Did you get a boat?
Are you living in the PS area?
Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle (CYC-Seattle) is about racing (mostly).
Lots of races. Lk WA., and PS. CYC runs most serious races in the area.Yes, some of these boats need crew and will train/teach you. In return most are looking for someone that wants to learn, win, race hard, and show up. They have Wed. night races (Keelboats Spring-fall), and weekend regattas. Wednesday night races are casual (for serious racers).
Corinthian Yacht Club
CYC runs races at Leschi and Shilshole.
Many of the boats/crews have raced a while and race to win.
They have a place to post crew available/wanted at the club house (Floating building, N. end of Shilshole marina). Maybe there is a crew list on line? Not sure.
on Lake WA is Sail Sand Point. I believe they have a program for adults to learn dinghy racing. All Dinghy stuff (I think). I think it's run by "Seattle Parks Dept"
The Sloop Tavern Y.C. runs PHRF races geared toward cruisers. I believe they run some "rookie races."
Other more casual races are run by varied outfits.
Magazine "48 North" is a good source for events. I believe it is available online. Maybe - 48degreesnorth.com ?
These contacts will have members that can help you get going.
There are lots of opportunities for you to get started racing around Seattle.
If you show interest, I may be able to hook you up with a ride.
