Topic : Crew for 2009

I know I have asked this before, but is anyone interested in crewing me at various events this year.

Ideal person would be tall, strong, fit, extremely good sailor and about 10 stone, to make up for the fact that I am a little bit heavy, short and don't hike too hard for too long and I need any extra help I can get. The ideal person would also be happy to sail with me all season and work as a team and would be able to take the fact that getting a position above 20 out of 40 in a Silver Tiller event is infact a victory in its own right, as it not comming last.

However, as beggers can't be choosers, I am happy to compromise, so if you are keen on sailing and want to crew just one or many, are too heavy or too light, or just a beginner and want to learn, please let me know, as I would like to do some sailing this year.
