Boat Owner / Skipper

  • Do you find yourself staying home in perfect sailing weather because you can’t find crew for a day, weekend or more extended cruise ?
  • Would you like to sail to distant ports, but can’t find experienced crew?
  • Are you an experienced boat owner, who is interested in sailing and sharing knowledge with other skippers?
  • Would you like to swap ideas on sailing, equipment, fitting out, or cruising grounds?

If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these, then

The Pelagic Sailing Club is Your Solution!

Pelagic crew are experienced, and ready to help sail your boat for a day, a weekend, or a week or more. The Pelagic crew will pitch in on everything from setting sails, steering, navigation, and anchoring to helping with chores. And at the end of the season they don’t simply disappear.  They can be called upon to help with those haul out jobs in addition to helping prepare for launching in the spring. Both our skippers and crew have a wealth of experience to share with you. They can answer questions about gear you are considering for purchase, and they can tell you a bit more about the harbor you plan to visit on your next cruise.

To become part of the Pelagic Sailing Club’s Family, get started by requesting your application here!

To that end, each Boat Owner or Skipper applicant needs to complete three evaluation sails with someone who has been a member for at least two years.
