Crew List Party Tonight!

Prior to the Crew List Party, Sal from Sal’s Inflatables will give a very informative live demo of what it’s like to get in a liferaft.

"So, what the heck is a Crew List Party?" If you’re new to the San Francisco Bay sailing scene, you might not know that Latitude 38‘s biannual Crew List Parties are casual ‘mixers’ that facilitiate connections between skippers in need of crew with crew in search of a ride.

Tonight’s party, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Alameda’s Encinal YC, will be specifically focused on cruising to, and within, Mexico. We anticipate that dozens of skippers who are signed up with October’s Baja Ha-Ha rally will be trolling for additional crew members for either the two-week rally period, the delivery down the coast to the San Diego starting line, or post-rally cruising in Mexico and beyond.

Southbound skippers and wannabe crew have a great opportunity to meet up tonight at Encinal YC from 6-9 p.m.

So if you’re an able-bodied sailor with a good attitude and a little spare time, we’d highly encourage you to attend tonight’s shindig. Registered Ha-Ha captains and first mates get in free; all others pay $7 at the door. (No host bar; free snacks; door prizes.) Mexico cruising experts will be in attendance to share their insights.

Please note also that the party will be preceded by a complete liferaft training seminar by Sal’s Inflatable Services (beginning at 3:30). If you call now, you may still be able to reserve a spot for this highly informative course, which includes in-pool boarding practice: (510) 522-1824.

From time to time people ask us about the dates of the Baja Ha-Ha and whether or not they conflict with hurricane season in the Eastern Pacific — i.e., Mexico.
