Sail Connect is a sailing-specific platform that helps connect boats, crew and clubs. BYS has partnered with Sail Connect to help get more keelboats and members out on the water.
If you want to sail more, then by maintaining a profile and setting your availability, BUT most importantly, registering interest in the events that you want to sail in, boat owners can find you and invite you to go sailing.
To find events, search upcoming events using filters to see only what is relevant to you. Alternatively, all our club events are listed at the bottom of our club profile. See which boats might be looking for crew. Be sure to register your interest on the events page, as this means you’ll be found first by boat owners vs. those that haven’t registered interest.
You’ll receive an invite from the boat; by accepting or declining promptly gives the skipper clarity over who is coming. Then enjoy the group chat as a communications channel to ensure you have all the important details, and be part of that all-important team building banter before the event!
