CrewFinder is for people actively seeking sailing connections. Skippers find Crew, and can network with fellow Skippers. Crew find sailing opportunities and beginners can meet mentors.
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 sailing are welcome, when authentically looking to engage in the sport, contribute and actively learn.
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,a boarding-pass to awine-cooler harbor cruise,or an opening to invite your own Guests for a boat-ride(unless the Skipper states otherwise).
We have active members in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Up-State New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Long Island Sound. Our varied calendar and geographically distributed events let you meet fellow enthusiasts, and expand your crewing network, year-round. You're encouraged to add to the events calendar, and to grow the network in your area, by posting the activities you want to share.
