ODC Crew Pool information and sign-up
The search by skippers who race for committed crew people is a never-ending one. Crewing opportunities come in all sizes & shapes. The goal here is to help those interested in crewing connect with ODC skippers who are looking for crew.
A few points:
There is no membership cost for crewing but, some do join ODC. For crew, it is not a requirement.
Decide if you want to be 'occasional' or 'regular' crew. When you indicate regular crew it simply means that you think you can generally, be available on 'most' of the season's race dates. Skippers understand that even 'regular' crew may not be available 100% of the time. If you're new to racing, being regular crew is the fast track for 'getting good'. Most skippers don't mind teaching someone new, as long as they can count on them to show up regularly.
If your schedule stays pretty busy, or you're gone for extended periods during the non-winter months, or your work schedule is such that you can't be a regular crew for someone, you may decide that you just want to be crew occasionally. In other words, you just wish to be a 'sub'. If you've got some experience...and know your way around a sailboat... being a 'sub' may be for you.
The form below will ask you to describe your experience and preferences. Be honest. If you've been involved in racing but are up in years, you may not enjoy the athleticism it takes to crew on a sportboat. About the only requirement for most PHRF boats is that you be reasonably fit and have average or better agility.
Fill out as many details as you can and keep your database up-to-date. Once you find a suitable boat, change your status to “NOT CURRENTLY LOOKING”. You can always come back and re-activate your status later, in case you need to find another boat.
Our goal is to have a user-friendly and up-to-date database of sailors who are looking for a sailboat to race on in and around our area... so please help us with that.
