Hi there,

I had the opportunity to sail with my employers teams for the corporate games here in Sydney. Did some in-shore races with them so decided to sign up with one of the sailing schools. Ive since done all the in-shore RYA training towards ICC certification and some private lessons.

Im now looking for some opportunities to gain more experience sailing and meet other sailing enthusiasts, whilst i continue chipping away at the formal training.

Happy to jump on for a morning or day sailing around the harbor.

Doing a delivery would be really great, even just grinding the whole time. I would be happy to fly one way to get there or get back depending on the circumstances.

Non-smoker, late 20s, male.

Please either pm me, or email me on dean /AT/ fragfest - com - au

Re: Sydney, Australia

hey mate.. get down to the CYCA at rushcutters and walk around on race day letting people know youre available.. make up a little business card or similar.. You should get a ride or two no probs. Also around Hammo race week, there are always boats looking for crew deliver and return. Its over now, but worth remembering for next year. Check out the hammo site and Airlie site.

I got a ride up there a few years ago then a run to NZ following that. made for a great few months off.
