Racing Crews Wanted / Crews Needed

If you find yourself at the club at a weekend and you have no one to sail with you will now find a Crew/Helm register on the Racing Notice Board (outside the snack bar) . . .

Please put your name, contact and boat details on the register if you are looking for someone to sail with that weekend.

Hopefully this will enable more of you to get out racing if you find yourself at the Club with no one to sail with.

You can also contact your class captain as they can often link people together who need someone to sail with. Class captain details can be found on the following webpage: http://www.hisc.co.uk/sailing-racing/hisc-classes/class-captains/.

Many classes are now using Facebook as a way to swap this information on a regular basis, the class captains can provide more details.
