Re: Curiosity About These "Crew Wanted" Posts
Is "offshore" the overriding criteria here, or is any kind of sailing ok?
I've taken several Sailnet newbs sailing to help decide if sailing is something they want to pursue. Some of them pick it up quickly, some don't. I'm trying to contribute, and to "grow the sport".
I currently have a Sailnetter as part of my regular racing crew. He is newish, but not totally green to sailing, and he's doing an awesome job. I won't "out" him though. I'll leave it to him to speak up if he wants to.
I've been sailing with plenty of people from Sailnet. Most of those sails, be they day sails, beer can racing, or distance racing have been successful. I have no horror stories to tell you.
Hope that helps.
