Tristan Batey  0417 581 895

Have been sailing with MYC twilight and Saturday Sails the 2nd half of the summer series with a couple of Div 1 boats. Spent a fair bit of time around various regattas over the years and pick up a few things along the way. Wouldn’t say I’m the most experienced sailor but keen to learn more and progress my sailing knowledge & skills and become a regular at SBCC. I enjoy the elements and am interested in racing inshore & offshore all year round.

Des Carroll  0418 511 255  

I live in Safety Beach and am looking to crew casually or on a semi-regular basis on a keelboat at SBSC all year round. I can often be available at short notice.  Most of my experience is in OTB and trailerables (monos, cats and tris) and at 70yo I sail a Hobie Tandem Island kayak for pleasure.  I weigh 82 kg and keep fit through regular cycling and/or Nordic walking. I am a member of the SBSC Tower Team and have all courses plotted in my GPS and have a VHF hand-held.

I’m moored at Martha cove with a power boat and a resident of MtMartha.  I have been really keen to experience sailing.  I’m a fit and healthy male and would love the opportunity to be actively involved in crewing on a sailing boat.  I have sailed on the odd occasion in my younger years but never had the time to devote to this until now.  I am available most Friday evenings. Feel free to call me any time.
