Re: How do u find good crew for a race?
newbie, I'd suggest there's no shortcut.
Consider, there are only so many good crew to go around, and they've already earned seats on boats. What's left are the folks with no obiligations, yet. So they'll also be newbs. Or, many will be unreliable and show up or not depending on the phase of the moon.
So you ask around, interview around, and start building a crew. Which will take time. No shortcuts to that.
