Position: Foredeck,Grinder
Experience: Beginner
Comments: Hello, I am sailor looking to gain experience in longer races. I spent a decade as a Laser racer, before branching out into bigger boats. I singlehanded 200 miles down the east coast from new jersey to Delaware in 2020 on a 26 footer. In 2022 I singlehanded 800 miles down the coast from north Carolina to Miami, before adding crew for some 300 odd miles in the Bahamas where I currently am. I have spent many days sailing lake Huron and although I am less familiar with the intricacies of large racing boats, I am all too familiar with the physical rigors of such adventures and am fully prepared.

Comments: I have 5 persons and could use two more for the Bayview to Mackinac race. Three of this crew, including myself, have extensive experience in blue water sailing including three Transpac race. However, since we are originally from California have not done any Mackinac Race. Therefore, we are going to do both this season.
