    ‘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.

    Hi there looking to gain some experience and meet new people. we have moved from Rockhampton to tweed. I am an active person and would like to crew on a sailing boat.

  6. 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
