Real Photo and Name Policy

Tampa Bay Sailing introduces Skippers (with boats) to Captains (with certifications), Crew (with training) and Sailors (with interest). One of the many requirements of membership in this FREE group is an identifying photo and name in your profile. It is important that we know actual identities of members.

These are real people, with real boats, and real accident and liability potential. See Membership Rules and Disclaimer of Liability on our Pages ( tab.

This policy was specifically requested by the Skippers, so they know exactly who is actually coming aboard their boats. They are responsible for their boat and passenger's safety, so we have to be responsible too.

One of the requirements of membership in the group is that you have an identifying photo in your profile. The photo does not need to be your main photo, but must be in the profile so Organizers and other members can click and see who you are.

Also, all members need to use part of their actual name, at least their first name or a normal nickname, based on their identity, such as "Calamity Jane," as part of their Meetup ID for the group. "Crazy Colin" is okay. "Crazy One" is not.

As Organizer, I will ask for your real name if any Skipper asks me for it. (Women should NOT post first and last names.) These are real people with beautiful boats. It is important that we know actual identities of members. Skippers may ask for and require IDs if they choose.

Sometimes we charter (hire) a boat. Charters may ask for and require deposits and IDs.
