      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Highly Capable Novice Looking for More Experience

Recommended Posts

U.S. based but highly flexible dependent on opportunity - looking to dramatically increase my skills, mileage, knowledge and experience and am very passionate/excited to put forth the work and effort in order to do so.


I'm a very quick study who's highly capable, focused and diligent; I've crewed/raced on a J24, Beneteau 36.7, Evelyn 28 and Swan 44 over the last couple of years, and just came back from Heineken regatta few weeks ago and about to head off to Charleston Race Week in the states and Antigua Sailing Week in a few weeks. I've also been a charter chef on an SXM voyage last year and very much enjoyed that experience as well, hoping to do more as opportunities allow.


Ideally I'd love to build mileage to qualify for more offshore opportunities, and to get the hands on, practical knowledge I need to become a comfortable, safe and more than competent mariner. I LOVE racing, but I also realize getting on as many boats as possible, as frequently as possible, is what will bring me to the next level.


If anyone out there is looking for crew, or looking for someone who is just the right amount of "crazy enough" who might be a bit new to the game but an easily trainable hard worker - please get in touch! I am literally open to any and all opportunities, even if it might require me to pick up and move about for some period of time. I would love to learn anything and everything about the boat and sailing, i.e. boat work, maintenance, repair, engine work, mechanical work, sail making, actual sailing skills on water, etc - anything and everything to increase my experience! Additionally my personality is pretty fun to be around, I'm dedicated and always committed and I'm not a half bad sailor, either.




Thanks to all those who have read this far in advance!

Hey Newbie,  This is very last minute and not sure we will need you, but if you are very flexible we may need an extra hand for a sail on Beneteau 30E from Deale, MD to Cape May this weekend.  Leaving Union, NJ  tomorrow at about 5 p.m.  One guy - boat owner - and  me.  Our 3rd may have to back out due to health problem.  Will know tonight.  Lmk if you might be interested.
