CALLING ALL CREW! And skippers seeking crew…

At the Second Friday Sailor’s Social in March – we are about to try something new! (Again? I hear you cry.)

Following the launch of a Yacht Section Crew Exchange WhatsApp group earlier this year, we would like to invite all you potential crew men & women out there, to come along to meet some of the crusty old sea-dogs that need the company; or those new boat owners – who might appreciate your skills & experience.

We hope that this event will give skippers & potential crew the opportunity to meet face to face – at an already convivial gathering – and be able to make arrangements to go sailing together.

You don’t need to have signed up on the new WhatsApp group before this meeting; nor do you need to have registered on the (already more or less defunct) website Crew Exchange; just come along to this evening!

So, if you are interested in crewing on a yacht – whichever section you belong to – come along on Friday, the 13thMarch at around 1900hrs, & hopefully you might meet some like-minded people. After all, it is Friday the 13th – what could go wrong?

And if you are interested in crewing opportunities; or in offering such opportunities on your yacht, but can’t make it on the 13th March, please get in contact with:

Jerry Quinton ( on 07941 572 409, or
