    2019 Transpac

    Hey all. Looking to do the 2019 transpac... Already posted on the transpac crew bank but figured I'd stick as many feelers out as I can. Any leads on other forums or people to bother? 20 year old Canadian male, plently of inshore racing experience. Went offshore for my first time last year taking TP52 "Kinetic V" back to Vancouver from the 2017 transpac. I work full time as a first mate on charter boats, and do a little bit of work for a rigging company on the side so have a fair amount of boat knowledge and maintenance/fixing skills. Erik

    Crew (August 2018)

    I have my competent crew and day skipper certification, and I will be completing navigation and VHF courses this August. My hope is to get my RYA offshore certification within the next year, however I lack practical experience and nm. I would like to crew for an experienced skipper in the Vancouver, BC area throughout the month of August. I feel incredibly comfortable on a vessel, I grew up sailing around the world with my family, and I am a quick learner. I am looking for an opportunity to build my confidence as crew and skipper, as well as racking up some nm in order to complete my coastal skipper certification in the spring.
  3. Bottom line up front: I setup my boat crew management site online using Wordpress. The site is up and running and I want to know if there is interest in re-coding this to a free or low cost Wordpress Plugin. If so, I need help from someone with Wordpress plugin experience. Read on this long post to learn more..... I'm resurrecting an old thread about the same topic that has been archived here with a related thread here. In summary - many have tried various online solutions to manage their boat and crew for scheduling. Some of the solutions mentioned include: Shared Spreadsheet including Google Docs Spreadsheet Google Calendar Sail Team by Compete-At (discontinued) TTSail (was a free site that is now discontinued) - a google sheet implementation Crew Control - (had some bad press in this post) Facebook - (e.g. setup a closed group) (free and paid subscriptions to get most features needed) I started with a spreadsheet that was mailed around in 2004 to the crew members, then in 2008 discovered TTSail that offered most everything I wanted, including a public website. TTSail was discontinued in 2014 without any notice. I transitioned to Teamsnap because it had most of the features I wanted (including a public side of the site). In order to get the features I wanted, I paid an $80 per year subscription. In late 2016, Teamsnap started having problems site wide with script kiddies inserting malware in comment posts allowed on a team's page. They responded by removing the post comments feature. This sucked becuase it was where we would post after race comments to share with the crew. A few months later, Teamsnap announced that they would only allow users logged in to access the site. This was a bummer for those of us who also wanted to have a public site to display results and photos. The final season for me to use Teamsnap was 2017. I distributed a Google sheets link with the 2018 schedule to my crew so they could indicate who is available for what. That brings me to where I am today. Since I maintain some websites for many of the organizations I serve as a volunteer, I have some web development experience. Here are some of the sites I setup (or helped others) based on Wordpress: J/30 Class Association Coasters Harbor Navy YC Narragansett Bay Yachting Association The Twenty Hundred Club J/109 Class Association My disclaimer - I am a retired EE and not a software engineer. I develop spaghetti code, I'm not a real disciplined programmer. I thought it might be time to bite the bullet and cobble together exactly what I needed. I have up and running the J/109 Vento Solare Team Website that I am just rolling out to my crew. The site is based on the following stuff, all which is free: Wordpress Graphene 2 theme All in One Event Calendar Plugin Google Apps Login Google Apps Embedder User Role Editor Tide Graph Since the site is based on Wordpress I can give it the look and feel for most anything I want to include on various pages. It will probably change over time as I play with it and get feedback from the crew, but for now it has the following: A home page with a slider that will display recent or selected posts A page "About the Boat" where there is a little history and boat specs A Calendar page - this is full featured using the free plugin Crew pages (require login to be visible) where crew can set their availability for events, crew can see assignments (e.g. Bill brings beer, Mary brings snacks), Team roster with contact info Skipper Admin page - this is where for each event the skipper (or designee) can assign crew members to positions, indicate what color shirts to wear. and what to bring Weather - a cool interactive weather map from A Links page for many of the related sailing websites I