Don't own a boat, but still want to feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face? The National Yacht Club has a highly popular Crew Bank for members without boats who want to race or cruise, with or without experience. The Crew Bank also provides a resource for boat owners to find Crew to help them race or cruise.
Being in the city and close to downtown means that sailors at the National can enjoy quick evening cruises and spur-of-the-moment day-sailing. There is no long drive; no ferry, and no launch to catch.
Serious racers, casual cruisers, complete novices: all are welcome to join the Crew Bank, which is included in the cost of membership. Sailboats of all shapes and sizes participate, so you have the chance to find the boat and crew that’s right for you.
