Crewing Opportunities

Crew members working on a sail boatCrewing is a fun, safe, accessible and affordable way to participate in sailing at affiliated clubs.

There are Discover Sailing Courses that provide a structured introduction to crewing with a Yachting Australia qualified Instructor at an accredited Discover Sailing Centre.

To find out more read the Discover Sailing Courses section.

Crewing allows you to get out on the water without having to do a course or own a boat – it’s that simple to get into sailing!

What is Involved

Club members who own boats are always looking for crew. You don’t need any prior sailing experience and you don’t need to commit to crewing on an ongoing basis, so it’s a great way to get out on the water and find out more about the sport. To find out more go to the What is Involved page.