go to A Photos page - this has links to photos people post for events Sidebar widgets with next 5 events, local tide graph and Windalert forecasts for some local sites My next task is to get email notification functioning - both manually initiated and automatic 24 hours before an event. For the techies - all the custom code is placed in a single file (functions.php) in a child theme. Custom styles are in the style.css file in the child theme). I tried to use generic Wordpress functions in PHP so the code would be transportable to other websites without changes (e.g. no hard coded links). Below are the specs I assembled and where I stand on each (red text not completed yet): 1. People Entry section (People Login with an account): Allows people to enter their profile to include: Name, email address, mobile phone number, shirt size, weight, ISAF Number, ISAF Class 2. Schedule Entry Section (Admin Access Only): Allows me to enter regattas with the following information: Regatta Name, Regatta type dropdown (OD, Spin (default), Non-spin), Regatta Start Date, Regatta Stop date (defaults to Start date and multiple dates selected automatically populates the schedule for multiple dates), Dock Time, Location of Boat for Dock Time (defaults to Navy Marina Slip A49), Link for Regatta, Pre-regatta comment Field, Recurring regatta schedule - if checked allows selection of periodicity (daily or weekly) and the number of times repeated. Post regatta designation checkbox (will control public display for the following fields) ,Post Regatta Comment Field, Result (text field), Link to regatta result 3. People Assignment to Regattas (Admin Access Only): Admin screen that allows assignment of people to regattas with the following options: Match a crew member to a position. Defined positions can be from a dropdown to include the following: Bow, Mast, Jib 1, Jib 2, Spinnaker, Pit, Main, Helm, Trim 1, Trim 2, Trim 3, Sewer, Snacktician, Crew 1, Crew 2, Crew 3, Crew 4, Crew 5, Crew 6, Crew 7, Training 1, Training 2, Training 3, Training 4 (this was modified from original spec and can be defined by the Skipper in the admin section) Check box to designate Tactician to any position assigned above if not a dedicated person Text box to indicate person responsible for beverages and snacks- can assign to multiple people and list what to bring Button for admin to email crew with text box to enter subject field (Defaults to Skipper's Message about Regatta Name, Regatta Date) , and another text box for message 4. People Regatta Schedule with Crew Availability (Requires member login): People can login and select a page that provides a regatta matrix for the season (current calendar year) with their desires / assignments Columns are Regatta Date (all dates on repeating are populated in list), Crew position desired, Crew Position Assigned, Beverages & Snacks Assigned Rows are chronological with these fields Date, Regatta Name, Dock Location, Crew Position (selectable dropdown defaults to blank), Crew Position Assigned, Beverages & Snacks Assigned (text) 5. Regatta Calendar Display: Displays the regatta schedule with selectable view as weekly, monthly or agenda type list. Logged in crew members can select the default view and see any view. When a person mouses over a regatta it will pop up the regatta info that includes: Regatta Name, Regatta Type, Regatta Date, Dock Time, Boat Location. If Regatta is clicked on and Post Regatta designation field is not set, a page will open to display: Regatta Name, Regatta Type, Regatta Date, Dock Time, Boat Location, Link for Regatta, Pre-regatta comment Field, Crew members assigned in tabular manner Titles are Name, Tactician, Crew Position, Beverages, Snacks - with a row for each name followed by, X Tactician designation, assigned crew position, X designating beverages, X designating snacks If Post Regatta designation checkbox is checked, mouse over regatta displays Regatta Name, Regatta Type, Result If Regatta is clicked on and Post Regatta designation field is set, a page will open to display: Regatta Name, Regatta Type, Regatta Date, Post Regatta Comment Field, Result (text field), Link to regatta result Crew members assigned in tabular manner Titles are Name, Tactician, Crew Position, Beverages, Snacks - with a row for each name followed by, X Tactician designation, assigned crew position, X designating beverages, X designating snacks So - any thoughts on whether this should be turned into a Wordpress portable plug-in? Business model thoughts Leave "as-is" and make available to whoever wants it - requires detailed web and Wordpress knowledge Transition to a Wordpress Plug-in - make it easy to install, activate, deactivate and uninstall Develop a users manual (crew use, skipper setup, skipper management) - note that there has to be some minimal level of knowledge using Wordpress and the associated free plug-ins offer a hosting service - paid subscriptions to cover costs plus a little more other?
