Individuals interested in participating as crew in racing and other on-water activities are asked to consider the following:
If you are not an FBYC member and are participating as a regular crew member on an FBYC member's boat on a 'regular' basis should join the Club as a Crew member. Further information is available in the membership section of the website
Note also that you can access the crew bank essentially by just up turning at the club, ready to sail, on any given Wednesday evening around 5:30 throughout the sailing season or 90 minutes before the start of a non-series race. Crew looking for boats gather at the picnic table nearest the flag pole. If you have questions ask anyone or go to the yellow committee boat on C dock. This is a great way to try out racing before making a commitment for the entire season, or to try out more than one boat before deciding to sail regularly with a given crew.
Please note that by completing the document and returning it to us, you agree to have your contact information displayed on the member's only section of our website for potential skippers to review, and contact you about crewing opportunities on their vessel.
