Take part in Swiftsure without a yacht...
The Swiftsure Crew Bank allows sailors to post their information for skippers who are looking for extra crew. If you are interested in taking part in Swiftsure but don't have a boat, this is a good way to find a ride.
The following sailors are available as crew during Swiftsure 2023.
||Looking for crew position racing or delivery
I have completed ASA 101, 103, 104, 105 and soon 107. Willing to do any job, any position.
I have logged over 50 days sails in the last 18 months in the Puget Sound area, and spent 10 days/ 800 nm offshore sailing this summer from Cascais, Portugal to Palma, Spain. I own my own Caliber 28 Sailboat and am familiar and capable with minor maintenance needs. I have been told I have “great situational awareness” and that I am a “hard working and analytic sailor”.
I am easy going, a fast learner can take direction, calm under pressure and can get along with almost anyone! I have recently been accepted as crew on the Clipper Round the World Race 24/25 and want more offshore experience before I commit to a leg. I would enjoy meeting you and seeing if I would be a good crew match for you.
I have been a part of 3 local Puget Sound day races, most recently as Trimmer.
I know a little about sail repair and am confident in the gally.
Recently completed Mahina Offshore Cruising Workshop.
||I am looking for anyone who needs crew returning their boat back to Oregon/Portland after the race. I have about 20 years of sailing experience with 10,000 miles of offshore sailing with most of my sailing on the east coast with deliveries from Ft Lauderdale to Maryland and back, a couple Antigua to Grenada trips and one from Ft. Lauderdale to Bermuda, with about half dozen trips to the Bahamas..I can provide references.
