Join the Fleet!


There are a number of ways to join Shields Fleet One.

The vast majority of people participating in Shields sailing are sailing as crew.  Shields are normally sailed with 3-4 crew in addition to the helmsman.  Email the Fleet Captain to find a skipper needing crew.

Looking to steer a Shields? The the best option is to buy a boat.

Visit the Boats for Sale section of the Shields Class National website for the latest info on used boats on the market.

Or buy a new boat from Cape Cod Shipbuilding:

Cape Cod Shipbuilding, the original builder of the Shields, commissioned by Cornelius Shields along with Olin Stephens, is still making new Shields to this day. The boats are gorgeous and the craftsmanship unsurpassed.

Please feel free to contact the Fleet Captain for assistance in locating a Shields to crew on or to purchase, charter, or co-skipper.
