Specializing purely in ocean sailing opportunities, OceanCrewLink.com is a new online directory of sailors and opportunities, which aims to connect boat owners with offshore sailing crew.
Developed by World Cruising Club (WCC), the leading Rally organizers wanted a new way for captains and crew to be able to contact each other; somewhere for ocean sailors to meet ocean going captains and provide an easy way for crew and captains to see if they “like the cut of your jib” when judging whether to join a boat or choose a crew member.
OceanCrewLink.com is a database of crew and opportunities – like an index card system. WCC have tried to make it simple, but to include the key questions about experience and abilities, dates and locations that often get left out of online ads. The new website replaces their previous Crewing Opportunities Forum and acts as a store for your sailing resume. As a user you can opt-in or out of the system without needing to re-enter your data.
Registration is easy and free! Just visit the website at www.oceancrewlink.com and click the registration icon. You will need to add some basic data to your profile before you can view other opportunities or crew in full. Then you can go back when it suits you to add more detail. You can even add a photo! Remember the more detail you add about your own experience, voyage history or skills, the more you will stand out from other sailors.
