Ocean Racing - Cronulla, Sydney, Australia

We are looking for some additional offshore crew for Saturday racing on a Farr 44 ocean racer which has previously raced in the Kenwood Cup in Hawaii and also the Japan Cup with the previous owners.

"Sea Hawk" is a good performer and is constructed from kevlar and nomex foam and is in full race fitout and is always one of the front runners in the Cronulla SC fleet. She has a good turn of speed and performs well on all points of sail but goes particularly well to windward in winds of 25+ knots where she really comes into her own when the light weights in the fleet fall away.

We race on every second Saturday and our races are predominantly in the waters offshore of Botany Bay and Sydney Harbour but some races take us up to Broken Bay and down to Wollongong. We also do the occasional offshore long haul race like the Coffs Harbour series.

We would prefer if you already have some sailing experience and know that you do not suffer from sea sickness. If you do not have sailing experience other relevant offshore experience, like offshore fishing would be advantageous and we would be prepared to train you in sailing skills if you are keen and reliable and show some committment to becoming part of the regular race crew but we do not expect that you will be able to make it to every race but the more the better.

Here is some good footage of our delivery trip from Coffs Harbour back to Port Hacking. The footage shows us approaching Port Stephens and reaching under a jib top doing SOG of 15 knots which was a great ride.



Please let me know if you are interested,

Steve

Crew wanted

Hi
I would be interested in crewing with you.
I have had some limited sailing experience but plenty of power boat experience.
I currently own a Power Cat which is moored in the Hacking .
Ive seen your boat out & about & i am currently a boating member at RMYC & social member at Cronulla Sailing club.
You would find me to be a reliable & willing crew member.
Please let me know if you are still looking for Crew.
Thanks.
