Attention Keelboat skippers & Sailors - Crew finder system

Many of you are often looking for crew to help you get on the water for racing. With the club Sign On App we are able to help you connect with those looking to sail and boats looking for crew using a feature call Crew Matching. This feature allows crew and skippers to get directly in contact and discuss what they are after, then on the day they sign in as per usual using the QR code.

Crew Sign On: QR Codes

To help the process of signing new crew onto your boat we have QR codes available for skippers to collect from the Sailing Office that can be placed on you boats. This will allow you to sign new sailors as either regular or one off and allow them to use their own smart device. Please collect these QR codes from the Sailing Office
