Being more social with fellow Boaters, Yachtsmen & Forumites

Postby Old_Glow_In_The_Deep » Fri Dec 13, 2013 8:00 pm

Only a suggestion ... but! ... might it not be a reasonable suggestion / idea to have regional groups play host (offer spare berths on their respective boats) to those out of the immediate area?

I know we / some do this already .... but! (once again!) ... it would be good to give this a push and generate a positive social aspect to the sailing season ..... what say you all? :)

I think it is a great idea.

I am sure a Chent somewhere can find you a berth on the Chentleman's Cruise next year as a starter, with the Clyde Scuttlebutt cruise as an obvious chance for reciprocation.

I was about to say "Good luck with finding crew for a 23'er" when I recollected that Nick (with Garedfox) has sailed with me and was prepared to do it again although he did try to drown us both on the second occasion. Thinking on, I find that although I don't get many volunteers more than half have come back for more which is broadly in line with the proportion of other people's boats that I would sail on again. :santa:

"Good luck with finding crew for a 23'er"


Hey Mr Smooth(e) .... :wink:

I rarely have any problems finding crew .... in-fact there have often been comments such as "you're NOT all sleeping on there ... are you!?" :nod:

And! ... "I don't envy anyone sleeping on there after you-lot have had a night on the beer & curry" ... :shock: :P :wink:

John when are you going to admit its a tub not a sub youve got and encourage your crew to sleep side by side not under and over. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Looking for crew myself at mo, but must be prepared to scrape, rub, sand, wash, antifoul, varnish, buff, and wax, before I offer them a bit of reduced cost sailing! :santa:
