Port Credit Yacht Club - Crew and Skippers mixer night

Interested in racing on a sailboat? Do you need crew to race on your sailboat?

Port Credit Yacht Club invites you for 'New Crew and Skippers Mixer Night'


Are you a racing skipper looking for reliable crew that is experienced but hasn’t a boat or isn’t experienced, but is enthusiastic about learning to race a sailboat? Or, are you a sailor looking for a boat on which to crew so you can hone sailing skills or learn to be part of a racing team? This event is organized for you to meet compatible people before going out on the course.

For those interested in long distance racing, this night is designed for Skippers who would like to race the LO300 but can’t find dedicated crew and crew who are interested but can’t find a boat. This is an opportunity for them to meet and see if they are compatible.

This evening is also for people who are interested in ‘around the cans’ racing, PCYC holds regular Monday and Wednesday races from May to September. Monday night racing is ‘White Sail’ only suited for the beginner or more laid back racer. Wednesday night is ‘Spinnaker night’ for the more advanced and competitive people.
The timing of this event was deliberately planned such that a team would have enough time to practice a few times before race nights begin. Alternatively, if they are planning to do the long distance course, the new people would have ample opportunity to race together and try the Susan Hood Trophy Race on June 1. This race is good proving ground for the LO300.

Experienced skippers and crew will be there to answer questions and provide advice.

When: Wednesday May 2nd, 2012
Time: 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Where: Port Credit Yacht Club
Lakefront Promenade
Mississauga, Ontario
L5E 3G6
Phone: 905-278-5578

Crew andskipper information forms will be available at the door, but it is preferable if you send it to us before the event so we can forward it to interested parties.

To get the ‘Crew Information Form’ or put your name on the ‘Skippers looking for crew list’: please contact Monica Doedens at mndoedens@gmail.com or Simon de Groot at scdegroot@rogers.com
