Queensland Australia

Crew wanted

My usual annual routine is to leave my Bavaria 50' at Yeppoon (Central Queensland) over winter, delivering her north from the Gold Coast soon after Easter and bringing her south in the cyclonic summer months.

She's a big, quick boat rigged for short handing.

I'm always after crew to do coastal hops, time indeterminate, cruising the waters of the reef. The cruising ground is between Thomas Island and Gladstone - south of the over-loved Whitsundays and out of reach of charter boats. Happy to go way further with the right crew. Explore Cape York? Yep.

Finances? Share food costs and chip in for a bit of diesel, get yourself to and from the boat.

There are a few parameters. You need to be reasonably fit, relaxed, intelligent, able to hold a conversation and have a sense of both humour and responsibility. Sailing skills are really desirable, some experience is necessary but I can teach you. The boat's (deliberately) easy to run.

Me? Australian bloke, 60. Having a great life that I'm happy to share. Highly experienced sailor, fit, adventurous, smart - had a career now it's time not to work. I'm friendly, however direct about my expectations.

Crew of any gender welcome. For the record I'm gay and this advert is NOT about anything sexual whatsoever. If this is a problem it says more about you than me - feel free to move on to your next narrow minded not-too-good adventure.

Otherwise come and have a lot of fun. Two to three crew at any one time. Couples fine!

Re: Queensland Australia

Hi Pat,
I am 57, male, ex Navy (25 years) seaman and have always counted myself as a good seaman. I have a competent crew qual (done on Swarbrick 40') with some sailing experience.
I also have a master <24 and coxswain ticket. I am poor at mechanics but really want to learn.
Maybe because I'm ex military I can be a bit abrupt at times but don't realise it. I have a dry sense of humour (which I think is funny)

I am approaching retirement and want to gain experience to get my own yacht in a few years.

I intend to take some leave at the end of the year and would be very happy to do some sailing.

Cheers, Mark

Re: Queensland Australia

Hello Pat~
I want to throw my name in the bucket, as I plan on being out your way in the future!
I will hopefully know how to sail by then and will only need finer tuning by then~which I think you may know.
