Happy to teach kitesurfing and/or wing foiling in exchange. I own a profitable Youtube channel and have waterproof cameras and plenty of video and editing skills if you want to do some filming. If you want a reliable and fun crew member, please text me.

  29. Hi, we are a family of 5 ( M, D and 3 x boys aged 14, 12 and 10) and are considering selling our house and buying a catamaran. Before we do that I was wondering if you know of anyone either on the GC ro Brisbane who owns a 45′ to 60′ Cat that would be interested in having us on board for a day to see if we all like the experience? We would be happy to provide catering and/or fuel costs if required.

    Watching alot of “sailing Zatara”, “Sailing La Vagabond” and other U-Tubers it has spurred on our interest in the adventure but I think it is neccessary for all of us to experience this first to see if we would like it.

    This being said if you know of anyone who might be interested please forward my email to them so we could make contact.

    Thank-you for your time



  30. Amanda Bowles

    I am wanting to complete my keelboat course and continue courses in the future for safety and sea survival, first aid refresher, radio course and offshore skippering and racing.

    If you need an extra pair of hands, I’d love to be there!

    Hi, my 10yo and 12yo son have 1 lesson left of tackers 3 before they start junior fleet.

      Hope you are well.

      I have completed my sailing course at the Pacific Sailing too, and am also keen to be back on the water.

      I’ve moved from Syd a couple of years ago and am trying to find some crew opportunities.

      I love sailing, but unfortunately I haven’t met anyone here at the Coast who shares the same hobby, and my hubby is not very keen either!

      Perhaps we could go for a coffee at the yacht club and see if we can find a boat to crew on!

      My mob is 0487195717.

      Happy sailing!

  47. Hi,

    Compared to everyone else on here, I have very little experience. I sailed dinghies as a kid and my partner and I have recently purchased a 36foot monohull. I’d love to be a casual crew member on a boat to get a bit more experience. I’m very good at being told what to do and am pretty fit and confident on the water.

    I’m hoping to do a few courses etc before we set sail. But, am just dead keen to get out on the water.

    Hi all,

    I recently moved to Gold Coast and am hoping to get into sailing here. I lived in Sydney seven years ago and did a year of competitive onshore and offshore races on a Beneteau 32 footer.

    I am hoping to get back into sailing and can commit and attend regularly.

    Thank you,

  55. Hi Skippers,

    I’d like to join a crew racing in the Flat Rock race starting on Sat 24Jul.

    I’m on the Gold Coast for a while – I normally race out of the CYCA in Sydney on a Sydney 38. {I entered Qld before the recent Covid-19 issues arose}.

    I have been cruising and racing all my 55 years; I’m fit and can sail in any position on the boat – from helm to headsail 🙂 I have raced at local, state, national and international levels.

    If you’re looking for crew for the Flat Rock race please contact me 🙂

    Kind regards,
    Frederic Hemming

    Hello Sailors
    I have recently purchased and partly refurbished a Shaw 650 Sportsboat (4 Shaw) and need crew for SYC Hollywell races on Wednesday and Saturdays as well as Sportsboat regattas like Airlie beach. Looking for both casual experienced crew and willing to train less experienced who are committed to a regular sailing program. Contact Stephen 0403824281 or

  58. Tony Shaw (Owner)

    ‘No Secrets’ is a race optimised 34′ Dehler Optima keelboat with a competitive race record. I am looking for experienced or semi-experienced sailors to join our crew pool for Offshore and Twilight racing this coming season. Because we have a couple of crew in training at present I can’t take EOI’s from people without sailing experience. What I need are sailors who can come onboard, demonstrate reasonable skills and immediately add value.. Sailing must be your number one priority, It won’t work for me if sailing is one of five other activities (apart from work of course) you have on your agenda. Regular availability is essential as is the ability to communicate. I’m also looking for sailors who understand what commitment means and sailors who can demonstrate that they want to be part of a team intending to succeed at a reasonably high level. If you think this is you, call Tony on 0411 429 527.

  62. Hi family!

    I’m Jae. I’m a 28y.o woman from the Northern Rivers.

    I’m looking to crew on a boat heading up to far North Queensland.

    I’ve just started sailing so will need someone whose capable and comfortable to teach me the ropes (or the Halliards 😉) to sail with. I’d like to leave as early as this month (March) and can be super flexible with schedule, and the time it takes us to get up there.

    I’m not sure why I’m being called to go there, but I feel it in my bones.

    I’d like to be there by Winter.

    I’m looking for a fun, young (or young at heart) and energetic crew to sail with. I’m eager to learn and super fun to be around.

    Really forward to hearing from you soon.

    Kind regards,

    0400 786 910
