SDSA Crew List Service

As part of its mission, the SDSA unites experienced ocean sailors who volunteer their time to participate in our events with cruisers looking to broaden their sailing horizons…safely. The Crew List Service is an important way in which we make that connection happen. It is for both captains looking for crew and crew searching for a boat. We do our best to offer guidance to both captains and crew to try to help both parties meet their needs.

Generally, captains cover on-board expenses for crew during a rally and expect crew to cover their own transportation fees to and from the event. However, Captain and crew may agree to other financial arrangements as a part of their discussions.

The Crew List Service is available to anyone interested in crewing and to captains that have registered and been accepted in an SDSA Rally.

Any questions? Please contact our Crew Coordinator.
