ÅF Offshore Race | Crew

I get mail from people who want to crew on a yacht in ÅF Offehore Race as well as skippers seeking crew.

There’s the official KSSS “Gastbanken” as well as the Facebook Group “gastbanken”, but don’t hesitate to post a comment below. Usually we’re able to match yachts and crew pretty rapidly (known as “the Blur Effect”). Don’t forget to post mail and/or phone.

    I sailed 15 Round Gotland Races in a row but now it looks like I might be missing out of #16… Will race on anything that float and have a top 5 potential :) Would be a pity to break my straight line of races. Swedish, but writes in english if there is any non Swedish boats looking here for crew.

    My original plan was to take my Farr 30 “Forum ILS” to start but a crash in the last start of the Europeans last week during Kieler Woche have forced me to focus on getting the Farr 30 ready for Race Week and I don´t have the time to get her race ready for Gotland as well.

    Have raced the Round Gotland Race on a variety of boats, from J80 doublehanded to 77 feet IACC, the last 7 years on Sinergia 40 “DataCom”.

    Sailing results in the past includes:

    3 x winner of Round Gotland Race, 2 times as overall winner.
    3 x 1:st in Swedish Championships Offshore IMS/ORCi
    1:st in ORCi European Championships 2008
    2:nd in IMS World Championships 2006
    3:rd in Farr 30 European Championships 2011

    Fick för 45 minuter sedan ett återbud på SRW och ÅF offshore race. Vi är ett gäng som seglar X 362 Perfect Excuse i ORCi 2 som verkar bli en spännade klass i år. Om intresse finns ring mig Stefan 070 5338542 eller stefan.peterson(at)kaptenia.se eller Mikael Lindell 0706 114951.

    Blureffekten funkar vi har nu besätting till nästan hela SRW och ÅF. Tack alla som engagerat er. Jag kommer att ringa någon till av er vi har en plats på SRW Segla väl. Jag kan samtidigt rapportera att JSM blev strålande i Arkösund vi hade lite dassiga vindar i måndags men helheten blev bra. Tack alla glada och engagerade seglare med föräldrar för en härlig vecka. Nu skall jag kappsegla själv.

    Vi har en vakans på Scanner 391 Abalone inför Gotland Runt (ÅF)! Vi kör SRS Alfa och söker en 8:e besättningsman (-kvinna). Slå en signal till mig, Per Geijer (08-5888 5101), om det låter intessant!
