Volunteer looking to sail
CarlosQuinto posted a topic in Crew FinderHi! I’m a 28 years old from Argenrina looking to volunteer to start learning sailing. I don’t have experience but looking for it. Only know some basics. I’m really fast learner and autodidactic, but to learn first I need a boat and a captain where I can learn from. I can pay my food and expenses if necessary. Also, I can help in maintenance tasks, as I have experience in car smash repair, construction and more. I really can help in exchange of learning sailing which is one of my dreams. Also, I’m ready to start now if needed Thanks!

Yacht Trailer for sale
Yotasorus posted a topic in ClassifiedsHi Everyone, I have a Yacht Trailer to sell. Built i'm told for an SR26 with a lifting keel, but currently setup for a fixed keel Farr 727. https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2211630249 I'm hoping it will get some good use. What a difference being able to do a couple hours each night in the driveway, instead of rowing out to the mooring and then remembering the thingy still in the back of the car.

PIC Coastal Classic Yacht Race 2016
RainbowChaser posted a topic in MarineTalkSAILONLINE RACE START: Sailonline is delighted to be hosting the virtual version of this year's Coastal Classic New Zealand classic race although instead of our trusty Seacarts, this year sees us racing the Young 11 polar. Sailonline sorely misses SOLer yachtyakka who regularly raced the course on Promise and who had been readying the Pied Piper, BeepBeep for racing this year before his early death. Cast a thought to the skies and yakka’s memory as you race up the coast this time. Sailonline's Race Description: With the N Hemisphere sailing season virtually over, racing in New Zealand

The 2016 iteration of the Mount Gay Rum Young 88 Single Handed Championships is round one of the Mount Gay Rum Young 88 123 Series. Eleven boats lined up for the honour of first on line and the awesome Bruce Elliott Memorial Trophy – and the bragging rights that come with it.

I will ask for a participation of $25 to a crew fund to keep he
Sailing crew in Auckland
leniwiec posted a topic in MarineTalkHello everyone, I'm looking for some people to go sailing with on a more or less regular basis. I live and work in Auckland - so I'm available during the week in the evening and most weekends. I've got 5 weeks sailing experience [2 weeks open sea between the Croatian islands and 3 weeks confined water]... so I'm not able to sail myself but at least know the basics. I'm also open to help with the boat [maintain, repair, whatever is needed] - since I like working with my hands and it can never be a bad thing to learn such stuff =)... So if you go sailing in the Auckland region and could need
