Male Crew wanted

Male crew wanted for world cruise, sailing experience preferred, but will show you the ropes if required. Must be at least 62 years old and fit to drop... My pic below, please post yours as well as your sailing resume.

(Hmmm maybe this is the wrong forum to look for boatscrew)...

Re: Male

I'm definitely 62! WARNING: Sailing around the world and not leaving the V berth may be hazardous to your health.

Re: Male

I think that the lady in the picture would be considered a sailing hazard to a 62 year old man. It is hard to get around the deck while tripping over your tongue.

Re: Male

Am above 62. Would they be taking out extra large life insurance on me?

Re: Male

Might I point out that under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, it is an offence to show a preference for only one gender of applicant when placing an advertisment for the recruitment of staff.

Also...

Since 1st October 2006, it has been unlawful for employers and others to discriminate against a person on the basis of his/her age unlike in the US, where regulations give protection to older workers, the UK rules apply to all age groups. The UK rules were originally implemented by The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006, but have been incorporated into the Equality Act 2010.

Therefore, could you please ammend your advert to reflect the UK sensitivities and in particular, my own preferences as im not 62 or male.
