Scan This Code and Go Sailing

Tired of scanning another QR code and just finding a beer list at your local brewpub? Now you can scan a QR code to join summer beer can racing. Or sail over the horizon. Or, if you print and post the Latitude 38 Crew List flyer on some underutilized, outdated bulletin board, you might alter the life of some person you don’t even know by connecting them with their as-yet-unknown sailing future.

Neat and organized — probably posted by the navigator.

Improvised and probably done in haste. Must have been posted by the Foredeck Union. Hey, it works.

Summer is coming, the days are getting longer, and the rains will be stopping. (Actually, what rain?) The most active sailing season is ahead, and boats will be looking for crew to race, daysail, head to the Delta or sail down the coast. The Latitude 38 Crew List has over 500 people on it, looking to become crew, or skippers looking to find crew. There are always more crew looking for boats than there are boats looking for crew, but that’s because every boat needs only one skipper and usually many crew. You can sign up right here, right now so you don’t have to run around looking for a bulletin board with a QR code on it.

Many boats need lots of crew, so you never know where you’ll end up.

Signing up on the Crew List may just change your life. Printing and posting our QR code Crew List flyer may just change someone else’s life. It never hurts for new crew to show up with a six-pack of their favorite beverage (in the old days we used to say beer) to be consumed after a day of sailing. A lot of boats have changed hands during the pandemic, with 2021 brokerage sales up 28% over 2020. That means there are a lot of new owners who may need a hand.

So post it or scan it, then sign up and go sailing.
