  1. I am available to crew for Sept 2015-Nov 2016 Andrew Brainard abrainard01@gmail.com 021-246-7423 I'd love to sail most RNZYS Wednesdays, some other weekdays, and some weekends I would most like to do the Wed races as a consistent crew, and occasionally will be able to do some weekend harbour races. I’ve love to do some of the longer coastal and I’d be really keen to do some more offshore races. I’m an experienced racer. Almost all of it in keel boats. Lots of around the harbour stuff, quite a few coastal races, and a pair of PacCups (San Fran to Hawa

  5. Hello Auckland, I'm looking for a spot this winter and/or during the next summer series. I can fill most of the spots without screwing up too badly (Keyboards, Trim, Grind, Helm), but most of my experience is on the Bow or Mast (which I can still screw up pretty badly). I've been sailing for quite awhile, lots of around the buoys racing in Auckland, San Francisco, and other places. A couple coastal races (Coastal Classic x2, up and down the California coast). Ive done some offshore racing the Pacific Cup x2 (San Fran to Hawaii), and have captained a few cruising holidays in Tong
