We update this page regularly, so please email email@example.com if you'd like anything added, but we do also curate and encourage crew wanted and available posts via JOG Facebook page, which is often helpful for short-turnaround requests.
Ramon Majem Cavaller: I'm keen to join your group of offshore sailors. I have been racing 25 years, actually I have my own boat but for reasons of work I had to come to work to UK. I'm a young sailor with experience in both dinghy and yacht racing (offshore and onshore). I'm looking to find a boat to participate in the 2017 JOG race calendar. If there is any boat looking for crew, I would be ecstatic to fill in any position. If you need any crew or know someone who does, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Charles Tugendhat: I’m very keen to find a skipper who is looking for crew for racing this year, ideally leading to taking part in the Fastnet. I’m a day skipper and dinghy sailor (helm my own Merlin Rocket). No offshore experience yet, but have cruised past the Fastnet lighthouse in fog and force 6 and crewed in Dartmouth regatta and loved both. Happy to make a contribution to expenses and pay my own travel. Reliable, flexible and keen to learn. Please contact me on email@example.com or 07944 745220
Katarina Mackie: As the 2017 race calendar has been finalised I would love to find a boat to crew on for JOG events. I have done lots of sailing but new to racing and would like to give it a try. I am a keen learner and willing to fill any position. If you need any crew for next year or know someone who does, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you
Lorenzo Marsili: Hi JOG members! I am keen to join your group of offshore sailors. I am a young sailor with experience in both dinghy and yacht racing (offshore and onshore). Now that I live in the UK as a student, I am looking to find a crew to participate in the 2017 JOG race calendar. If there is any boat looking for crew, I would be ecstatic to fill in any position. Email me at: email@example.com if you have or know of any crew vacancies. I will be more than happy to give you my sailing CV. Thank you for your time.
Jim Nixon: I am an experienced Australian offshore sailor (23 Syd-Hobarts and over 50 other cat 1 and 2 races, 150,000+ sea miles), mainly on boats under 40 feet ... 3/4 tonners, 1/2 tonners etc. I will be based in France/England for a few months from early May and would love to do some of your JOG races if the opportunity arises. Currently I am sailing master/helm on a revamped S&S 34 named Azzurro which has had 7 podium finishes in the past 3 Hobart races. I am in my late 50s, very fit (keen rock/mountain climber, surfer and bushwalker). Easygoing non-smoker that enjoys a beer. Can do anything on boat. I'm happy to help with boat work, deliveries too.
