Classic ocean-going Vertue moored in Poole, Dorset.
Sailing from Poole to different locations and for different durations, e.g. IOW, South West coast, Cornwall, Ireland, France.
Any other activities if interested, e.g. fishing, snorkelling, diving (I have an Open Water qualification but haven't dived much and would need to get some new equipment).
Helping out if desired, e.g. learning to beach boat.
I took my Offshore Yachtmaster at Hamble school in 2010. I purchased an ocean-going classic Vertue in 2014 and renamed her Natural Selection. I have spent 2 years fitting her out and learning about her. I started single-handed sailing her a year ago but need a crew to sail overnight further afield.
I am a retired maths textbook author, born 1955.
I represent the HumanistsUK in West Sussex and set up groups in Chichester and Horsham. I have several no-for-profit writing projects in hand.
Other interests include DIY, tree climbing, films.

I am a relatively new owner of a very sturdy and comfortable Fisher 34 motor sailor based in Chatham Kent. The boat is very tricky to sail single handed. As I am inexperienced I am looking for competent crew/day skippers to come to Kent to give me a hand on weekend sails in the Medway.

I am looking for 1 or 2 crew to include in our crew pool. We already have a pool of 5 people and we usually aim to sail with 3-4 crew. The boat is a brand new Arcona 410. She is an extremely responsive and well-equipped performance cruiser. We sailed her from Stockholm to Hamble in June and these days we are mainly cruising around the Solent on weekends. Our future cruising plans include short trips along the south coast of England and long-weekend trips across the English Channel to France. We are ideally looking for like-minded people who we'll enjoy spending time with and who have obtained at least their day skipper or have similar level of experience. If you are interested for some easy-going but fun cruising please send an informal sailing CV and tell a little bit about yourself. You can reach me on Best regards.

Join me as crew for a day with a Yachtmaster instructor.

Prior to my Yachtmaster exam which I've booked for a couple of weeks' time, I have a YM instructor coming to the club on SUNDAY 4 SEPTEMBER to give me some practice.

This would be an opportunity to pick up what a YM examiner is looking for at someone else's expense - and doubtless to learn from my mistakes. Lots of opportunity for you to do the actual sailing - if I were to my usual practice of effectively single-handing, I would fail straight away!

I'm happy with people from novice to experienced. Sense of humour and good spirit essential. I sail a 39' Beneteau from the club. I will be providing modest food through the day.

Please reply by email in the first instance - as I'm off sailing abroad until then!

We are currently in Scotland going cruising round the Western Isles for a while before coming back down to Hamble. We are tootling about to get to Lochmaddy (on Uist) by 8th June. We are then taking part in the first St. Kilda race which is 100NM out round St. Kilda and back which promises to have excellent parties, then gently making our way back to Hamble by the end of June. The boat is an Oyster 45 called Degree of Latitde. We have spaces for all that period, people come and go for as long as they want. Come and have fun.
