Crew
For other uses, see Crew (disambiguation), Crewe (disambiguation), and Crews (disambiguation).
A crew is a body or a class of people who work at a common activity, generally in a structured or hierarchical organization. A location in which a crew works is called a crewyard or a workyard.[1] The word has nautical resonances: the tasks involved in operating a ship, particularly a sailing ship, providing numerous specialities within a ship's crew, often organised with a chain of command. Traditional nautical usage strongly distinguishes officers from crew, though the two groups combined form the ship's company. Members of a crew are often referred to by the title Crewman.

Crew also refers to the sport of rowing, where teams row competitively in racing shells.[2]
