Come sailing on the beautiful waters of Sydney at Middle Harbour Yacht Club located at the Spit, Mosman. With a large and varied program of racing, there is something for everyone from the social to competitive sailors. Our skippers are always looking for crew whether they are experienced or learning and developing their skills.
The Crew Whiteboard - For "on the day" Crewing Opportunities
MHYC maintains a whiteboard for casual crew on race days, which is located in the Breezeway, outside the Sandbar & Cafe. This list of crew is available for Members and non Members who are wishing to sail on the day. Skippers are also able to list their boat name when requiring crew on a race day. Check with the Sailing Office prior to race day to confirm start times and the best time to be available at the Club.
Crew Meet & Greet Evening
The MHYC hosts Crew Meet & Greet evenings, designed to introduce potential crew and yacht owners to each other in a casual, social environment. Yacht owners are encouraged to bring paper slips with information about their boat, the racing they do and the crew they are looking for.
MySail Connect helps racing yachts find suitable crew so they can all get out sailing, win races and have fun. Click here to go to MySail.
Learning to Sail
If you are interested in learning to sail, contact the MHYC tenant, Flying Fish Sail Academy and sign up to one of their courses.
It is important to dress correctly for any sport and sailing is no exception, with safety being your first consideration. Correct attire will prevent you from exposure to the sun or the effects of the cold and injuries.
For your first few lessons/outings, remember to dress warmly in layers that you can take off if needed (it is always better to be overly prepared).
* Shorts, t-shirts, thermals, woollen jumpers
* Hats, headwear, Always wear SUNSCREEN
* Always wear enclosed non-marking shoes (runners), sailing boots or similar
Please note: The sport of sailing can be a high risk activity. There is a significant element of risk in any activity associated with the outdoors and that persons participating as crew on a yacht or boat may be exposed to physical, mental and emotional hazards, adverse weather conditions and/or other unanticipated an unforeseen risks and dangers, and participate at their own risk.
