Any other Comment: 
I am a passionate sailer: social yet competitive. I enjoy the strings, but can cope with all positions on the boat (rarely in front of the mast) and am never shy of conversation (on the rails), but I do prefer trimming. I understand that sailing is more than Sheets & Sails – it’s cleaning, packing, maintenance and practice. I’m looking for an ongoing spot with a crew with a bit of camaraderie, culture, grit and giggles. Preferably 30ft +, off shore…

Wednesday Twilights (Summer - Daylight Savings Only)
Classes I have sailed in and my crew experience:
Other relevant experience:
We have both done competent crew and day skipper courses. Simon completed the Pt Lincoln this year on Academy 1 and we have both crewed throughout this year's twilight season. Simon is often put on main and I have done a variety of roles - neither of us is set on any particular role. I grew up sailing dinghies but have not had a lot of experience on cruisers. We'd love to gain a experience on a range of boats and would love the opportunity to join your crew for a week or on a more permanent basis. Feel free to contact us if you need just one or both of us.

Received from Harley Cole-Puls - April 2016
I am interested in:
Racing Sundays (Winter Series - Fortnightly),Racing Offshore,Cruising
Classes I have sailed in and my crew position:
I have not sailed before. However, I am keen to learn - and have signed up for the weekend crew course in May 2016. From there I am looking to go through the available courses and crew to get experience up to Day Skipper by Mid next year. I am looking for a crew spot initially in the winter series to help build up my practical skills, and am willing to commit for at least a season (and then some) and build some good friends in the local sailing community. I am amenable to other crewing positions that come up as well - particular cruising boats.

Other relevant experience:
While never having sailed, I do have a history of kayaking, have tried my hand at rowing, currently do short course triathlons (rest assured I can swim, and I know what it feels like to get close and personal with lots of cold water and jellyfish), and other adventure activities (ie last year I completed the Mawson trail, next year I am looking at doing the Heyson trail).
Any other Comment
I'm looking for a competitive boat, would like to do the winter season and if it goes well the longer gulf races. My interest is to learn about racing tactics and navigation. I'm fit and like to work. Also reliable and punctual.
