Re: Two 100% newbies available for Chicagoland Daysailing

It is easier to look for crewing position as one person compared to two of you. I personally know many captains/owners do not allow couple to come board. They just don't want to take a chance to ruin their perfect day of sailing.

Therefore, if your objective is to learn to sail, be flexible. You will get more offers.

OF course, this is YMMV. Good luck

Fine Print:
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
