    Crew memberships required for racing at yacht club?

    Crew should mean racing only. No racing then piss off you are not welcome here. Upgrade to social membership if propping up the club bar is your thing. I go to race, buy the owner a beer after and go home. I buy everyone several dinners over the season and always turn up to work on the boat whatever needs doing. Still willing to pay a VOLUNTARY crew membership to cover toilets, showers and cleaners.

    Seriously!? Free beer and no takers? Perhaps you might indicate what club you are affiliated with so that whatever afflicts your members might be avoided.

    That increase is not even a case of beer. Of those long term members do you still have the shouter with the fake Rolex there who likes to smoke on the deck/balcony? I will and have in the past happily paid a crew membership of up to CDN $ 100 / year. But only on a VOLUNTARY basis. There will always be free riders but who cares as long as people are made to feel welcome on the boats and in the bar then participation in sailing at least holds. I don't want to be an associate or social member. I go there to crew. If I use the facilities and get the code to the door I don't expect to get it for nothing. How can this possibly be enforced? It is a public access marina and you don't even own your clubhouse and IIRC it has public access mandated in its lease. So now people will drink cheaper beer on their boats and the clubhouse bar and food continue to die.

    Reach legs in PHRF

    Can't help but think re-phrasing that for the international audience might help.

    Nobody Wants To Take Up Sailing

    There is a cast of thousands I have talked about sailing with over the years. Sailing is an obsession, an addiction, the hook is set deep and fast, thousands romanticize sailing, one of them will join us. They either get it or they don't. It is cheaper now than it has ever been, walk down the dock, join a crew, commit, show up, just not for most people sadly. Going the wrong way slowly has limited appeal apparently.

    Hey- fam, I was not inclined to respond to you but here goes: I thought your post inane, banal, pointless, etc., so I responded as my mood took me and is my prerogative. If a post entertains/informs me or someone uses profanity in a new and unusual way that might elicit a positive response. I have broken no rules. This is sailing ANARCHY. Perhaps you should not be such a snowflake, untwist your panties, HTFU, grow a pair, and then go sailing.

    Anarchy is Hate Speech

    For all the Pissin' an' moanin on this thread, I forgot the humourous, sarcastic fonts. Wish some ed/mod could move it to PA so it disappears up its own backside. Not even a single like either!
