Need Racing Crew - Seattle Area/Lake Washington

I''m looking for crew for PHRF racing on my Ericson 32-2 in Lake Washington/Puget Sound. I''ve been out of racing for about 15 years and am anxious to get going again. It''s more important to have reliable crew who will show up for each race; I will teach you how to sail/race if you don''t have experience, but do have desire and committment. Read more about me and my boat at http://www.randd.net/RANDDWeb/Rick/Sailboats/Ericson%2032 or see my Member page: RickAn.

Note, I''m starting easy. Once I''ve got a good crew together and we start working well, I''ll start getting agressive with the racing; until then, it''s easy going and fun. I expect it to take two years to get to this point, though. I''ve trophied in many races in the past and hope to do it again.

Reliable/committed crew will also get to race my boat sometimes in their own races (and I''ll crew for them if they want me) and take it cruising (with or without me). I''m not much of a cruiser though; I get pretty bored if we don''t have a mark to round or another boat to beat :-)

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey RickAn,

If only I lived in Washington, or the USA for that matter, I would jump at the chance to compete along side you. I've only been sailing for 2 years now, but man, do I love it.
Anyways good luck with finding a dedicated crew and good luck!

Dougie

Rick, you're too far South for me but I have a French Canadian with Laser experience that's looking to crew so I'll ask him.

Still lookin?

Heya Rick,
I'm from newport RI and grew up sailing mainly small boats up to j boats. The last three summers I've been crewing 12 meters and racing them in a lot of friendly and competitive regattas. Any chance you're still lookin for crew? give me a shout

Hi Rick,

I live in Seattle and am interested in crewing. I grew up sailing, have done both blue water and racing crewing although not in the last several years.

Do you still need crew?

Thumbs up I'm game

I'm in the Seattle area and always have time for sailing, on my boat or Any boat. I raced many years ago, but haven't raced the current boat yet, and would like to back into it as you would.

Hey Guys—

Rick hasn't posted since 2002 and is likely not looking for crew anytime soon...Also, recommend you read the POST in my signature to help you get more out of your time on sailnet.

75R20—

Highly recommend you don't post your e-mail in machine readable form unless you like SPAM.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
