We are actively looking for regular crew to round our somewhat successful program on Western Long Island Sound for some Thursday night and weekend regatta racing.

The boat is Soverel 33, Deviation.

We are willing to work with less experienced people as long as you are enthusiastic, competitive, love sailing but most important, dedicated and reliable.

We race on Weekends and Thursday nights, primarily in PHRF with an occasional one-design regatta. On Thursdays you will get to try out different positions on the boat, seemingly at random, weekends your position will be assigned as needed -- preference given to overall participation.

We sail out of New Rochelle, NY on Long Island Sound. We usually do fairly well, but past results is not necessarily an indication of future performance.

We race to win, but since the crew is primarily with friends and family it is more importantly we always have fun doing it, even if we don't win.

This is our 2012 racing schedule:

Apr 28,29, May 5,6 American YC Spring Series
May 10     Can One Thursday night Series begins
Jun 2-3   City Island Cup
Jun 10     Port Washington Day Race
Jun 18 - 22   Block Island Race Week
Jun 30 - Jul 1   Soverel 33 Nationals
Jul 14,15,21,22       Larchmont Race Week
Sep 22-23, 29-30  American Fall Series
Oct 13-14, 20-21  Manhasset Bay Fall Series

We still need crew; everyone I know is finding one excuse after another why they don't want to sail.

Racing in 20kts with only 4 crew on a soverel is fun, but it does not lend towards good results.

Maybe we are not nice enough . . .

I will spy on Espo and Do Rag to see how they get crew. :ph34r:
