Fast learning experienced racer with an easy to get along with personality. I've participated in the same racing program for a decade-and-a-half, but that program is being shut down this year. Looking for a new racing program to join. I'm reliable and will show up. I've participated in the Race To Mackinac the past 10 years in a row. I've also participated in the past 6 races to Michigan City and back, and a Rolex Middle Sea race in Malta. I'm comfortable in most positions, but have the most experience on the foredeck of a Asym boat. If I'm contacted by multiple programs, preference will be given to a program that plans to Race to Mackinac and has room for me.

Mostly inland lake sailing on my own pocket cruiser. Have sailed 35' Hunter in SAN Diego and 32' island packet in Chesapeake Bay.

Race to Mackinac

I have never done any long distant racing but have always wanted to do the Chicago to Makinac. I guess you could say on my bucket list. I have been sailing almost 20 years longer on and off while I was in the Navy. I am quick learner as there will be on any new boat I come aboard and a very determined and hard worker.

Just finished the Columbia Yacht Club Adult Learn-to-Sail class and I'm hooked. I've been out a few times on a Farr 395 to practice and do the Beer Cans. I'm at a point where I feel like I both have a strong understanding of sailing and have A LOT to learn. I'm eager, fit, and ready to learn.

I own a Pearson 303 and like to crew with competitive teams. I've raced in the MAC last year, as well as the NOOD, Colors, Verve, Michigan City over night races. I've started as rail meat, but I have been feverishly working on sail trim and often do mainsail trim and helm - these should be tied at the hip....Would love to join a competitive team for the Mac if you have a last minute drop out. I've been known to like drinking beer and love exchanging jokes.

I am Marne Smiley. I have done one Mac race and many other races between Noods, the Verve, and J111 NAs. As much as I love sailing and want to be involved much of my time and energy has been trying to run the qualifying times for the Olympic Trials in the Marathon. Unfortunately an injury sidelined me and it was too late for me to find a boat for Mac. I will listen well, have basic skills across the boat, love the bow, don't need a lot of sleep, hold a smile under pressure. I also have my Wilderness EMT license, mostly for ice climbing in the winter, but I think it would be handy for any boat crew. I am looking for a good crew, that is serious about racing, but doesn't take themselves too seriously. I prefer a Saturday start, but have done cruiser and found it fun as well. Thank you for your consideration!!! You will not be disappointed. :)

I was raised in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin and learned to sail there and on Green Bay and Lake Michigan. As a teenager I helped my father with boat deliveries from Holland MI to Sturgeon Bay for the local yacht harbor and from DB to Chicago. As a family we were members of the Great Lakes Cruising Club traveling over 5,000 miles on the Great Lakes in a variety of boats including a Grand Banks 42, Bertram 35 and Westsail 32. I have been on Green Bay when with winds exceeding 50 knots and have torn down and repaired a marine head while underway (don't ask). I also taught sailing for the SB Sail Training Foundation instructing over 200 kids and adult each summer in Prams, Flying Terns, Flying Scots and 470's. This also allowed be to crew for a number of boat in local off shore race around Green Bay. In the past I have actively raced in Thistles, 470's, Laser's and a was vary successful in-shore and off-sore with a Cape Dory Typhoon (PHRF). I spent 9 years as Curator of the Penobscot Marine Museum in Maine. Was the Executive Director of the Working Waterfront Museum and now consult to maritime museums nationally. I currently serve on the Communications Committee for the Lower Columbia River Harbor Safety Committee.

Seeking to crew on Mac. Just learned the Mac boat I was on has problems and is withdrawing. Sailing experience over 30 years. Long time active weekend racer. Last 2 years, Mac crew on Beneteau 36.7 (spinn trim/jib trim), and classic Morgan 36T (main trim, jib trim). Safety course certified 2015. Good team player. Lake Michigan Racing Experience: early years on Soling 27, more recently Catalina 32, T-10, Olson 34, Morgan 36T. I've owned 4 boats, plus 2015 yacht lease C&C110 (cruising), but I become a better sailor crewing with different skippers. Friendly and fun personality. In addition to the Mac, I race the NOODS, North American NAC, Verve, Hobelman, Tri-State, Michigan City and back, Colors, Waukegan, this year adding Larsen Marine PHRF, plus whatever weekend and occasional beer cans I can add. Really bummed that last year's Mac boat can't go. Can you help?

Race to Mackinac, Cruising, Team Racing, Team Chicago Yacht Club

I've grown up in a sailing family and have spent a lot of time sailing my Force 5 in Georgia and on the Gulf of Mexico. I've also spent time on my father's S2 8.0 and have experience solo sailing that as well. I'm a grunt and am more than willing to work and help out on the boat in any way I can and would jump at any opportunity to sail on the Great Lakes.

Primarily a one design sailor with many years of experience. Raced my own J24 out of Wilmette for several years many years ago. I have done a couple of long distance races with the Tarten 10 class. Most recent experience is on J105 and T10. Can man any position, but probably best suited for spinnaker trimmer or ballast. Looking for one more season while I can on a boat that wants to have fun and win a few races.Would love to do a Mac and might be available for the return trip.

Hello. I sail out of Belmont with my wife and 10 year old daughter. Would like to gain experience crewing in the Mac race in anticipation of participating on my boat as my daughter matures and improves her skills. Also a pretty damned good cook and food prepper on the water.

