- Name: Louis – experienced looking to crew
Message: We are moving to Hudson from Idaho and I am looking to crew, meet the sailing community in the area and have fun in regattas. I have sailed recently on Laser for regattas and SanJuan21. I have experiences on a variety of boats:
– as crew in regattas: Dufour40 (bow, trim, mast), GrandSoleil50 (overnight helm and all positions), J80 (trim, mast),
– as skipper in regattas: J80, SunFast3200, First36.5, First 25.7, Optimist, 420, Laser.
– leisure: Ponant, Dufour40, A35, GrandSurprise, etc.
I sailed keel boats mainly on the english channel between UK in France, Atlantic shores (France and Spain), and little time on lakes (Finland).
I can help with any positions and looking forward to Crew with somebody. Please contact me.
- Name: Chad
Message: Hello, Skipper! I grew up in a powerboat family, and bought my first 13′ aluminum rowboat with an outboard by the time I was 12. I sailed my first dinghy as a kid in Scouts, then saved up enough of my lawn mowing money to buy an old Sunfish from a nearby neighbor. Whenever I had a chance, I’d sail my cousin’s sailboard, and then I went off to college, started a career and family. Now, I’m ready to pick up where I left off and registered for this summer’s ASA 101 course with Saint Croix Sailing School. I’m eager to learn on any vessel, and ultimately would love to own a cruiser for retirement. Meanwhile, any time on the water would be time well spent learning the ropes.
I live in Woodbury, minutes away from the marina, and I have a flexible work schedule – as I mostly work from home. My daughter is in the Opti class again this year, and we plan on participating on Wednesday Family Race nights! We hope to see you there!

- Name: Philip Burton
Message: Recently moved to Wisconsin from North Carolina. I got my start sailing in high school by racing keel boats offshore. I raced 22′-42′ boats offshore for 6 or 7 years before moving to lightnings (19′ three person boat). I raced lightnings for about 10 years. Our boat won several district championships and I’ve raced in the Lightning North American Championships many times. I generally do foredeck because I’m light and agile, but can do other roles as well. I’ve taken a few years off from sailing and am looking to get back into racing or even just booze cruising. If you’re looking for regular crew or even just a pick-up person, let me know.
- Name: Paul Fuhrman
Message: Hi, I crewed for a few years on Harmony on Tuesday nights. Harmony isn’t racing Tuesdays anymore so I am looking for another boat to crew on. I’m not picky about what I do on the boat, just happy to get out on the water.
