Crewing Opportunities

At the Cruising Yacht Club of SA, we love seeing people experience the thrills and good times that can be had on the water. There are many opportunities for anyone – from experienced sea dogs to novices – to jump on one of our boats to crew for a race.

We offer an easy to use online Crew Register system to match people looking to crew with boats looking for crew. If you would like the opportunity to sail with one of our members, it’s as easy as completing the Crew Register below.

If you don’t have a lot of experience or knowledge, don’t be put off. Many of our friendly skippers are happy to guide and mentor enthusiastic newbies. If you’d like some more in depth guidance and the chance to learn new skills, contact our Marine Academy. There are heaps of great courses on offer for all skill levels!

If you’re not already a member of the CYCSA, you are required to pay a casual race day fee called the ‘CYC Day Pass’. The CYC Day Pass is provided at minimal cost, and allows prospective members to race up to 10 times before they need to subscribe to annual Racing Association membership. For more information, including Racing Membership fees, please visit our Racing Association page.

If you’d like to get involved in racing or have any questions please contact the Racing Manager on 8248 4222 or