  4. Perfect, may build one myself.
  5. Hi. I'm currently visiting friends and family in Australia and am looking to hitch a ride from Australia to anywhere on my way back to the USA. I'm a Close protection/Maritime security operative usually and am currently on holiday. I'm in no rush, looking to leave some time after Christmas/New Year. I'm willing to contribute towards costs.

  8. Hi all, this is my first post here. I will be visiting San Diego from 7-13 October and I'm looking for opportunities to crew anything and everything, racing or cruising, makes no difference to me. Background: I am a beginner, have completed ASA 101 course work and water work, and completed ASA 103/104 course work only. I live in a literal desert so my chances to get on the water and continue my learning are almost nil. But I'm eager and learn quickly, and I'm in good physical shape for any strenuous tasks that may come about. Let me know if I can help out, at all. Thanks!
  9. New job has a Seattle based office. I'll be spending some time out here. Looking for opportunities to crew in local PHRF or whatever the local scene is and make connections. I've crewed Stars since college, sailed in 3 Star Worlds. Sailed dinghies in college. Good sailor, not much time on larger boats.
  10. The problem I mean this post to address sits motionless in the background of most discussions that take as their subject an activity that exists in law. The problem has to do with how we read the legal document that gives conveyance of the America’s Cup a place among other like trusts. If we read the Deed of Gift, anticipating the things we say about what we read being tested for legal sufficiency, our discussion of country and the Deed of Gift will begin, and likely, end, with two valid observations: Schuyler says nothing of the makeup of a crew and the history of Cup competition shows yacht clubs exploiting this vacuum. We watch yacht clubs advantage themselves on the water by crewing their nation’s boat from the world’s best sailors. The advantage on the water comes too late to save the feature Schuyler attributes to every Cup competition. Schuyler makes the feature visible in the sentence he writes that we might distinguish from any other regatta a competition he means us to perpetuate: "This Cup is donated upon the condition that it shall be preserved as a perpetual challenge Cup for friendly competition between foreign countries." Writing the sentence where Schuyler does in the Deed shows him introducing to us a competition we would not have known from watching the many regattas yacht clubs hold year after year. Watching annual regattas we have no reason to ask the nationalities of the men we see sail the boat that carries a club’s burgee. But let there be something in it for us and what passes for legal sufficiency gives way to a demand that the sailors be our club mates. If a match is to test the mettle of the Golden Gate Yacht Club then by God our sailors damn well better be members of the Club. That only makes sense. Our club cannot glow in victory or shrink humbly in defeat only to discover we counted on any accomplished sailor to show the world what we are made of. Something very like this discovery comes of giving the introductory paragraph a place in our reading of the Deed. Reading the Deed Schuyler writes for us has us turning to the Deed that we might know exactly what he wants from us. Schuyler says all that need be said if we are to follow him forever. By making the sentence the first thing we read that tells of the competition to come of his work, and by structuring this part of the Deed so as to have the sentence stand as a paragraph, Schuyler leaves no possibility of him suggesting that what he writes here calls for further thought on our part if we are to complete his thinking. We reread the sentence out of its order in the Deed. The further thought we give to Schuyler’s words has us reread the sentence, looking there for mention of what we read in Schuyler’s statement of the licensing or other legal requirements that connect a yacht club with a country. We repeat this exercise when we put the introductory sentence in the context of another subject we read elsewhere in the Deed. The context we create has us make of the sentence Schuyler writes a failed counterpart to the work he succeeds in doing, he demanding that a yacht or vessel be constructed in the country of the competing club. We go looking for the connections Schuyler makes of club and country and yacht and country in the sentence he writes for us to read before he says anything of clubs and yachts. Discovering Schuyler tells us a friendly competition between foreign countries leaves a place for pitting sailors from the same country against each other amounts to discovering we fail to discern an implausibility in our restatement of what Schuyler writes entire and unto itself. The sole means to discovering a thing we say to each other is implausible so long as we persist in saying it is to broaden the conversation. Hear yourself in what others say on the subject. Sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup treat the absence of any mention of sailors in the Deed as reason enough to say makeup of the crews is no part of a competition between foreign countries. Their casual demeanor when they tell us what they know betrays a fact we know: Sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup