We are looking for some additional offshore
crew for Saturday racing
out of Port Hacking with the Cronulla / RMYC Sailing Club Offshore
fleet 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 Cat 2 race
fitout and is always one of the front runners in the 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.
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
or you are able to control it. 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 and a heap of fun as you can hear.
Here are some photos of "Sea Hawk".
Let me know if you are interested.
