Crew Bank

Postings from previous sailing seasons have been removed. All skippers and crew are asked to re-register at the beginning of a new sailing season. For reference only, here is last year's Crew Bank.

Let’s connect skippers and crews who want to race or cruise at our club.

Skippers

There are many skilled sailors in the crew bank, and many people that we would love to introduce to our sport. They’re looking for weeknight and weekend racing and cruising, both dinghy and keelboat. Keep checking this list! Or post your crew needs; there are people searching for a boat who haven’t posted here.

Crew

With NSC's active weeknight and weekend racing program, there are lots of opportunities to get out racing -- check out NSC's Racing Program Overview. Other boat owners may be looking for crew for weekday, weeknight, or weekend pleasure sailing.

Alternatively, you may wish to drop down to the club on a race night and hang out at the Crew Table. Skippers will occasionally look for crew if they are short, particularly on windy evenings. Best time to be there is 5:00 - 5:30 p.m., as boats usually leave the dock 5:30 - 5:45 p.m. Ask skippers walking to their boat if they need any extra crew. For dinghy and catamaran racing on Wednesdays, a Crew Table is in the tent next to the sailing school.

Another idea is to come to the bar any night after racing (the boats usually start coming in around 7:30 p.m.), and ask around. You might find a boat looking for your help and skills the following week, or for a weekend race or cruise. At the very least, you will find a happy and noisy crowd, and some great food and beer. For the racing schedule see the Calendar in the Sailing Instructions, or the NSC Google Calendar.

NSC Membership

Non-members are welcome to register on the Crew Bank. However, those who crew regularly are expected to become NSC members. The current (2022) fee for a crewing member is $194.00 + HST (no initiation fee), per our fee schedule. Skippers, please remind your crew of the need to support the club and NSC's racing program by becoming an NSC member. For more information, contact the Membership Director.

Expectations

When committing to a crew or skipper, be sure that you have a good understanding of the other's expectations. For cruising/pleasure sailing, your outing will usually be weather dependent. However, races are run rain or shine; for the Frostbite series, even snow is not cause to cancel racing. If there are active thunderstorms, racing will normally be postponed ashore, but often such storms move through quickly, allowing racing to proceed after some delay. So even if there is a torrential thunderstorm at 4:00 or 5:00 p.m., it does not mean that racing is cancelled for the day. If there is no wind, keelboats will almost always head out regardless, and often enough wind fills in to run a race. Hence, most skippers expect all of their crew to show up at the club, regardless of the forecast or actual weather.

Remember to wear non-marking, close-toed shoes; you may also want to bring a water bottle, and your own foul-weather gear and life-jacket if you have it, though many skippers have gear that you could use. Depending on the weather, and especially for dinghy crews, a dry change of clothes in the car is recommended.

Removing your Crew Bank post

We try to ensure our Crew Bank is kept current, so if you have found a boat, or a crew, or no longer wish to have your post up for whatever reason, please complete the Crew Bank form and select "Remove me from the crew bank". For any other questions or issues, please send an e-mail to Ted Ceelen, the Crew Bank Coordinator

Steve MacMullin, smacmullin at gmail dot com, 613-867-7967
Shark looking for crew specifically for the local regatta June 18, 19 - but also likely regular openings on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are reasonably competent sailors with the white sails and are new to racing and spinnaker. Crew who want to learn along with us are welcome, but experienced crew that may be able to help us learn is even better. We have no expectation/intention to be competitive at this time. We want to have fun, be social, and become better sailors. Looking for compatible attitudes. (27 May 2022)

Happily just completed my aboard basic cruising- skipper with Advantage boating and currently hold a Crewing Membership. I am looking to learn as much as I can on keelboats from racers and cruisers. With being in an on call rotation with work, my availability drops every six weeks Evenings/weekends only and short notice is fine with me. Most interested in the Thursday evening sailing and weekend cruising opportunities. I'm a 29 year old former rugby player and I definitely still have good strength while being a bigger guy. My biggest goal with sailing is to sail the Caribbean and as far as my comfort allows me. I am good to be laid back, but I also have a very competitive side to me. Texting is probably best as I work a lot. Really looking forward to learning and getting better! (31 May 2022)

I am a fluently bilingual 47 yrs old women, relatively good shape. I am willing to commit to a crew on a regular basis, or not. I realize I am completely new and very “green”.

I am working full time, but I am quite flexible on week nights and on the week-end. I would love to hear from you. (29 Apr. 2022)

I am a beginner. Member of BYC and NSC. I am a woman in my late 40s - I will be taking on-the-water portion of sailing lessons from Advantage Boating in early June 2022 (taking theory course, now, and started playing the 'virtual regattas,' online, for fun), and plan to attend beginner racing events in May/June 2022 with NSC. Low fitness level at present / physical limitations (occasional back issues / sciatica flare-ups) - need lighter/less strenuous tasks, especially to start. Want to learn to sail, and have fun, helping out as crew, with cruising and / or racing / JAM, etc. No boat preference, but if there are upper weight restrictions on the boat, I may not be suitable as crew. Live in Bells Corners very close to BYC and NSC, so may be able to help out, on relatively short notice. Available weekday evenings (except when attending the anticipated beginner racing days on Mondays in May/Fridays in June, I believe). Also available weekends on Saturday (late afternoons / even ings only) and Sunday (may be available mornings, if I have advanced notice, but prefer afternoons / evenings). Feel free to call me, if you need someone (try both phone #s - 647# is my work cell phone, but I usually have it with me; the 613 # is a landline). Email is not checked that often, so better to call me, or text my work cell. I'm fully vaccinated, including the booster shot. (16 Feb. 2022)

Want to learn to sail, and have fun, helping out as crew, with cruising and / or racing / JAM, etc. No boat preference, but if there are upper weight restrictions on the boat, I may not be suitable as crew. Live in Bells Corners very close to BYC and NSC, so may be able to help out, on relatively short notice. Available weekday evenings (except when attending the anticipated beginner racing days on Mondays in May/Fridays in June, I believe). Also available weekends on Saturday (late afternoons / even ings only) and Sunday (may be available mornings, if I have advanced notice, but prefer afternoons / evenings). Feel free to call me, if you need someone (try both phone #s - 647# is my work cell phone, but I usually have it with me; the 613 # is a landline). Email is not checked that often, so better to call me, or text my work cell. I'm fully vaccinated, including the booster shot. (16 Feb. 2022)
