Hi all,

Probably breaking all kinds of etiquette making this be my first post, but I am looking for some advice and you all seem like a nice lot.

What i'm looking for: I'm taking a break from work and would like to sail (crew) for a week or two, ideally helping someone who could use an extra hand.

My experience: I've been sailing for a few years. My recent experience has been 2 one-week charters in the BVI where i was skipper. I've also done an almost one-week charter in San Diego. The boats have ranged in length from 30 to 44'. I've been building my resume for a while and have taken ASA 101, 103, and 104 classes, and before that, done a lot of day trips while studying at MIT. You'll find me competent crew and pleasant company.

How you can help: I have a few questions:
  • What is the best way to connect with people looking for crew (in addition to this forum)?
  • I'd love to do this at low cost / no cost, but i'm willing to pay a little something in addition to my share of fuel/food/etc. - what would be appropriate?
  • Do you know of anyone needing crew in August? I'm willing to travel to meet the boat.

Thanks for your help!
-Jerry

Recently there have been quite a few "looking for crew" posts in this forum. More than normal (I think). You should look through them and you might find something that suits you. Also, findacrew.com is pretty popular.
