Specify if you are Crew (=anyone without a boat). Or if a Skipper, please note boat specs & a harbor name:


[All] What sailing schedule are you looking for: Weekdays, weekends, daysail, longer cruises?

Weekends and holidays. Can plan time out of work to do longer cruises.

[Skippers] Describe the sailing you do (race, cruise, etc) Are you looking more for deckhands or social guests? Describe what you expect onboard. Do you want especially agile or weather hearty crew? Will you teach active learners? Please say more:


[Crew] What are you hoping to do: Cruise, race, casually socialize, do vigorous sail handling, beginner learning, gain more helm experience? Do you like it when the boat tips? Describe both your past on-water experience & what you're looking for now:

Cruise, take the helm, be active crew. Experienced ocean sailing long time ago-loved it. Consider myself beginner for now until I get my skills back up to speed. Like it when boat tips. I've sailed small vessels (26 ft) in Newport/Jamestown harbors under sail. I want to regain comfort level under sail and improve crew skills on larger craft. Would like to experience racing- love the challenge and love to work hard.

[All] If you wish to, use this space to note any courses in sail, sea or air. Useful knowledge such as CPR, Wilderness First Aid, EE, ME, Diesel, Nav, culinary or military background. Do you play an instrument, take great photos or plan a good party?

I took the USCG Weekend Navigation Course. I attended courses this weekend at the Women's Sailing Conference; diesel engines, plotting a course; and crew overboard with maneuvers in the bay. Had the chance to sail a 30 ft sailboat but we were under power during maneuvers. Grew up flying small aircraft and there is similarity with commandeering a craft on the water with one in the air. Took to sailing the first time out.


I took sailing lessons years ago in Newport, RI. I live in Newburyport now and want to get skills up to date. I am neither an owner nor club member at the moment.
