Crewing Opportunities 2018

Like to Crew in a Snipe?

There are a few helms wanting a crew for the 2018 season.

Successful Helm and crew combinations depend upon availability, ability,  personality and is especially daunting if you are new to the club and don’t know who would be good to consider. Read on……..

What does a Helm look for in a potential crew: race winner, someone to teach how to helm or crew, to encourage into the sport, a specific weight or ability, just be a regular down at the club, travel to occasional events with no cost or shared cost, just a chatty person who likes to get out on the water, the occasional sail on specific days or a regular slot through most of the year? I may have missed out a variable or two.

What does a Crew look for: The mirror of the above.

It can be tricky to find a helm to sail with, there is always the worry that there is discomfort in asking in case they don’t know how to say “yes please” or “no”, their crew may be upset too !

As Snipe Captain I am pretty familiar with those who are looking for a crew now and for next season, so by getting in touch with me we can discuss what you want and who would be a good fit for you.

If you would rather crew in a GP or RS200 then get in touch with the class captain if those fleet, you will find them keen to help.
