Re: Signing up for races

Yeah it's hard to say how much response you will get.

I second the old fashioned way! Go down to the docks, and ask around. Don't expect to get onto one of the sexy race boats right away, although that could happen if they need extra rail meat! You are better off targeting the racer cruisers. Some clubs have a crew circle of some kind you can stand in and people will pick you up, but it doesn't hurt to stroll around the docks too. Look for boats that only have one or two guys rigging up!

Good luck!
