Racing around San Diego

Forgive me if this has been covered before, or if this is the wrong place for it. I'm new and haven't quite figured out all the different sub forums here.

When I was a kid I did a lot of racing in Opti's, Sunfish, and 420s and when I got into my teens I used to crew on J24s during the summer on Cape Cod. I've been getting back into sailing here in San Diego and would love to get back into racing. I really enjoyed the J24s and would love to find a fleet of similar boats to crew on if there isn't a J fleet around here. I've seen one J24 running around mission bay, but was never close enough to talk to them.

Anyone have some suggestions?

Thanks!
Dallas Ashley

Have you tried contacting the San Diego Yacht Club, they're pretty active in J's, also you might get a crew spot in their current racing season ( larger boats ) which is the grandfather of the beer can races

Actually, they're based in SD. But to the point for the OP, yes, the sailing anarchy crewing forum would be a good place to start.

If you are Military, then you can go to the Naval Sailing Club out on the Strand just south of the Coronado Navy base.

Have you contacted The Mission Bay Yacht Club? They are just north of the San Diego Bay. Consider joining a group and crew as needed. A small association fee, out on the water.
