Crew positions are available on a limited basis to WYS members who bid for the opportunity to race with one of the instructors. The highest bidder can select the Instructor they want to race with, and the remaining crew positions will be assigned by the Principal Race Officer based on bid value, highest amounts awarded first. A bid of $100 will guarantee a crew position.

2019 Fundraiser Benefit - Funds raised from bids for crew positions were to benefit WYS Youth and Adult sailors that wanted to expand their horizons and compete in regional and national sailing events. These funds provided sailing experiences at a different level for our sailors, and helped to keep WYS on the map on the national sailing level. 

2018 Fundraiser Benefit - Funds raised by bids for crew positions in last year's Instructor's Challenge will benefit the Donnelly Brothers' campaign to make the Irish 2020 Olympics Sailboat Racing Team in their 49er sailboat. Follow Tadgh and Sean Donnelly on Facebook at  Donnelly Brothers Sailing.
