Re: How do u find good crew for a race?

Thx...I have a great guy that I bought teh boat from...he just is unavailable that weekend. So I am looking for a few guys. Got one from work, and would like a guy thats "seasoned" if possible since it would be some night racing. Also would be in the Cruz No Spin class so I dont expect there to be too much work involved.

Re: How do u find good crew for a race?

Yeah I think hitting up the sailing schools would be a great idea. The fact is, older boats like yours don't have the same appeal to experienced racers, so if you don't have experienced buddies to come out with you you have to train a new crew. It would be good to get at least one experienced "crew boss".
