Saturday Sail aboard a Catalina 38 - Sept 29
Let's sail! I'm looking for a crew of 4-6 sailors to come hoist sails and trim jibs out of Marina del Rey. We'll sail for about 2-3 hours (I'm flexible in this regard; the sooner everyone gets here the sooner we can shove off ). I'll bring a bottle of wine (feel free to bring any favorites) and please bring some finger foods to share (Some suggestions: cheese, crackers, fruit, veggies, hummus, chips/salsa, sandwiches, wings or a dessert are some good pairings). Experience/Skill level: All levels of experience welcome, so long as you show up on time and are ready to learn and do crew work. Everyone will be expected to do some lite crew work... it'll be a fun albeit lite workout. Physical Requirements: You need to be able to get on/off the boat in the event of an emergency. This includes having the agility to step up/down about 24-inches between the boat and dock. Must have the agility to move around the cockpit and the foredeck. Must be able to stand and pull on jib/main sheets under pressure. What to bring (besides food): No shoes... no cruise. Please wear flat, closed-toe shoes that are white-soled and won't leave a scuff. Remember to bring gloves, a jacket, water bottle and sunblock. Terms/Expenses: It costs $800/month to keep the boat slipped and maintained, plus the wepay charges for this special trip. I would appreciate it if you'd chip in $35/each to help offset expenses related to this sail - paying in advance with a 48-hour cancellation policy helps mitigate any unreliable RSVPs. Contribution is not a condition of carriage on the vessel - private message me if you have trouble RSVP'ing online. Getting here/Parking: Plan ahead, you need to be here 1/2 hour before departure and traffic is pretty gnarly in this end of town, so leave 15-minutes earlier than you think you should. My slip is on the south side of the street but the best place to park is on the north side of the street across from the Chart House. Parking on either side of the Capri apartments is free but it's quite a walk to the gate; there are signs that say permit only but I've never seen it enforced. If you'd rather be safe than sorry, there's paid parking near the Cheesecake Factory - give yourself at least 5-hours of paid parking. It'll be a short walk along the south side of the docks until you arrive at gate C600. Guests: you may invite your friends to RSVP through the meetup site - all crew must sign up through the meetup or or sign a release of liability. Release of liability: By reserving your attendance for this event, you (Releasor) hereby forever waive, release and discharge the host (Releasee) from any and all claims, demands, damages, judgments, executions, rights of action or causes of action, present or future, whether the same be known, anticipated or unanticipated, which a Releasor may have, or claim to have, against any Released Party resulting from death, personal injury, property damage or other loss Releasor may sustain as a result of participating in the event or other activities related thereto. Releasors hereby acknowledge that serious accidents occasionally occur during sailing activities and that mortal or serious personal injuries and/or property damage or other loss may result from participation in the event. Releasors knowingly assume all risks of participation in the event, including all risk of personal injury and loss of or damage to the Releasors or their property, including further injury sustained as the result of the efforts of third parties who come to the aid of Releasor(s) if injured as a result of participation in the event, and release all other persons and entities mentioned above who might otherwise be liable to Releasors. Releasors agree to abide by all rules of the Host in connection with participation in the event and understand that the failure to observe and obey such rules may result in instant revocation of Releasor’s(s’) right to participate in the event.

    What we're about

    From Santa Barbara to San Diego, this is a group dedicated to the art of sailing. We will have gatherings both on and off the water, races, cruises and dinners. Members are encouraged to suggest events and venues and arrange fun low cost sailing related activities that members can join. Members will join forces to plan sailing events, or just get together and swap stories of past adventures. Whatever your thing, we'll try to have it.

    Crew-mates: Please be courteous and respectful of your skippers by showing up ON TIME for an event. There is typically a waitlist for crewmates, so please RSVP quickly. You will be removed from the group after 2-NoShows, if you are unable to show up for a sail, please update/cancel your RSVP the night before so that the next person on the waiting list can be notified. Every skipper has different rules aboard his/her boat, so please read the event details and conduct yourself accordingly. Please also respect any specifics about the posted event - some adventures may be open to inexperienced sailors while some may be reserved for more seasoned pros.

    Skippers: It's free to post meetup events. Just let me (the organizer) know you are interested in posting a sail aboard your vessel and I'll make you an event organizer. Please abstain from ‘TBD’ events, keep it specific with dates/times for a planned sail. While it's okay to split the expenses related to making a sail available to members, please don't use this site to support your own chartering business as that is not the intent.

    I hope that this group can be a fun approach to boating and socializing with others of the same interest in sailing!