believe what they tell us is unexceptional. They believe what they say fits with how we think country goes in the phrase “… friendly competition between foreign countries.” Broadening the conversation to include us allows for pointing out the phrase takes in much more than the word country. Bringing in competition and taking the time to characterize the sort of competition he means to perpetuate show Schuyler working as well as language allows to say what he wants to accomplish forever. That outcome takes in all of what Schuyler writes. It’s the competition part that gives the lie to thinking a licensed yacht club and sailors from anywhere combine on the water in such a way that a club takes possession of a cup. Taking possession of the America’s Cup calls for a competition that finds us cheering our own as they cross the finish line. We and they are one in a victory for our country’s entrant in the America’s Cup. “The America’s Cup is America’s again!” and then we discover at most one in the crew is American. Or none are. No matter. Do we want to say of this attitude it only makes sense? What does it make sense of? Certainly not winning and losing a competition between foreign countries. We know how that goes. There’s something in it for us. Nothing of what sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup put in place of what we know has us closer to the subject. Indeed the near centuries old discussion that has been the purview of sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup shows them losing sight of the competition altogether. They leave nothing in it for us. The purpose of this post is to leave you comfortable saying we know what we are talking about when we speak for ourselves on winning and losing a friendly competition between our country and that of another. We have no idea what sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup mean to perpetuate when they tell us to watch the world’s best sailors compete in our stead.

    Looking to crew - NYC area

    I've raced mostly shorthanded offshore over in Europe, mainly in Sweden and Norway and to some extent France and Ireland. Also lived in Sydney for a while and sailed a 49er. I've done a few of the classic European offshore races, including Fastnet. Have lived in NYC a couple of years now and looks like I'll be here for another while so would love to get back out on the water for some racing, the closer to NYC the better, but have a car so up for a bit of travel. Happy in most positions, shorthanded or fully crewed. Have experience from 49er, Mini Transat, Class 40, First 34.7 and others. Let me know if you're looking for crew and let's have a chat! Cheers, Nick
  12. Odd post, apologies! A small group of us will be in Barcelona on Sept 3rd. I'd love to get out for a sail, and see the city from the water. Any chance someone would be willing to connect?
  13. I'm looking to join a boat for this year's Maryland Governor's Cup (Annapolis Leg). Life-long dinghy sailor, ASA 101/03/04 certification, and have skippered (bare-boat charter) a 33" monohaul BUT I have no racing experience. Message me if you could use an extra body. I'd consider other races/events as well--so long as reasonable distance from Bethesda, MD Thanks, Jonathan
  14. OK so congrats - you are good enough at sailing that someone has asked you to come along as a "pro" at a regatta. You're the hired help, and you want to do a good job. You might still be a Cat1, but the owner is paying your T&E and showing you a good time, so you want to be helpful. Whether your job is to help up the programs level, or fill a slot on an existing high-performance team, there are some simple rules you need to live by. I'm f___ing amazed at the number of "pros" I see these days that do not seem to get this. Let's help these misguided dimwits by creating a list of the top 10 rules you need to live by. I'll start with 3: 1. Don't be a douchebag. Pretty simple really. But if you're immediate reaction to every observation you make is "mate, you're doing that all wrong", or you are generally getting in everyone else's business giving unsolicited advice, people are going to get tired of you pretty quickly. Even if you're good at your job, consistently ask yourself - AM I BEING A DOUCHEBAG. Self-awareness is critical. 2. Look around. You are on a beautiful yacht, doing something that the 1% of the 1% of the 1% will NEVER GET TO DO. Smile and pinch yourself chief, it's a f___cking yacht race for heaven's sake and it doesn't get any better than this! 3. Remember what business you are in. You are in the entertainment business. I know you think "the owner hired me on because he really wants to win". I can guarantee you that while that is probably true, after taking a week off from work, spending thousands to travel, get the boat there, and paying for everyone having a good time is a top priority and winning is secondary. A week of fun and a podium is FAR better than a week of misery and a win. A year from now the owner will have long forgotten that your magical jib trim made all the difference, but he'll always remember how nice you were to his son/wife, and that great bar you took him to. The current crop of "pros" seems to have not learned these lessons. Some are good, but many show up in their Volvo Ocean Race gear, treat every event like it's the AC, and have all the f____g answers. Let's set them straight!
