CORA Facebook Crew/Boat Finder Group
CORA is committed to connecting Crew with CORA Racing Boats, and we've created two new means to do such. For immediate, real time connection between crew and boat owners, we've created a CORA Facebook Crew/Boat Finder public group where you can post your availablity to crew, and where skippers can post their needs for crew for specific races. Click HERE to join this group.
Additionally, we've added a Crew Board on this homepage where you can sign in and post your sailing resume/desires and where skippers can post their crew needs.
