A few days ago, for the first time this year, I had to turn on the fireplace and dig out my winter wardrobe.

It seems like the unseasonably warm autumn weather has come to an end (at least for those on the south-east coast).

Sydney harbour delivered some exciting sailing on Sunday, with reported gusts up to 45 knots as the CYCA Winter Series fleet battered their way around the course. Thanks to the team at Spot-a-Yacht who braved the conditions to get the fantastic shot featured above.

If you're feeling brave enough to take on some winter sailing conditions, check out some of the latest crewing opportunities from around the country.

Available Crewing Positions:

Papillon, Sydney, NSW
