Crew looking for a team/boat

ENG – Hello, my name is Saša Cook, I would like to join a crew for the Vuurschepenrace and NSR. I live in Wassenaar and am 6’2’’, 180 lbs. I am strong and very physically fit. I am generally available all of the race week. I have a lot of recreational experience sailing J24s. Additionally I have my 50 ton Master Captain License (issued in USA). Please email me on scook@schoodiccapital.com


ENG – Hi, my name is Lisa Tilstra. I’m very interested to crew for the NSR.  It has been a couple years since I have sailed, but I have crewed in regattas in the past.  I’m a quick learner, hard worker, and happy to have any jobs.  My husband is also experienced and interested but available only after Friday.  We have sailed mostly in warm climates/waters but have recently moved to The Hague and are very interested to learn and experience sailing here.  We’re available and eager to crew throughout the season. (we do not speak Dutch unfortunately).   Contact: lisatilstra@gmail.com or 0620087635 WhatsApp


ENG – Hello, my name is Hillevi Boerboom and I would like to join a crew for the Vuurschepenrace and NSR this year. I grew up sailing on all different types of yachts and boats. I have a lot of trial-experience and this will not be my first time offshore. I currently train on a VO60 as genuatrim, but I am very eager to learn and work hard, so I am broadly employable.

It would be a pleasure to join a fun and cool group of people for the NSR. I speak both Dutch and English and I will turn seventeen in three weeks. Please contact me at woef.de.boef@gmail.com or call 06-12404142


ENG – Nico – At the end of May I will return to the Netherlands and I would love to join the NSR. My name is Nico Dillingh, I’m 33 years old, Dutch and about 80 kg. I live in The Hague so I just have to race the NSR 🙂

After finishing this year’s RORC Transatlantic, I’ve sailed all the major regatta’s in the Caribbean: 

-RORC Caribbean 600 (bow, watch leader on Sigma 38)
-Heineken Regatta (trim on Dragonfly 28ft)
-BVI Spring Regatta (mast on J122)
-Les Voiles de St Barth (mast on J122)
-Antigua Sailing week (maintrim, pit, helm on J122)

For the last three regattas I was also the boat captain (J122). However, this is still my first racing season. So during the NSR I would like to learn more (in whatever position) and become a better sailor! And last but not least, also have a bit of fun while doing it…:)

Other sailing experience:

-CWO sailing instructor
-Yachtmaster Offshore (about 8000nm)

If you believe I can be of any help on your boat, please get in touch!

Best, Nico, nicodillingh@gmail.comwhatsapp only 0620338863.

ENG – Carolien de Bruin – Hi all – I am looking to join a crew during the NSR this year, or even over the course of the sailing season and summer. I grew up sailing, was a sailing instructor during my student days, competed in a number of regattas (Croatia, a.o.) and competed in Sonars on the Long Island sound when living in the US.

Now back in Holland, I am keen to pick up sailing again – but also get to a point where I can take my family’s 40 ft boat out with confidence. I am hardworking, easy to sail with, and can be used in different roles onboard. Mostly worked the jib and Genoa during Sonar racing which I appreciate is quite different. Happy to provide further details if useful. Age-wise – I am late thirties if that’s of relevance.

NL – Hi, ik ben Sybrich Willemsma (Syb) en ik zoek een boot voor de vuurschepenrace en de North Sea Race (offshore).

Ik heb de afgelopen 5 jaar op een first 45 geschipperd in Kroatië en zeil regelmatig mee met verschillende wedstrijden (Antwerpenrace, VanUdenReco en woensdagavondwedstrijden vanuit Muiderzand en Monnickendam).  Ik heb zelf een Avance 24 en zeil ook regelmatig mee met een oude Volvo Ocean racer, de Boudragon. Tijdens de laatste VOR editie heb ik op deze boot meegezeild van Scheveningen naar Göteborg en inmiddels help ik als ambassadeur om via de oceanracesacademy jong talent op te leiden voor oceaanzeilen. 

Aan boord kan je mij inzetten voor diverse taken. Ik ben redelijk bedreven in genuatrim, ben zeevast en heb een no nonsense aanpak mentaliteit. Je kan me mailen op s.willemsma@me.com


ENG – Stavros Pagonidis, 25 years old.
I am interested to take part in the Regata and I would like to join a boat if they are looking for crew. I am 25 years of age and I have some experience with dingies (I owned a Laser 2000). Therefore I am looking for a team that does not have very high expectations, only participating for the experience and the fun of it. Looking forward to your response.

ENG – Anna-Liisa Talts
Hey, I’m 22 year old sailing enthusiast from Estonia, currently living in the Netherlands. I would very gladly join a relaxed, fun-loving crew to enjoy the sea during the regatta and why not over the whole season. 

I’ve been raised up on the sea, sailed on 30-35 feet yachts, but haven’t gotten a chance to get on the water for too long.. 

If you are looking for a humble member of the crew for catching some waves and winds, contact me via e-mail annaliisatalts@gmail.com


ENG – Hi potential crew mates, my name is Anna. I am looking for an enthusiastic, eager and just simply awesome crew. I’m from the Netherlands and have been sailing all my life, yearly on the Wadden and IJsselmeer and I have worked as an instructor at a sailing school, sailed across to Norway and around the Mediterranean on a schooner. I have also worked in Croatia as crew and hostess. Other than sailing school related and amateur competition I never done any formal races, but I have always wanted to.

With a new years resolution to sail across the ocean this year a friend suggested participating for the NSR first. Considering I don’t know an existing crew I am looking for a cool group of people to join. As mentioned do I have no formal experience in races, but I am very eager to learn and above all am I very energetic and others usually regard me a positive and enthusiastic asset to their team! I’d love to hear if you’re crew has a place for me. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at annaklapwijk@gmail.com. Cheers, Anna
