Sail-World.com : Connecting boat owners and crew - new online directory
Connecting boat owners and crew - new online directory

'Matching the right crew with the right boat makes all the difference'    .

Want to go ocean sailing but don't have a boat? - don't know anyone with a boat sailing when and where you want to? Or maybe you're ready to cross an ocean, but are lacking crew? Here's a new online directory put out by the people with oceans of experience and a huge network of crew and boat owners: World Cruising Club, the operators of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) and many other ocean rallies.

Specialising purely in ocean sailing opportunities, www.oceanCrewLink.com is their new online directory of sailors and opportunities, which aims to connect boat owners with offshore sailing crew. Whether you are wanting to island hop in the Pacific or cross the Atlantic, whether you are a boat owner or a willing crew member this could be for you.

World Cruising Club has had plenty of experience in knowing that competent crew and a boat that needs them don't always find each other. They wanted a new way for captains and crew to be able to contact each other; somewhere for ocean sailors to meet ocean going captains and provide an easy way for crew and captains to see if they 'like the cut of your jib' when judging whether to join a boat or choose a crew member.

OceanCrewLink.com is a database of crew and opportunities - think of it like an index card system. They've tried to make it simple, but to include the key questions about experience and abilities, dates and locations that often get left out of online ads.

The new website will replace their previous Crewing Opportunities Forum and act as a store for your sailing resume. As a user you can opt-in or out of the system without needing to re-enter your data.

Ocean Crew Link has a special relationship with voyaging rallies like the ARC, Caribbean 1500 and World ARC, and is naturally World Cruising Club’s preferred crew matching service. Boat owners and charter companies use Ocean Crew Link to find crew for rallies and independent cruising.

Registration is easy and free! Just visit the website at www.oceancrewlink.com and click the registration icon. You will need to add some basic data to your profile before you can view other opportunities or crew in full.

Then you can go back when it suits you to add more detail. You can even add a photo! Remember the more detail you add about your own experience, voyage history or skills, the more you will stand out from other sailors. Ocean sailing is about people and personalities, so start a conversation and see where it takes you!

Visit Ocean Crew Link at www.oceancrewlink.com now and see for yourself.
