Re: Curiosity About These "Crew Wanted" Posts

This is a good discussion, thanks. A few times a week someone with little to no experience pops into the chat looking for crew positions so we direct him/her to post in the forum but I always think "Right. Good luck with that."

I have been offered crew positions based on my being active in Sailnet and meeting the captain (for unrelated reasons) before the positions were offered. I also may crew on the ARC Europe Rally next year but that's with someone I know from the Coast Guard. But, in both cases, I am a known entity. I was curious how much of a chance Joe/Josephina Doe off the street so to speak has in finding a berth on a boat.

The other semi-trend i see are people wanting to crew one way from the US to Europe as a means of inexpensive passage. Creative I suppose.
