I have sailed yachts offshore for about one month overall, mostly a number of years ago in training courses with Victoria Sailing Academy. Experienced with all the basics and all points of sail, but not realistically ready to be on a race crew yet … a prairie landlubber pining for blue-water sailing. :)

I own a Cal 39 at the Vancouver Rowing Club and race it in their Polar Bear series. Caught the water bug as a teenager and have since sailed Australia, Indonesia, across the British channel, Greece, and this year, Turkey. Locally, I circumnavigated Vancouver Island twice and explored the Queen Charlottes in my own boat. In excellent health, I hope to join you on the race or return.

Born and raised in Victoria and have spent many years boating but sailing is rather new to me. I would like to gain some experience sailing offshore and this seems the perfect way to do it. I currently have a competent crew and dayskipper ticket from ISPA and take my Laguna Windrose out on the local lakes as often as I can. As I live far from Victoria it could be difficult to be available for any practice trials so perhaps I'm not the perfect choice for the actual race, but the return trip would be of equal interest to me..........I am however available for the two way trip if thats what you are looking for.

Sailing Experience: I started sailing with my father from a young age on a 32' Catalina; many trips in and about the Gulf Islands between Campbell River and the San Juan Islands. After a prolonged lull, I've returned to the sport and have since been honing my skills at the UBC Sailing Club on various catamarans and skiffs. I'm a keen and eager learner and I intend to continue with formal sailing training. I'm very easy to get along with and would consider myself a 'people' person. But don't let me tell you, check out my 'couchsurfing' profile (online travelling social media network) and see the 30+ positive references I have from people around the world.[https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/1011014/profile/legacy] My formal training started at the UBC Sailing Club last year (March 2014) and I will be training again summer 2015 to improve my sailing skills. I've completed the following lessons: Advanced I (CYA Bronze V equivalent), Intermediate ( CYA White Sail III equivalent), Beginner (CYA White Sail II equivalent) and UBC Catamaran Lesson. Boats I have sailed and/or crewed include, 32' Catalina, Flying Juniors, Lasers, Vanguards, RS500s, Hobie 16s, F18 Nacra Infusion Catamaran and various other power boats. If you would like to know more about myself or get to know me better, feel free to call or email and I'd be happy to chat. Cheers, -Yooji

Hi Vic-Maui Sailors, My name is Maggie, and I would love to race with you! I have been sailing and racing since I was a kid. As a teenager I was a member of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club race team, and I won a few Commodore's Cups in my time. As an adult I have been racing in in-bay series regularly. I race a Martin 242 on Wednesday nights, and I race on a J70 on weekends. I am typically on jib/foredeck/spin trim, but I can work in all positions just fine. I was part of a team of women racing J70s in the International Women's Keelboat Championship in 2016 and we placed 5th. We are hoping to go back in 2017 to get 1st! I also have some cruising experience, and have skipped trips up the sunshine cost on a Martin 242. I'm quite fit, strong stomached, and not a complainer. I am strong, capable, and competitive - I'd love to come race with you!

I definitely fall into the novice section. I own a 36ft sailboat locally which I use regularly both crewed and solo. I'm capable on ship's systems (diesel, electronics, cooling, plumbing, ect.) in addition to having some high end kitchen experience :) I have a single ASA 101 cert, but I'm an extremely fast learner and mostly self-taught. ON the personality side I'm a very laid back, team oriented individual that can fill both subordinate and leadership roles. I have excellent troubleshooting skills and handle stressful situations methodically. I also bring a moderate amount of emergency medical training (inner-city and industrial EMT for 8 years, combat lifesaver, wilderness first aid) in addition to excellent navigation skills, although not with celestial. Professionally I'm a lead security engineer for a major outdoor company with a background in military psychological operations. Outside of work I sail a lot! I also spend a good deal of time backcountry skiing, roaming around the alpine areas of Mt. Rainier on solo and team overnight trips, and thinking up interesting expedition ideas. Overall I'm pretty good in a crisis, can handle extended periods in hazardous environments, and like to get folks laughing when morale is tanking. I'm also fully willing to work with a local crew over the next year to get dialed in! More than happy to put in the work. My main goal is to gain offshore experience on the legs between Maui and BC. Lastly, I'm more than willing to cover my own expenses, flights, and lodging.

