Your Crew

red witch crew

Red Witch is crewed by sailors local to here in Chicago, and those here for the summer passing through between ships. We have many tasks aboard, and we come from many backgrounds. Her crew includes computer programmers, artists, musicians, comedians, ministers, grad students, and woodworkers.

Our crew also includes you! If conditions are right, we sometimes need help in raising sail! Grab a halyard and hoist away!
