Get Involved in Racing – Crewing Opportunities
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
The Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron aims to assist and facilitate opportunities for aspiring crew and skippers. You can take the following steps:
- Completing relevant Sailing Academy Courses or acquiring equivalent experience through Social Sailing Classes or the Sail Our Boats Sailing/Membership Package which includes a Crew Membership ($37.00/month) and 10 or 20 x3 hour Sailing Lessons/Sessions (10 costs $360.00 and 20 costs $640.00).
- Obtain a Sailing Membership with the club, starting at $37.00/month.
- Further developing your skills and experience by joining a crew in Off the Beach Club Racing through our Club Elliott 6 Racing program on an RQYS Elliott. We also advertise casual or regular positions on RQYS yachts to the Club Elliott 6 crew and skippers.
- Crewing and Networking with a crew in WAGS Racing is also a good option if you are available Wednesdays.
From this point, sailors may take a range of different paths, such as purchasing their own boat and acquiring their own crew, joining an established Crew on an RQYS Member-Owned Yacht, or just continuing on in the Social Racing Program. Those looking to get involved in division yacht events and off-shore racing would benefit in registering themselves to be displayed on the Available Crew List. Viewing the Skippers Looking For Crew page could also help you find the yacht/crew you are looking for.
