Crew/Boat Bank

This year we are trying a more actively managed approach to the crew and boat bank. People wanting to race and boats looking for crew can send their details to race@kingstonyachtclub.ca and the Race Office will try to match crew with boats

Crew/Boat Whiteboard

People looking to race on race nights can put their name on the whiteboard beside the bar and consult it for boats looking for crew. People will be guaranteed a spot on either a racing boat or the race committee boat. Likewise, boats looking for crew can consult the whiteboard for available people.
