Tomorrow is Latitude 38‘s Fall Crew List Party — our semiannual crew-mingling soiree — and we’re looking forward to catching up with and meeting sailors from all over the Bay Area. As of this morning, we have sold over 160 tickets, which means there should be plenty of opportunities for you to connect with fellow sailors, whether you are looking for crew, or looking to crew.

Before you go …
Have you signed up on our new Crew List page?
Latitude 38‘s Crew Lists are designed to get people who want to crew in contact with skippers of boats that need crew for all forms of recreational sailing. Unfortunately, we were unable to import the data from the old website and are asking current crew list members to re-enter their information. You can join them by entering your new Crew Listing now.
We’ll be drawing names to win a Latitude 38 hat from everyone whose name is entered by 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 8 (tonight!) – the day before our Fall Crew List Party.
All of our crew parties are geared toward helping people find sailing opportunities for cruising, racing or daysailing. The Fall Crew List Party is ideal for boat owners seeking crew who want to head south to Mexico, or crew who want to do the same. It’s also well suited for folks looking for midwinter race crew, or anyone who just wants to sail the Bay. For your convenience, hand sanitizer will be placed at tables throughout the party area, and mask wearing is encouraged, as is being vaccinated.
COVID precautions: We are closely monitoring the global and local situation regarding the pandemic. We recommend being vaccinated if you are able, and wearing a mask. We’ll have masks and hand sanitizer available. We will adjust plans as guided by local restrictions at the time of the event and will notify all advance ticket holders of any changes. Money will be refunded if the party is canceled due to COVID. Please refer to Marin County Health for the most recent updates: https://coronavirus.marinhhs.org/