Hi. I am a friendly, polite, steady, useful, experienced sailor. My wife and I owned and raced a C&C Paceship 23 for years and did well. We now own another C&C designed boat - a Newport 27. I've enjoyed racing locally for 20 years and still love being with focused sailors who are determined to make their boat go faster, longer, safer, with style and grace. I've spent much of my adult years mountaineering and cycling, so I know about discomfort and suffering to reach a reasonable goal. No baggage, no drama. Reliable and solid crew member on the boat for, and with, the crew. Able and willing to pay my way and do my part. Would truly love to sail this race with a great crew and boat.

As the curator of the Museum of Sail I have been in, on and under many boats for well over 30 years. The Museum's motto, Rescue, Restore, Release, means I have done most everything in terms of maintenance, repair and 'rehoming' of sailboats. I currently reside on Maui and would be most interested in racing home. I could be induced to help you return your boat to the great Pacific Northwest. A ride both ways is actually preferred. I have experience at offshore and inshore racing and once owned and cruised a 38' catamaran in the lower Caribbean. I am also a great cook and my preferred utensil is the wok.

I live on Vancouver Island and would be available for training and willing to take any courses necessary or recommended. Would probably be more suited for a return trip. However, I am willing to invest my time training and learning and understand that I would have to earn a place on board. Even if I do not make it on as a crew member, any time spent will make me a better Mariner. I am competitive and relentlessly positive. Mostly, I love the Sea and the freedom and the challenge and long to take things to the next level. I am fit at 6\\\\\\\' and 185 lbs.

Experienced OCEAN WARRIOR that will clean the head. I have completed two Vic-Maui Races, 2010 and 2012 and love the offshore racing experience, especially surfing at 18 knots!! I am a very experienced sailor having raced one designs and competed in recent Laser Masters Worlds in 2009 and 2014. One thing experience has taught me is that the best qualities of great offshore sailors is being a team player, perseverance, while being competitive. The Ocean is a tough place so being positive and a moral boost is important as well. Preparation is key so I have all my offshore training completed and up to date. I am often described as a “Jack-of-all-Trades” and willing to do any task or position on the boat, and I love trimming and having the gas pedal in my hands. And I also realize that preparing food and cleaning the head is a necessary chore to living aboard. I am looking for a competitive ride, best of luck to everyone and looking for to a big ALOHA!! on the other side. Resume available on request. Terry.

What I lack in experience I make up for with enthusiastic, quick-to-learn attitude. I am fit and prepared to take on any task assigned to me. I have experience with producing videos and would be happy to document the journey, with my own camera gear.

I have owned and a 35+’ sailboat since the mid 80’s. My homeport have been Seward Alaska. From Seward we have sailed throughout Prince William Sound, southern coast and fiords of the Kenai Peninsula. Brought my current boat to Alaska from Anacortes via the inside passage. I have had several overnight passages but would love to make the Vic to Maui to see if blue water cruising is for me. My current boat is an older but well-founded Esprit37.

Being brought up in New Zealand sailing from seven years old I now have 36 years of racing and cruising experience in all positions on boats from dinghies to 90ft classic sloops, including skippering Maiden in Antigua. I am both an easy going and competitive sailor having raced and delivered boats in many locations including New Zealand, England, Ireland, France, The Caribbean and now Vancouver. Races include both inshore and offshore including two Fastnet (2007 & 2009) and multiple (both day and overnight) races across the English Channel to France. This year, 2015 my focus is the VanIsle 360 and the Farr 30 Worlds. In 2016 the focus will be Vic Maui. Being qualified as a Yachtmaster (both the NZ Coastguard Yacht Master and the RYA Yachtmaster Offshore) I bring significant experience and skills to the team. Typically I tend to be primary trim, helm, tactician or navigator, however I easily do any position from bow to stern. If you are interested in adding me to your crew for Vic Maui 2016 then please contact me by email carrickwoodfield@hotmail.com or phone and I can provide further information where required.
