Crew email exchange

A Yahoo Group has been set up to bring together skippers and crew for cruising.  Anybody wishing to join this group will find the link on the Cruising page of the RFYC web site.

It works by skippers saying that they are going out on specific dates/times and requesting crew or potential crew asking if any skippers are going sailing and need crew.  The emails are received by everybody in the group and replies go to everybody in the group.  The net result being skippers and crew being brought together.

If this works for cruising, do any of the racing fraternity seek to use a similar process to get racing crew/experience?
