Smile The $50 Cruising Club Is Now OPEN!

At last the official launch

The 1st rule of $50CC is - there are no rules!

But there is an Ethos:-

- to share a slice of the real life Cruising experience on the basis of mutual respect -

This translates into sharing the financial cost of life aboard.

For more details visit:-

The $50CC


There are even some FAQ's

Have already acquired a few members - but early days yet on signing up Host Skippers and Guest Crew (can of course be both!), but even if not yet (ever?!) going to be either a Host Skipper or Guest Crew yourself don't be shy about signing up as a Member to show support for the idea (and make the place look busy ).

Still feeling our way forward on the offers (Crew / Skippers) - but it's only been a day so far and already off the ground on that Will be interesting to see how the idea develops over the next few months.........

Hi David,
When you first mentioned this, I thought you were kidding.
Does membership come with a free set of steak knives.

I see you have been "manually" making the FAQ sticky at the top of the list - I haven't discovered an elegant way to do that with social groups. The description seems to be the only way to make something stay at the top of the postings list.

I guess the question is how will the social group be used?

It's your banana but I figured it was for a collection or list of boats looking for cruisers and cruisers looking for boats. To make that more useful it might require some title guidelines.

I posted my boats availability with the following title structure

"(Ride Availalble/Ride Wanted)(Location)(Dates -optional)
(Body text)"

Sample
Quote:
Ride Available - Singapore - date omitted
We have a 26 footer. Mostly do days sails + some weekender trips to Malaysia and Indonesia.

Willing to offer rides to anyone serious about sailing.

No charge - bring beer.

PM for details.
This structure makes the SG searchable by location.

If the SG becomes a chat room it will be hard to find hookups.

Just a quick up date..........

Been going now under a week - and membership already in the 20's And also with offers from Host Skippers (worldwide! ) as well as from potential Guest Crew.

Still early days yet of course, but hopeful signs


(This is definately not Spam, no sirrreee. definately not Spam. The $50CC has a strict anti-Spam policy )
