"Please out the arrogant prick that referred to his campaign as a "winning boat".
I'll gladly camp on his sorry ass at the next regatta. "


I too would love to know who the winning boat is. Is it winning like coming in first all the time or is it winning like Charlie Sheen?? My guess is Charlie Sheen.

You can put me down as one of the boats that won't race locally anymore.

I certainly appreciated the few people who took the time to welcome me in, but I have to say racing in Vancouver will never grow when most of the people I met seemed to care less about a new local skipper wanting to become part of the racing circuit.

Oh, maybe they were all worried I might try to poach crew from them

Good luck to you all, seriously it was a fun year.

Alfy OUT!

P.S. On a serious note, I hear you on this one Kate. As others have pointed out, a little crew cross-training is awesome, but let's not go deliberately looking to woo regular crew from dedicated racing campaigns.

Instead, talk to your friends, to your co-workers, the cute girl/guy in the coffee shop, and get them aboard. THAT'S the way we can build the sailing community...

Manana - Check your facts before slinging mud.
The long term crew of Maritime Diva are among my very best friends. Please air your own dirty laundry.

Having experienced the "crew poaching" issue, which did cause us to stop racing for awhile, I agree, it is not cool. And certainly not in a manner that belittles other skippers or teams.

But, it goes both ways. A skipper cannot force a crew member to jump ship or not.

Equally important is for crew to recognize that it they commit to being part of a team and playing to win, they need to show up, be regular and if they don't like the environment - then find another boat. Just like, if they are not working out, they don't get called again.

I think what happens, is that people new to sailing don't realize how much time it takes to build a team - in particular with newbie sailors - and that they will likely be asked to sail on another boat. It is hard not to ask people when you are looking for crew - but I don't think there is a skipper out there that would have a problem if they asked and someone said they were already committed for the season or otherwise.
