    Default Crew seeking sites ?

    Hi

    Looking for 2 crew from Grenada to ABC's in late May early June , would anyone recommend any crew seeking sites , never had to find crew before other than a short run and would appreciate a point in the right direction 👍

    I used Crewseekers.net for someone to join me Solent to St Malo last year. Worked great; quality people who sign up as crew. Had a great passage over 3 days with an intelligent and personable Austrian; great company, solid character and dependable and dutiful crew when moments called for it.

    More commitment from Crewseekers as they have to pay to join. Mostly freeloaders, not all, looking for holiday sailing with Crewbay.

    I've used Sailing Networks quite successfully in the past. But not quite sure what is going on there. The original .com site seems to be shutting down, and a new .net site seems to have popped up to replace it.

    Only used it for crew for weekends or short hops across the Channel.

    If you are a member of the Cruising Association then they have an area for skippers seeking crew and vice versa.

    There is a Grenada Cruisers facebook page that often has crew looking to go West.

    Findacrew works for some.

    I sail in an area, that if you wanted to charter a 40ft + boat you are looking at between €2500-3500 pw. or around 600 shared cabin. Why do people on Crewseeker/ Crewbay think they can come for free?
