The people I found were absolutely first class. They gave me plenty of notice if they couldn't make a race, never complained, didn't bring any drama onboard, and we all had fun. Lapworth here on Sailnet was one of them.
Glad you had a great experience. Where (how) did you find the crew? Maybe it's a regional thing. As a native San Franciscan, I can attest that many Californians can be very egocentric. Come to think of it, most of the really good crew list experiences I've had, have been crew from elsewhere. Hmmmm
Anyway - I don't want to be "negative or weired". UP WITH PEOPLE
