Hi, I am an experienced sailor who has raced primarily in Lake Ontario in long distance and around the cans races. I have grown up sailing and have taught basic and intermediate keelboat sailing levels in Canada for many years. I am here in Chicago on contract for the next few years and looking to get out on the water for weeknight racing and weekend regatta’s. I integrate well into any crew and work hard. I am a happy positive person, and a good sailor. I work with my crewmates instead of dictating to people. Everyone has an experience that you can learn from, and always listen to others on the boat. I like to race competitively but having fun is a higher priority.

Race to Mackinac

Hi, I am an advanced sailor who races locally and nationally all year round. I can successfully back up any position on a boat. I integrate well into any crew and I work hard. I am a happy positive person. I am a good sailor, but not a pro or a VIP. I don’t step on other people’s toes and work with my crewmates instead of dictating to people. I listen to others. Everyone has an experience that you can learn from. I communicate facts and pertinent information regularly, and opinions only when asked. My philosophy on racing is that I like to be competitive, but I have to have fun too. My philosophy about other people’s boats is that they know how they like it done best and there really aren’t many “wrong” ways to do something, just “preferences” and I can adapt to anyone’s preference. I completed my International Offshore Safety at Sea w/ Hands-on training on March 25, 2018. I live in Seattle and am flying back to Chicago for the race. I will provide my own transportation to and from the race.

Currently living on Mackinac Island and desperately need something to do on Wednesday nights. I was part of the return crew for Tequila Mockingbird after the Chicago Mac race. We brought it back to Chicago. The first day was Mackinac to Frankfort, the next day we crossed to Sheboygan, the day after down to Milwaukee, and the last day we arrived in Chicago. I will be doing the same delivery again this year for the owner, but I'd like more opportunities in the meantime, I've been itching to get back on the water.

I have been racing with various yacht clubs throughout West Michigan over the past 5 years. I attended sailing school in Nortthport,MI where I raced lasers. Currently I am the fleet captain of the Western Michigan University Sailing Team. We compete on 420 dinghies. I have owned various sailboats over the years and currently own a 22ft cruiser that I sail out of South Haven, MI. I am looking to take my sailing to the next level and gain some over night sailing experience as well as develop my skills on various positions around the boat. I have experience racing at the helm, in the pit and trimming. Call, text, or email.

I have done multiple Chicago Macs, Queens Cups, and Bermuda Crossings including the Newport. I also have done the TransPac, the San Diego Puerto Vallarta race, the SoCal 300, as well as a host of NOODs, Verves, and North Americans. I have a full sailing resume available upon request.

Last summer I took ASA 101 - Basic Keelboat and ASA 103 - Basic Coastal Cruising at Monroe harbor. I'm looking to get more experience in all positions with the goal of being able to take a boat solo. Getting wet and working hard doing all the "beginner" stuff is fine with me. Looking for a boat/crew where I'm getting more skills and learning to be a better sailor. I grew up in Michigan working on a farm and now live in the city - so I like doing new things and meeting new people.

Race to Mackinac

I grew up in Michigan and was a ski racer/coach before I moved to San Francisco six years ago and took up sailboat racing. Since then I've sailed the Transpac (SC50) three Chicago Macs (Dehler 39), a PH to Mac (1D35), a ton of NorCal coastal stuff on a variety of sporty/big boats (C&C 30, Shock 40, etc), and six Rolex Big Boat Series, twice second on my current Farr 40. On the Farr 40, I'm the primary spinnaker trimmer and offside upwind trim. I'm also very comfortable with pit on both asym and sym rigged boats, spent a big chunk of time on the helm on the Transpac, and have no problem to head up to the bow in the middle of the night for a peel (or whatever). I have a current Safety at Sea certificate. I'd like to do another R2M, ideally on a super competitive boat/crew with a group of friendly people. I like to go fast, but I also like to have fun! References are available upon request.

This is my 6th year sailing. Second competitively. By the summer time, I'll be 16. I'm a young and eager sailor looking for anybody to take me on their boat. I've been sailing for my high school team at CYC for two years now. I started off as a fledgeling little sailor on a Sonar, learned how to race, and am now sailing for my school's varsity team, New Trier Sailing. We competed at a national level this season at Atlantic Coast Championships. I've also been successful at local and regional high school regattas, finishing 4th at Kickoff Classic and 5th at Shepherd Championship. I want to expand my career by sailing on bigger boats with more experienced people, and I am always willing to grab hold of a new opportunity. I would make a great bowman because I'm light, energetic, quick, and strong. I have some tactical knowledge and am willing to learn other positions as well. I can sail Wednesday's starting in the summer but otherwise I can do anything else. My main goal for the summer is to sail the Mac, so please help me achieve it. You won't regret choosing me as your bowman.

Race to Mackinac

No racing experience. Longest trip to date has been Miami to Bimini & back. 26’ sloop did not sink and nobody got hurt. I am definitely not a ringer but I understand the importance of teamwork and chemistry. If you are scraping the bottom of the barrel and need a warm body who will simply do his job then I might be worth consideration.

In 2012, I crewed a 39’ Parson on a delivery from Bermuda to Newport, RI (post-Newport-Bermuda Race 2012) (660 NM). I have also completed ASA 101, 103, 104, 105, 106, & 107 certifications. I am Senior Vice President for an information management company in Fairfax, VA. A retired US Army lieutenant colonel, I served for over 22 years as an infantryman and military strategist in various command and staff positions in the White House, US Central Command, Department of the Army, and the 82d Airborne and 3d Infantry Divisions.

Radiance is a competitive racer that is preparing to embark on her 19th Chgo Mac and seeking a foredeck person. We fly a symmetric and asymmetric chute utilizing a sprit and an oversize carbon pole. For me, the Mac race (and sailboat racing in general) is about being competitive with a team of sailors that care about each other and have a strong desire to have fun. Radiance is located in Montrose Harbor.

Offshore Racing - NOOD, Verve, etc, Race to Mackinac

Looking for two Chicago-based additional crew members intermediate/advanced experience. This will be Albatross' 10th Mac race. We race in the cruising division, which is the largest division in the Chicago-Mac. We are a fun, competitive boat. Typically race the Queen's Cup, the Mac, Verve, and Sheldon Clark. In previous years we have finished won 3 flags in Queens cup, finished 3rd in Verve Cruising Div., 1st Sheldon Clark Distance Cruising Div. In the Mac so far we have finished middle of our group. Will 2018 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 asymmetric spinnakers. In other words, no sail changes, just good trimming, good driving, and good navigation. We have two expresso machines, use the head as opposed to a bucket, and eat gourmet food. My philosophy in order of priority is: 1) Crew Safety 2) Boat and Equipment safety 3) Winning races while having fun. Albatross is a brand new Solaris One 42, a forty footer we just sailed over the winter from Venice, Italy, to the Venice of Florida (West Palm Beach). She has comfortable accommodations and it's a very safe and dry boat. She is very well equipped, including life raft, 2x EPIRBs, and all necessary safety equipment. We just got new North 3di sails.

We've lost our mastman; the SOB moved to LA to pursue his dream job. Do you enjoy burning out your arms in the thankless position of mast? Then boy do I have an offer for you! Bonus points if you've got twinkle toes, because I'll train you as our backup bow. You'll be joining a super competitive program with loads of podium finishes and a very solid team. With the exception of the aforementioned SOB, every single crew member is returning from last year. (Probably because my crew management skills are on point!) Anyhow, looking forward to hearing from you.
