Experience / Qualifications


Lauren  Email

I was a collegiate level athlete in sailing (at the University of South Florida) and I am a US sailing level 1 instructor and have been coaching optis, lasers, and 420s for the past two years. I was hoping to find a place where I can  find boats to crew on for races.

Have owned and sailed many types of dinghies and more latterly cruisers. 

Skippered my own boats (Sun 2000, First 21.7 and Sun Odyssey 33i) five times on the Round the Island race between 2008 and 2015. Best finish was in 2010 when we managed 176/1700 and 17th in our group.

Skippered three cross channel trips from the Solent to Guernsey and spent summers cruising the channel islands and south coast of UK.

Crewed on two Round the Island Races on board First 25.7 and First 31.7. Crewed over multiple years on Portsmouth "evening series” races around the cans in the harbour. This is a handicap series and competition was fierce - we never won but had a few second places!  Crewed on Nab Tower season end race from Portsmouth round the Nab Tower and back.

Have my RYA Day skipper (sail and power) and radio licence in the UK and have frequently helped out either at race starts, laying marks or following juniors around in a safety boat.

Grew up sailing dingies at RHKYC middle island and have now recently moved back to HK and am keen to get back into sailing in HK waters again after a few years of being land-locked!.  Am interested in any activities out on the water, including racing, and cruising so please let me know if you have space and are looking for an eager crew member.  I live just a stone throw from RHKYC Shelter Cove so am particularly keen on anything out Hebe Haven way, but willing to go anywhere needed.

 52 year old Swedish guy travelling and staying in Hongkong from time to time...  mostly over weekends.

I have been sailing since I was a kid, and started with dinghy racing in early days. A member of Royal Swedish Yacht Club In Sweden, KSSS.

I have a good experience in racing, both ORCi with X41, MUMM (Farr) 36 and other types of yachts up to 45 feet.

I’m a part of a racing team in Sweden, Rocket Racing, competing with a X35 in the World Championship.

I’m looking for someone occasionally needing an extra hand over weekends or for short offshore races.

With some planning I can arrange my trips to fit for longer distance. I’m looking forward to get in contact with sailors in HK.

Alex Setchina


Day Skipper qualified (Solent, UK). I am Russian-Norwegian and have just moved to Hong Kong and would be keen to continue sailing. Used to the harsher conditions of the Solent in the UK, so imagine Hong Kong to be even more enjoyable. Have done several Sunsail races (mainly in the pit or helming occasionally) in the Solent, UK; Round the Island race (isle of Wight, UK) and a couple of corporate Flotilla races. I'm resilient and easy going and would love to get involved.
