CrewFinder is for people who are actively seeking sailing connections. Skippers get help finding the particular type of Crew they're seeking and can network with fellow Skippers. Crew find all types of sailing opportunities. Beginners can meet mentors and "the boatless" often get the chance to build-up their helm-time.
The function of this sailing network is toshare information,contribute knowledge, grow skills, broaden on-water experience, and meet sailing buddies you will enjoy, respect, and find dependable. This starts with you developing an informative Profile that tells others what you bring and hope to gain here. Posting a current photo in which you are recognizable helps with this as well.
To open more of the sailing we all came here to do, we really cater to our Skippers. They define the terms of their sailing day and specify the Crew characteristics they seek. We are not a sailing school, but many Skippers do enjoy mentoring. People who join to explore an emerging interest in sailing are welcome. But we do ask that you be here to actively engage in the sport, contribute and have an authentic desire to actually sail.
If you RSVP to sail, you're offering to be of service in helping to operate a sailboat. Before you offer, learn about the boat, the Skipper and what will be asked of you. Your offer to crew might be declined or accepted, so anRSVP to sail isn't aguaranteed seat. It's not a ticket-to-ride, or a boarding-pass to awine-cooler harbor cruise. Crew also should not expect to invite their own Guestsunless Skipper initiates the offer to do so.
We have active members in coastal Maine, NH,MA, Rhode Is, and the lakes regions of NH & VT. Our varied calendar and geographically distributed events let you meet fellow enthusiasts, and expand your network, year-round. You're encouraged to add events to the calendar, and help expand the network in your own area. Take the lead, ask for some support, post the activities you will enjoy & want to share.
