First timer: Lake Erie area.

Hello my name is William and I had my first sailing experience last summer on Lake Erie. I would like some advice on finding crewing opportunities on Erie. Any advice or information will be appreciated.

Welcome William!

Not sure what area on Lake Erie you are looking at but I would suggest looking up the Sailing Clubs. Both the U.S. and Canada have some active racing fleets and they are always looking for crew. Good Luck.

Steve

Lake Erie is a big lake. Suggest you go to the nearest yacht club but the season is over.
