Somewhere between 3-6 times a year someone comes on SailNet hoping to crowd source their sailing adventure. I exchanged email and followed a couple of these folks in this process out of curiosity. Frankly they were not successful at raising anything other than from family and close friends and even then it was not enough to do much good. At best, if you are a really good sailor, you might be able to get a crew spot on a cruising boat or you might be able to sign onto some racing program at the lowest level and work your way up.
Otherwise, Plan 'B'-get a piece of cardboard and make sign that reads, "Aspiring yachtsman looking for help buying foulies" and stand in an intersection with a cup and let us know how you made out.
