Seeking 1-2 week trips to gain sea miles. Can travel.
Looking to gain sea miles by joining trips of up to 3 weeks, preferably starting or finishing in Australia but happy to travel.
I’m recently semi-retired and with the kids largely out of the way and time largely on my side, I’m looking to re-aquaint myself with sailing. Other than recently completing the 5 day Competent Crew course, I have crewed on a ~500nm trip on the Queensland coast.
I’m keen on regular midweek day or overnight trips in South East Queensland to get some experience up, and am happy to put my hand up and fly further afield for longer passages to help out anyone who is open to giving me a go.
I’m a keen learner, physically and mentally fit, enjoy a range of other outdoor pursuits (sea-kayaking, canoeing, bike packing, hiking) and am pretty easy going, and self-reliant. I don’t lose my sh*t easily, can follow directions and enjoy a good belly laugh. I like to pay my way and pull my weight.
I’d be happy to meet up sometime if you’d like to see if we’re a good fit.
