Crew Available

  • Pascale Whyte 0409 165 268

Looking to crew during the Petersville. I am an extremely experienced sailor with 20 years of sailing and yacht racing in Australia (Geelong, Melbourne, Whitsundays) and France *Giraglia Yacht race in St Tropez). I am able to do the following crew positions: jib, main and spinnaker trimming, office or piano. I am based in Melbourne and the Whitsundays.

  • Denis Collins 0432 247 627

I’m looking to crew for the regatta. I currently crew on a 38ft Dufor main sheet trim and helm in Royal Geelong and I’m based in Blairgowrie over the summer.

I have been racing keelboats at West Vancouver Yacht Club  (WVYC) for over 5 years, including Melges 24s, J22s and a CNC30. In July 2023 my mum and I bought a VXOne Sportsboat that I have begun to actively race on the VXOne West coast circuit, as well as in local Club events. Sportsboats are my passion. In April 2023 I raced for the first time in our Club’s signature offshore overnight event called “Southern Straits” on an XP44 called Phoenix working as pit. We won the long course in very challenging conditions. In September 2023 I raced in Royal Vancouver Yacht Club’s inaugural Women’s Invitational in their Club Elliot 6 Sportsboats (skippering). Our team won the overall regatta, but not the knock out winner takes all last race. It helped that we had a former Canadian Olympian, Karen Johnson as part of our team!

  • Max Meschers 0404 540 426
