Crew Service
Captains Seeking Crew

The Crew Service is a Member Benefit for use by member Captains at any time. Captains may utilize this service for any sailing purpose; a rally passage, non-rally passage or individual cruising.  Use this service to find crew to assist with duties such as standing watch, to mentor fellow sailors, to find a cruising buddy or to find an experienced leader.

All active postings now reside within the "Forum" section of the website.  Here, Captains may use the Crew Service in one of two ways:

  • Review the posts found in the "Crew Available" Forum, then respond directly to prospects using their email address.


  • Post your needs to the "Captains Needing Crew." Prospects will respond directly to you, not to the forum .  REMEMBER TO INCLUDE YOUR  CONTACT INFORMATION IN YOUR POST.
