Type of boating I would like to experience: happy to go out on any but specifically looking to sail.
Boating background: I’ve been sailing much of my life on smaller boats with some experience crewing on larger vessels of up to 40 feet. I would say I am a moderately skilled sailor who is looking to gain experience sailing and learn along the way.
I would be interested in connecting to see if I’d be a good fit as crew. Catherine (206)369-1239

    Willing and able to learn. I’m new to sailing, at least physically doing it. I’m 43 and a strong, quick learner who has been through the 8 week small boat certification series. I love sailing… And some day hope to own my own boat. In the mean time I will work hard and would like to learn from a pro. Let me know if I can help, Thanks!

    Ready for on the water time:
    I started sailing last summer; starting in small boats; I have taken ASA 101 and 103; working on 105. I would love to get the opportunity to get more on the water time sailing to practice the skills I have learned. My longer term goals are to partake in racing activities out at shilshole and to feel comfortable crewing or skippering larger boats for longer exersions local or in warm waters.

    Greetings! I enjoy sailing and am available to crew. I volunteer on the V5 and have crewed on various vessels, both sail and motor. I was a boat partner for Beneteau 11.5 Idylle, but no longer own that boat. I have taken ASA 101 & 103. Experienced going through the locks.
    Goal is longer cruises, learn racing techniques (i.e. spinnaker) eventually skippering my own boat. If I can help on your boat, I’d love to!

  8. Sister Vegetable Pirate Wanted for Overnighter to Port Ludlow

    Good-natured and sturdy intermediate sailor seeks a more experienced sailor who would be comfortable skippering a Cal 25′ from Ballard to Port Ludlow. I manage a small co-op that is patiently revitalizing sail transport to demonstrate we can move local goods without climate-changing fossil fuel. We will sail the trip as much as possible, but the boat does have an outboard for emergencies.

    As a thank you, you’ll receive a box of organic vegetables, and if we sail cider, some Finnriver cider.

    Trip starts Friday morning, June 24th, from Ballard. Dock Friday night at Port Ludlow.

    Saturday AM, pick up the vegetables for the CSA and sail home. Arrive in Ballard early Saturday evening.

    Please contact me, Kathy Pelish, President and Cofounder, Salish Sea Trading Cooperative, 206-707-5793 (preferred), or email:

    I am new to sailing and begin instruction in 2 weeks. I’m strong and physically able to handle pretty much anything. Have had a bit of experience on a 46′ swan steering. It’s one of my new passions in life and looking to jump in whole heartedly! Yelena Dagaev 206.601.9197

    I am interested in finding crew for my Bayfield 29 sailboat in Bellingham, WA. I have been sailing sailboats for almost 15 years, with my husband for the first 8 years and the last 4 years on my own sailboat. Looking for people who have some experience and have time to get away. My boat dog, Woggie, is 13 years old and is a wonderful crew member. My cell is 360-333-7975.
