    Hi Captains

    I'm going to be new to the area around mid/late March, relocating from Utah mainly to get a boat and increase my sailing time and on bigger water.

    I'm somewhat experienced (see summary below), mainly lake not as much  coastal/ocean.

    Looking forward to sailing with you



    • Learnt sailing on the Norfolk Broads (UK) on Toppers mainly (think Laser just smaller), with some day sailers. 
    • Then not a lot apart from the odd day or 2 on vacations on smaller boats (lasers, hobies) 
    • A couple of years ago I did a passage from US Virgin to Key West on a 60' ketch
    • Last year I purchased an O'Day 25' and sailed ~ 100 days on Utah Lake. Entered and won the regatta with my daughters as crew (novice), there was only 4 or 5 boats in the novice 
    • Sailed several "beer can" races 
    • Took the club record for Solo distance in 24hrs, I stopped once I hit 100nm
    • Crewed and Captained an O'Day 30'
    • Spent a week in Long Beach doing US Sailing Basic Cruising and Bareboat Cruising class on a 40' Beneteau and 38' Lagoon

    I am looking for experienced crew for the 2021 season.  I have a couple of inexperienced crew but need crew who know how to sail and can help teach others.  Boat is a Hunter 460 cruising boat; it's comfortable but not designed for racing so please take that into consideration.  text me at 757-639-6671 if interested.  Thanks, Rob Williams S/V Set Free

    Hello! I was a college sailor who is interested in getting back out on the water socializing and racing. Any tips on how to get started?

    At this time, BBSA does not offer training for beginning sailors except for crewing with one of our racing skippers.   This year COVID has limited many of our training events.  

    We can try to get you on a racing boat if you are interested.  

    Also, you may find the information on this page interesting:
    At the bottom, we list local organizations that do offer training.

    Hi there! I'm somewhat new to the area but have been a lifelong sailor. I grew up racing 420s/lasers but my parents are super active in the Tartan-10 fleet back in Cleveland, so I grew up racing "big boats" too. It's been about a year since I've had time again to sail, but I'm a quick learner and have crewed on J-24s, Melges-32s, and pretty much any boat that needs a hand and will let me on! I sailed in college on the dinghy team and I'm looking to get involved in a Wednesday night series now thatI'm stationed here in Virginia Beach! 

    Give me a shout if you need a crew!

    Hi, I'm new to town (Norfolk) and sailing and am looking to join a boat as crew for Wed racing. I've taken a small keelboat class so I have some basic knowledge.

    Hello Everyone:

         I'm looking to be a crew member on someone's sailboat for the upcoming racing season.  I don't know much about sailing but I am good at following directions.   Also, if you are going to be repairing your boat and need a hand, let me know, as I would like to learn more about that as well.

    Feel free to let contact me, I'm available pretty much everyday.
