Boston Harbor/Marblehead sailing

I joined the Boston Harbor Sailing club, which allows me to take their boats out sailing. They have boats in Boston Harbor and Marblehead. I signed up to sail their Cal 33's and I will actually be sailing into October. I am self-employed and am able to sneak away and sail during the week. Since the end of summer its been harder to find a crew. I am not a real experienced sailor, but I am comfortable with day sails in the these harbors. So if anyone might be able to sail mid-week, pm your emails and I will contact you about some day sailing.

Cheap Sunglasses

is the name of the Cal 33 owned by the BHSC. I was moored next to her last year and this year I am about 7 boats away. I'd love to crew but unlike you, I work for the man, so I can't go during the week. If you need help on the weekends, let me know.

My boat is the same size.

I have also sailed with the BHSC.

Minor point, but Cheap Sunglasses is ONE of three CAL33's The other two are Starlett O"Harra, and Neo. If you joined at the Gold Plus Level you also have access to Kaching Kaching (pictured above), a Pearson 34.

Regarding the search for crew in, and around Boston; for an additional $70, you could also join the Pelagic Sailing Club. "Dedicated to bringing together competent skippers and competent crew for their mutual sailing benefit." You can learn more at Pelagic Sailing Club
