when i was living in chicago i found a friend of a friend who had a boat and did the beer can races out of belmont harbour. they were in classes, so while he was fairly recreational it got me some face time in front of the more experienced crews, then socialize at the bar after... after a while people get to know you...

You misunderstand, people do not take out ads they do crew listings or boat listings. The sailing magazine hosts a rather nice crew listing service. Check it out
SpinSheet - Crew Listings

Basically you can search for a boat or crew based on experience, boat size, ect. It is useful but not as useful as just simply getting to know sailors that race.

Jeff_H has a spectacular aura about Jeff_H has a spectacular aura about Jeff_H has a spectacular aura about
SpinSheet has a crew finder party every year, and used to, and I assume still has a 'crew exchange' on their website, where boats that need crew, and crew who need boats can get together.

Yeah - but do you really want to be the poor schlubs with no pfds out on the "crewtapult"? Dog, what would you tell these fellows regarding safety?



PS - Is this the poor man's canting keel?

It sounds like they're having a kick off the season crew party. From their site:

The SpinSheet Crew Listing Parties will take place April 18 at the Annapolis Maritime Museum from 4 - 6 p.m. and April 3 at Marker 20 in Hampton. Stay tuned for details.

Just sounds like you're a little early is all.

Lot's of good advice on the thread, particularly pursuing the weekday evening beer can races as a way to find rides. This works particularly well if it's blowing 15+... everyone wants rail meat. Start from there and work your way up.

I'm not a dog, but I have a nice one! Safety? I'd tell these folks absolutely nothing. They're big boys and girls that are sailing very old boats that have done it this was long before we were born. I think they can take care of themselves. I'd happily sit out there with them w/o a pfd. The water's warm as is the weather.

Hey, I actually think it looks fun. Well as fun as sitting on a plank of wood can be.

I'd just like to see the hands up "roller coaster" style.
