Daryl Geary Sailor. Daryl has been crewing on boats regularly since 2000 and now he races his own dinghy. He has crewed on many different types of boats including; yachts, sports boats, cateramans and dinghies. Daryl Geary Sailor/Inventor/Designer +

I'm passionate about sailing. I rediscovered this by chance on a year's working visa whilst traveling through Australia, where for the first time I stepped on to a dinghy. Some time after my travels I returned to my hometown Torquay from London and found myself touting about down the harbour as I did as a ten year old trying to hitch a ride on a boat. In 2000 I got a ride at my local sailing club and have been crewing and sailing ever since.
I'm a great believer that the best way to learn how to sail is to crew on as many boats as possible, and there's plenty of boats out there looking for crew!

I was lucky enough to start sailing at a young age – my dad has always been a big fan and we spent many a summer holiday romping across the Channel and my cousin Jo and I spent hours in full oilies hanging our legs over the side, getting soaked as we crashed through the waves.
Fast forward 20 years and I found myself on a boat with my dad again. He had always wanted to sail across the Atlantic and in 2008 his plans came to fruition. Then at the last minute one of his crew couldn't make it, so dad rang me and I did the leg from Bermuda to the Azores. It took 17 days, three of them in a Storm Force 11. Happily, during those fretful hours, I was able to put my life in order and I decided I had to get home because I was going to marry Daryl (previously his only relationship to me had been as my landlord!) Daryl turned out to have an RS400 and the rest, as they say, is history Marvellous! We have since had many happy adventures on that boat and I would wholeheartedly encourage everyone to give sailing a try.

After a lifetime as a leading provincial newspaper man, Peter “retired” and entered a busy new life editing a string of company newspapers, started a corporate golf days business, and then edited a golf magazine. While golf has always been his passion, he takes a lively interest in all sports, including sailing, and looks forward to helping sailquest.net to become the nationwide success it is bound to be. He also has a personal interest - Daryl Geary is his stepson and, says Peter, “Daryl is a wonderful free spirit with an impeccable integrity. He’s a breath of fresh air in a murky world.”

"Thanks, looks interesting. We have a couple of ways in which this would be useful. We have just bought the club a Cork 1720 to boost the pool of keelboat racers so anything to manage the crew lists would be really useful."