  15. Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm looking for a sailing opportunity/crew position that will take me across the Atlantic Ocean. I have experience, and can contribute $ toward essential expenses (such as food/water fuel etc.) This is my situation, and any constructive input is welcome (key word constructive): I am available starting in May-until Nov. I am currently located in New Orleans, however I am happy to travel to Florida or the Caribbean for the best option when it comes to finding a boat. I've been in contact with some boat owners, and trying to get my ducks in a row, but if I can not get something lined up via the internet and skype interviews, is it smarter to head to the Keys, or is there specific island port in the Caribbean where it's common to find crew positions on boats heading across the Atlantic? Any tips on where I can find a position on someone's boat? I also want to stay respectful and not assume any entitlement in my search for a work-ride. I'm flexible and easy going, but feeling a tad anxious as the months tick away. I don't want to get left behind! That's all. Thanks ya'll.
  16. Hello to all skippers! I am looking for a boat for the Miami to Havana race! I'm a San Francisco Sailor with lots of experience and I'm dead-set on doing this race. I has a boat all set up, but skipper had to cancel. I already bought my plane tickets to Miami, and then from Havana to SF (had worked those details out already with the skipper) so unfortunately I'm in a bit of a bind. Anyways, I'm no pro, but, I am a good sailor with lots of chartering and racing experience. I'm regular foredeck and spin trip on a J88, and have lots of experience on J105s, a Beneteau 41st, Expresses, and various 30ft cruisers. In 2016 I logged about 100 days on the water, including several ocean races. This A-sym spin trim and foredeck are my fortes, followed by jib trim, mast and rail meat. My downwind driving could use some work, but my upwind driving is decent. I'm 5'8 , 155 lbs. If you or any other skippers you know are looking for crew, pretty please let me know! email:
  17. Hello, Minimum Requirements 35yrs and younger, must weigh 180 pounds or less. Ideally this is what I'm looking for. I want someone that already knows how to sail. A College Sailor that is Skilled sailing a Dingy would be great. Sport Boat experience dealing with an asymmetrical sail also helps. Some experience on the Bow and willing to be trained. Is excited about working on the Bow!! Is willing to be dedicated to a Reasonable Race Schedule. I'm not interested in teaching anybody how to sail so if you don't know don't apply. We sail out of Milwaukee Yacht Club and mostly race on Saturdays. We do travel with the Boat and have Raced Key West, Chicago NOOD and J/88 North Americans in New York this fall. Key West 2nd, Chicago NOOD 3rd and not so good in the North Americans. Lots of mistakes! 2017 we will travel to St Pete to do the St Pete NOOD and maybe another race if possible. Colors Regatta, Chicago NOOD. Possibly the 2017 NAs'. 2018 we will start with Key West and work the program north. We sail with our friends and have lot's of fun, while been successful on the race course. We like to goof off a lot too! Please contact Tod
  18. I am in Melbourne for a week, thinking the best way to spend the weekend would be on the water. Male, 49, reasonably fit. Grew up sailing Bluenose in Nova Scotia, (23" sloop rigged keel boat) Not excited with out of control spinakers but game for it all. contact me at or whatsapp +16043665087 Cheers, Mike
