‘Crew In Cowes’ is a local website dedicated to helping yachtsmen find crew for sailing in the Solent throughout the year.
The heart of the site is the Forums where skippers and owners can look for crew and people looking for sailing opportunities can also add details of their own availability, experience etc.
There are many racing events throughout the year in the Solent & opportunities exist all the time for both experienced & novice crew alike.
Both beginners and experienced sailors can enjoy the ‘Crew In Cowes’ online community dedicated to racing here in the Solent.
For the absolute beginner we have added various “Beginners Guides” on ‘What to wear’, ‘Do’s & Don’ts’, ‘Sailing Terminology’ and ‘Essential knots’ to help get people started.
If you want to go sailing but don’t know where to start, register on the ‘Crew In Cowes’ site, post your details & have fun.
Additionally, why not pop into CCYC and have a chat with one of the many friendly local yachtsmen. Very often a casual chat will be rewarded with information about crewing possibilities.
