Sail-World.com : Calling all Desperate Sailors

Calling all Desperate Sailors

'Desperate sailors - you may be one but don’t yet know it'    .    Click Here to view large photo

Are you a desperate sailor? Perhaps you don't think so, but when you have read this great idea, maybe you'll WANT to be a Desperate Sailor. Why? Well, for instance, maybe you're cruising and you suddenly need to make a trip home. Desperate Sailors could find you a boat minder. You're in a new anchorage and desperately need a mechanic. Desperate Sailors tells you where the nearest one is

Maybe you've left it too late in the day for a longer voyage, but desperately need crew with good watch keeping experience. Desperate Sailors connects you.

Or maybe you arrive in a new anchorage and desperately want to know merely where the next social event is. Guess what - Desperate Sailors can connect you. Now you can relax and prepare for the pot luck, book swap, BBQ, boat jumble, open mic night...

How does it work? Like most other things these days, it's web-based. What you need to do is SIGN UP for FREE and create your CREW, BOAT OWNER or SERVICES profile now.

Not convinced yet? Here are some more Desperate Sailor features:

Other Desperate Sailors Features:

You can also upload photos for your event (you must be signed up and logged in to create an event).

Or if you'd simply like to say hello to one of cruising buddies, you can do it via the guestbook. Remember, anyone can read your guestbook entry. If you would prefer your message to be private, simply send them a message (you must be signed up and logged in to use this feature).