I am currently a Freshman studying at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. I grew up in Chicago and will be spending this summer back home, so I would love to get in a lot of time on the water and work on my skills. I started sailing when I was 10 and spent a lot of time sailing in Macatawa, Michigan every summer. I then raced small boats competitively on the Loyola Academy high school sailing team out of Sheridan Shore Yacht Club. I got my US Level 1 Small Boat instructor certification last summer and I worked as a sailing instructor at Lake Forest Sailing. I recently started sailing with a small, budding sailing club at GW and am a volunteer small boat instructor for a local sailing program called DC Sail. I have had an extensive amount of competitive small boat racing experience, but I would love to gain more experience crewing on keel boats. I do not have much keel boat experience, but I am young and a pretty quick learner with a little bit of effort. I am interested in crewing for Wednesday night racing, offshore racing, and if possible I would love to get on a boat for the Mac race this year!

I recently moved to Chicago from Odessa, Ukraine, on the Black Sea. My native language is Russian, but my English is improving. I have 20+ years experience as the captain of a 29 foot offshore racing yacht, as well as currently captaining a Dufour 30 Classic. I have sailed solo across the Black Sea numerous times. My longest solo trip began on the west coast of Greece, in the Ionian Sea, through the Aegean Sea, and finally through the Black Sea to Odessa. I love sailing and would like to become involved with cruising in Chicago!

36' Gulfstar

Frostbiting, Racing Yacht Fleet (One Design Racing), Wednesday night Beer Can racing, Offshore Racing - NOOD, Verve, etc, Race to Mackinac, Traveling program, Cruising, Team Racing, Team Chicago Yacht Club

I grew up spending my summers on my grandparent's boat in Wilmette Harbor. They had a 36' Gulfstar which they'd use to circumnavigate lake Michigan every summer, and I was fortunate to join them on a couple of occasions. It's been a few years since they've passed, their interest was sold to their partner, and I've only recently learned of the Beer Cans. I have a racing background (autos), I'm competitive, am fit, and am a quick study. I'd love the opportunity to get back on the water in a crew capacity and compete for wins.

I do not understand ISAF Classification!! In the 60s, during my teens I sailed for a few summers in a youth program in Zurich Switzerland on O-Jolle, Vaurien, Flying Dutchman, Star Boat and 5.5m. I have been and still am a member of the Zürcher Yacht Club in Zurich, Switzerland. I came to the US in 1973 and did almost no sailing anymore except for a race week on Soling at Steve Colgate’s on Captiva, where Buddy Melges and the late Tom Blackaller were coaches. I also had a Soling for a season at the Belmont dry dock. Four years ago I reenergized my sailing by taking ASA courses, (101 and 103, then105 Navigation, 106 Advanced Coastal Sailing, 107 Celestial Navigation, 108 Offshore Sailing). These courses involved a “Delmarva”, two trips to St. Thomas, one from Ft. Lauderdale, one from Norfolk, and a trip from St. Petersburg to Key West, the latter as captain as prerequisite to ASA 108. I also sailed each year for the last four years a week in the Caribbean, this past January off Raiatea/Tahiti. I would love to sail with anyone needing a crew.

Hello, My name is Matt Wishnoff. I am 24 years old, 6’0”, 175lbs, and a former college athlete. I am US Level 1 teaching certified and am trained in CPR. I have a wide range of sailing skills, but am most interested in kite trimming, pit, and foredeck. I have crewed in several NOOD, Verves, and Mac races on everything from J105s and Beneteau 36.7s, to a Judel/Vrolijk 66. I am currently enrolled in an EMT course so I am unable to sail on Monday and Wednesday nights, but am free on weekends and all other weeknights. I know it is last minute, but I am particularly interested sailing the Mac. Thank you for considering my qualifications and I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Matt

I learned to sail in the SF Bay Area. I have the basic certification for dinghys (US Sail) and keel boats (ASA). I have some experience crewing for keel boat races in SF (no spinnaker). But I haven't sailed in 1.5 years because of work travel and moving to Chicago. So I'd need a quick refresher, but I'm eager to start up again. I enjoy friendly races, but I don't want to be on a super-competitive/aggressive boat.

Hello, My name is Bill Kenny and I am looking to join an Etchells racing crew for the summer. I have taken sailing lessons previously, and also have some experience sailing on Lake Michigan on an Oday sailboat with some friends. I am very interested in learning how to race sailboats. What I lack in experience I will make up for with a strong desire to learn, a positive attitude, and commitment. Thanks!

Similar to many others, my sailing experience began on the ubiquitous "Opti" and subsequently progressed to Laser racing. With this background, I have since participated in three Chicago-Mackinac races (2010, 2012 and 2013), and my relocation to Chicago has offered me the opportunity to compete with the T-10 fleet during the previous two seasons. I am 27 and work in private equity, which limits my time available during the week. That being said, I hope to make several Wednesday race nights, and should, largely, be available during the weekends.

We are a fun, competitive boat (specially in windy years). Typically race the Queen's Cup, the Mac, Verve, and Sheldon Clark. In previous years we have finished 5th in our group in Queens cup, 3rd in Verve Cruising Div., 1st Sheldon Clark Distance Cruising Div. In the Mac so far we have finished middle of our group. Will 2015 be the year we win it? For those not familiar with the Cruising Division. We race hard, but only have main, genoa in roller furler, and two A-Symmetric spinnakers. In other words, no sail changes, just good trimming, good driving, and good navigation. We have a expresso machine, use the head as opposed to a bucket, and eat great food. My philosophy in order of priorities is: 1) Crew Safety 2) Boat and Equipment safety 3) Winning races while having fun. Albatross is a Dufour 40, a cruiser racer built in Europe in 2005. She has comfortable accommodations and it's a very safe and dry boat. She is particularly good in stronger winds, and somewhat slower in light winds. She is very well equipped, including life raft, 2x EPIRBs, and all necessary safety equipment.
