Winter Racing in Boston Area

Looking to do some winter racing as a crew member. Have the correct clothing, but need a boat to race on because my boat is slumbering on the hard. Anyone know of anyone on or groups that need crew? I will contact the BYC and Boston Sailing Center, but this may be difficult as I am not a member and do not particularly want to join just to be a crew member until March/April.

Thanks.

You can probably crew without being a member... at least at the BSC. They're generally looking for frostbiting crew IIRC, and you could crew as a guest.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

check also with Marblehead Frostbite Sailing club or with the Wintrop frostbiters. I don't know the contact info, but typically the Mhead group sails from the Eastern Yacht club on the Neck. I used to sail in this club decades ago when it was Interclubs. Now I think it's Sonars, which are dryer to crew on.
