You need not be a member to participate, but we hope you will join, sometime during your first season with us. That way, we'll have record of your name, get to know the names of your regular crew/kids, and learn about the boat you sail.
You have no obligation to us.
Once you've sailed a full season, Marc may/will ask you to committee (at a future race date). It's not difficult, even if you've never done it before. You will gain new, and valuable, perspective from the experience; it's important growth.
The committee is Always Right; that in itself is great! Sailors on the course are amiable and forgiving; we all had a first time. You will be appreciated!
Marc, our leader, has made the "job" easy: automated start machine, all supplies, and clear instructions. We encourage you to bring friends/family; extra eyes to spot the sail numbers as boats finish is handy. If you serve alone, ask help from fans/onlookers. People like to be included in Creekfleet!
Email Marc Meyer with any questions. Post to our mailing list that you are committee on (whatever) date, especially if you'd like to enlist a helper ahead of time. Great way to get to know other Creekers!
Read our short, combined committee and racing form (includes sample of a recorded race) to familiarize yourself how-to, prior to arriving "for duty."
Committee should arrive at 5:30; 6 PM LATEST!
Early-arriving racing skippers will tow, and set the marks. We ask different sailors each week to tote and set at least ONE mark. If one/few, or Marc alone, must set all 6 marks, it will result in a delayed start of the first race.
Be kind. Be helpful. Share what you know. Creekfleet is a grassroots club. We each have different personalities and different skills. Do what you do best, and everybody wins.
