Antonia Porter(079)746-4033Hi - I am actually not looking to crew or volunteer particularly (although I am happy to help out and do what I can) but basically I am looking to travel from Cape Town to mainland Europe or UK (ideally Hamburg?) leaving Cape Town sometime before 23 November (ideally around that date, can't be later than that) and I am happy to pay for my passage (ideally not much more than 1000 euros but can be more if necessary). The reason is that I want to minimise my plane travel (the climate crisis) so what I am really looking for is just a cabin, ideally some internet so I can work a fair amount, and I am happy to help out (although not looking to do much more than a couple of hours a day which is why I am happy to pay for my passage). I am a fit, healthy, strong female in my 30s. I don't have sailing experience, but willing to learn. If there is interest, please let me know on or +27 797 464033. Thanks! Antonia

Alberto Cuesta Canada+61410745216I've been crewing for the last three years in Kookaburra I out of Williamstown, Australia. Kookaburra I was one of the yachts built by Australia to compete on the '87 America's Cup (Kookaburra III was the one that finally competed - My experience is mainly as midbow, mast or bowman, grinding when needed. I would be happy trimming in not very competitive setups. I'm 5'7" and 65 Kg. I have a Safety and Sea Survival Certification, and a First Aid Certification, although I've got limited open seas experience, having sailed with waves below 3m only. I don't get seasick, though. I'll be in Cape Town from October 22 until January 11, and would love to crew on a yacht for the evening series. I can commit to sail every race of the series from 22 October onwards. I've never sailed in Cape Town before, so I'd appreciate some advice on the gear I'll need, as I can take only a limited amount of stuff with me. My sailing with Kookaburra was competitive, but not professional, meaning that we would do our best to win and learn to become better, but we rarely sailed just for training. Having a good time was a priority over winning every time. I enjoyed that kind of setup, but I'd also enjoy a more relaxed pace if offered, what I like most is just to sail and to be on the water.
Mathew Thomas Gunston0828589470I have completed my day skippers and would love the opportunity to learn more as well as get some sailing done.
