I am a member of SBSC as well as SYC .I live locally. I moved my yacht Hush - a Cavalier 350 SL 35ft, down to Hidden Harbour last year and did a few twilights at SBSC until she was sold ( too bloody quick LOL!) I owned Hush for 16 years and extensively sailed and managed her both locally and offshore races, as skipper trim and mainly Bow.Have done 2 Melb Hobarts / 1 Launie Hobart 10 + Melb Stanley, King Islands, Apollo Bay on Hush. Also 3 Adelaide to Port Lincoln races and Lincoln regatta ( 2 on Hush) ,Melb Devonport x 3 - 2014 I won the race being only female skipper Have competed in 3 Sydney to Hobarts, Overseas regattas including Kho Samui, Darwin to Dilli .Involved with sailing on land base roles- a tale for another day I currently sail on YKnot with Rob Rainsford for the last 18 months- however the boat is up North atm. So that's me. Anyhoo, basically I just want to go out and sail and get back into the SBSC races and have fun. Oh, I've been trying to get off the bow for the last 20 years, but happy to do any role. Looking for a fun and competitive boat that I can get lost in sailing.

I have previously sailed small dinghy type sailing boats off Frankston beach when I was a teenager, I was a member of Frankston Yacht club at that time also and undertook learn to sail courses at FYC. It has been more than 25 years since I have taken part in any racing or club activities. I have previously crewed on a larger keel boat 'Beneteau' during a twilight series out of the Geelong Yacht Club (this was at least 20 years ago). I would like to take up this again for the social aspect and now that I am living near Frankston I would like to become crew member for the twilight series at Safety Beach. With some training I think I would be able to get up to speed quickly.

I am a member at Safety Beach Sailing club and recently purchased a Taser. I have completed the OTB training course at the club, but not yet confident to skipper my own boat. I am wanting to continue learning from a confident and experienced OTB sailor who will skipper my boat while I crew for them.

I have recently moved to Safety Beach and I m interested in crewing on the Friday Twilight Pursuits. I used to live and sail in Melbourne, St Kilda, RMYS. First on a Columbia 27 and recently on an ADAMS 10.6. I m happy to help onboard whatever required, not so familiar with the Spinnaker and won't like to climb up the mast...

I have recently moved to Safety Beach in an apartment on the north side of the entry to the channel into Martha Cove. I Started sailing in 1970 at the age of 5yo in a Pirate, a Dutch dinghy similar to a sabot. I crewed in a Spanker, similar but slightly smaller than a Sharpie from 1972 - 1977 I got my first Laser in 1977 at the age of 12 and raced the lasers in the Netherlands until 1980 when my family migrated to Australia. I raced Lasers at RQYS, Brisbane sailing club and Oxley Sailing club in Brisbane from 1980 until 1985. I raced crewed on a 505 & 16' Hobies and skippered my 16' Mosquito for the next 4 years. I crewed on 30', 40' and 50' over the next 25 years and got myself a laser again in 2014 which I have been sailing infrequently over the last 5 years. I have just joined Mount Martha sailing club to start racing Lasers (full rig) again, however my fitness levels are not as good as they used to be. I have been sponsoring the PIF series since 2017 and have chartered a yacht for the Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne regattas, until Covid last year. I am comfortable in any role/position, however my Spinnaker experience lacks and needs some training. I last was member at RQYS in 2014 and was last member at Metung Yacht club 2018 until 2019 and have just joined Mount Martha in the last 2 weeks. I have held a powerboat license since 1985 and have recently purchased a PWC and upgraded my license to suit. I am keen to get out on the bay and particularly to do the Friday evening twilight and Saturday morning keelboat sailing and happy to do whatever necessary or needed, preferably in a 30+ footer.

Guy Hoevenaars 0417161339 2020-01-22
I’ve done a bit of sailing on hobies and sabots, and crewed a couple of time in bigger keels. Also got my marine licence 2 years ago. I’m looking to do some bareboating in the Whitsundays at the end of 2020 and would like to get some keel boat experience, also may also bring my partner as she would like to be involved as well.

Des Carroll 0418 511 255 2019-07-15
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.
