Lots of info here. If you have questions, do message me directly! • What we'll do We're heading back to Cuba! Legally! We have partnered with an agency that is in compliance with OFAC regulations. We've gotten to know the ropes of navigating both on land and by sea. This place is so special, we want to share it with you. The pristine beauty and the lovely people of the Southern Cuba islands, are not to be missed. If Cuba has been on your bucket list, now is the time. NOT FAKE NEWS - the Cubans welcome Americans. You do not have to have sailing experience to join this flotilla. We've secured three yachts for this sail. I will be captaining the largest in the fleet a 45' catamaran. This is a rough itinerary and is subject to updates and changes. Discover the unknown CUBA November 8-20, 2018 Cuba is a hidden gem. The architecture, the infrastructure, the culture, and of course, the cars - all feel like a stroll up memory lane. When touring Cuba one can really appreciate the moment of being able to take a peak into a time capsule. Sailors NYC is offering a rare (and maybe even once in a life time) opportunity to explore Cuba before it changes forever. Our trip includes land and sea, architecture and nature, people and culture.

What we're about

CrewFinder is for people who want to actively pursue sailing connections. Skippers find Crew and can network with fellow Skippers. Crew will find a variety of styles and types of sailing. Beginners can meet mentors. Experienced sailors, who are currently boatless, will find the Skippers who are seeking their seasoned skills too.

The fundamental goal here is to increase your hours of sailing & offer a place to share information, contribute knowledge, grow skills, broaden on-water experience, and meet the sailing buddies you will most enjoy, respect, and find dependable. This starts with developing an informative Profile that tells others who you are, what you bring and hope to gain here.

To generate more sailing for all members, we start by catering to Skippers. Skippers define the terms of their sailing day and the type of Crew they seek. We are not a sailing school, but many Skippers enjoy mentoring and newbies curious to explore sailing are welcome. We ask that you be here to actively engage in the sport, want to contribute and have an authentic interest in sailing.

If you RSVP to sail, you're offering to help operate a sailboat. Before you offer, learn about the boat, the Skipper and what will be asked of you. Your offer to crew can be declined or accepted. An RSVP to sail isn't a guaranteed seat, a ticket-to-ride, or a boarding-pass for a free harbor cruise. And unlike many other types of MeetUp event postings, a sailing RSVP is not an offer for crewing respondents to invite their own added Guests.

We have active members in coastal Maine, NH, MA, Rhode Island, & the lakes regions of New Hampshire and Vermont. 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 that will help grow the network in your specific area too. Take the lead, ask for some posting tips, then invite others the sailing activities you enjoy & want to share.

Is this the place to pursue Your sailing interests? Join & find-out. Experiment with new places to sail, different types of boats, and different styles of sailing. Hear about the area's most affordable classes, or find informal on-water learning opportunities. Meet fellow enthusiasts & share good times under sail.Skippers: Never again leave your boat unsailed for lack of Crew! Post here, build your roster, and fill your days with all the sailing you wish.
