Crew List

Have you just finished your navigation course and want to try out your skills, or perhaps you fancy the delights of cruiser racing. Perhaps you have had enough of being dunked in the water and needing a wet suit, be warned cruiser racing isn’t always warm and dry!

Skippers are frequently looking for crews.

If you wish to crew please send an email to the secretary with information you wish put on this page. Information will be cut and pasted from the body of the email and displayed until the end of the season or until requested to remove it.

Skippers, if you are looking for crew contact the secretary with details of what you require displayed on this page.

PYRA do not warrant the competence of skippers or seaworthiness of their yachts.

Crews should satisfy themselves of the competence of skippers and seaworthiness of their yachts
