As part of our Club Development Plan we are delighted to launch a new feature on our club website to help members get on the water. It's called 'Crew Finder' and is an easy to use feature that matches members who are looking for crew with members who want to crew.
If you want to make yourself available for crewing opportunities
- Logon to the website and on the Portal Page (the page that loads when you logon) click on 'My Availability on the right hand menu
- You are then presented with a page where you can turn your availability to crew on or off. The default state is off
- If you want to make yourself available tick the 'I am available' option and you will then be presented with a number of options and free text fields to indicate your availability. You can add as much or as little information as you want. Obviously the more information you add the more likely you are to find a match
- Once you have added your information click on the 'Update' button at the bottom of the page and your availability is now registered.
If you are looking for a crew for your boat
- Logon to the website and on the menu at the top of the page click of 'Crew'
- You will initially be presented with a screen saying 'No match found you have not specified any interests'. There are also two links; 'View all recent listings' and 'Update your crew requirements'
- If you click on the 'View all recent listings' you will see a list of members who have posted their availability to crew.
- If you click on 'Update your crew requirements' you will be presented with a list of your boats and for each boat on the right hand side of the page you can turn 'crew finder' on or off. The default is off
- If you turn 'Crew Finder' on you will be presented with a list of options and free text fields to enter information about the crew you require.
- Once you have added your information click the 'Update button' at the bottom of the page and your crew requirements are registered and the system will then try and match available crews with boats requiring crew
- Go back to the 'Crew' home page and any matches will be listed. If no matches are listed you can always look at recent listings to see if there are any crew available that may have slipped through the matching process.
Please do try it out and let us have your feedback.
