Learn how to get lots of crewing opportunities with My Book, How to Be a Popular Crew

how to be a popular crew

“You just can’t get the crew these days!”

Transform your experience of getting into sailing with my book, How to Be a Popular Crew. It doesn't teach you how to sail, rather, it’s a book that explains how the world of yachting works and how you can best gain experience to be successful as an aspiring yacht crew member. The goal  of the book is to help you become the most popular crew in your yacht club, so you’re invited onto members' boats again and again. Not only will newcomers to the sport find this volume invaluable, but skippers will welcome it to present to their novice crew, so they quickly understand what is required of them.

Avoid Frustration

I wrote this book because I was exasperated with the ridiculous situation that we currently have. Willing, would-be crew members are left ashore, frustrated, to prop up the yacht club bar, while lonely skippers go sailing short-handed. There’s a simple reason for this. Most novices haven’t a clue as to what is required of them, some simply don’t have what it takes, and many don’t know how to get started. Who can blame them? The secrets have never been explained to them, until now!


If you want to get crewing and you don’t want to fall foul of these problems, then this is the book for you. The tips, knowledge, observations, and stories in this volume, many of them highly amusing but each illustrating a serious point, help you make a start in a way that makes skippers and boat owners want to invite you back.

Passion Project

Apart from writing and coaching, my other great passion is sailing, and I’m a non-practising qualified RYA Yachtmaster Instructor. I’ve been invited back to crew many times on the boats of my sailing companions, and many people have crewed on boats that I have owned or chartered.

Get invited to crew on yachts again and again with my book, How to be a Popular Crew.
