Hello! What are the odds?

Hi sailing folk.

What do you think the odds are of finding a place on a boat by posting in the 'Crew Available' section? Has anyone had much luck with it?

I'd like to sail to Iceland this summer. I'm in the UK now. Anyone going? Can I talk anyone into it?

Have fun

Cam

Really, I'd suggest you try the YBW forum. It's 90% UK sailors.
