Is Crewing Safe?

Hi 808,

It may be worth speaking with your local offshore sailing club - they will be able to put you in touch with some cruisers looking for crew and advise you of any dangers... As to the question "is it safe" - you should let your judge of character tell you that. You would hope that any person leaving to go offshore would be Cat 1 - the surveyor looks for strength of vessel and owner alike before issuing the certificate.

Have fun - and don''t let the salty sea dogs scare you!
