Need crew for Tuesday Night Race

On tuesday nights (yes, not weds night), there are 6 - 10 or so Catalina 30s, plus a few others, that race out of Santa Cruz. I am short of crew (well, I actually have *no* crew this tuesday), so I thought I'd see if anyone wanted to crew with me. I am not very well geared for racing in this crew and I'm just learning tactics, etc, though I've been a bluewater sailor (on the east coast) most of my life. What I'm getting at is that if the wind isn't going 6+ knots I often don't even race, I just sail around the bay. But with more wind I'll be in the mix.

So long story short: I need a few crew, preferable people with at least some experience or desire to learn and potentially crew more in the future. It will very likely be a short race, we will have fun, but don't expect to be qualifying for AC anytime soon ;)

More details to anyone who wants to contact me.

    Thanks everyone for your interest and for joining me! We had a great time and I'm looking forward to getting a few more folks out this weekend and next tuesday.

    I'm going to set up two more meetup and again I'll try to pick a mix of experienced and lesser experienced people as possible, so apologies if it looks like I'm not picking you in order. But I promise I will try to get everyone sooner or later :)

    This Tuesday will not work, but please keep me on the list. I am determined to get in one more sail before the weather turns.

    Hi All,
    Thanks for the interest in joining me tuesday night at 5:00 on Q dock in the south harbor! I am on the "Free Spirit" in slot Q15, we generally set sail by 5:!5 or 5:30 at the lastest as it's getting darker earlier now :) As you walk down the dock, you'll probably see two boats with activity going on, I'm on the left side.

    I have extra gloves, lifejackets, etc, but don't really have extra windbreakers, etc. You know the drill.

    I picked the firs 3 (ish) RSVP based on sailing experience because I'm hoping that once this crew gets a sail with my boat, I can start bringing one or two of the experienced people along with others with less experience on future sails. I sail recreationally on the weekends also, and will post that as soon as I get all that together :)

    Tuesday nights are good for me, especially on a Catilina 30. If you still need crew I am interested.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
