I wont bring the beer or be hopsing
I have a few years of experience (3 summers) working the foredeck of an Evelyn 32 out of Waukegan Yatch Club (IL). I also have experience sailing on a J130 out of the Chicago Corinthian Yatch Club. The majority of the races were beer can race series and the Waukegan to Chicgao Race.
I moved to Cleveland in Feb 2020, I'm looking to get back out on the water so I'm looking for a boat to crew.
My wife and I are both in our 50's and own a 32' C&C down in Louisiana on Lake Ponchatrain.
I've sailed on a previous boat we owned here in Ohio. Sailed to Kelley's Island and back a few times and around the Cleveland lake front mostly.
we are mostly looking to gain experience with a crew that enjoys teaching others the joy of sailing.
We are both interested in crewing for someone. We are NOT expert sailors by any means.
we don't even have to learn/crew on the same boat.
'if anyone is interested please let us know.

I am looking to gain experience sailing- I have no physical experience, just what I have read. Really looking to help as much as I can and learn as much as I can from experienced sailors!
I have taught sailing classes on sunfish boats for three years, and have limited experience sailing my family's 16' hobie cat. I was on the club sailing team for my last semester of college and skippered FJ boats, but didn't get a chance to race. I have basic sailing knowledge but would love to get out on the water, learn, and help out!
I have mostly sailed hobie cats and dinghies. Looking forward to learn more.
I did sailing camp as a kid and helped out on a family sailboat growing up, but I am mostly a novice. I am eager to learn, an attentive listener, and typically a quick study. I'll bring a cheerful attitude and sense of humor to the learning process.
I've been sailing a little over 8 years. Learned the basics from books and an online sailing course. Taught myself in a McGregor venture 17 . Retractable keel. 4 seasons sailing it. Last 4 years I've had a Catalina Capri 18 , fixed wing keel . I have a lot of hours sailing , nearly every weekend or day off in the summers for 8 yrs. Been caught in some rough weather. First 4yrs I went out (inside the break wall ) in every storm I could in an attempt to gain skill faster . I say the first 4 yrs because the McGregor is said to " unsinkable " . Purchasing a c&c redline 33 next mo . I love sailing. It's going to be a big part of my future. I would love the opportunity to learn more with veteran sailors. Racing sailboats sounds very exciting. I imagine the experience gained is unmeasurable. Willing to help crew on any SV.
I'm an experienced International and Flying Scot sailor but it has been a decade since I've raced regularly. I am a degreed Naval Architect and Marine Engineer but left the field to focus on entrepreneursial activities. Interested in learning to sail larger boats on Lake Erie. Would love to crew in any capacity.
6 years teaching small boat sailing summer camps. US Sailing level 1 certified. Some regatta experience in TN.
