I was signed up as crew for the 2021 Transpac but the boat wasn't ready. I have a fair bit of sailing experience but not much racing, especially off shore. I just retired as an orthopaedic surgeon and so bring some medical skills along.

Hello, I began sailboat racing in 2016. I love the camaraderie of the sport and have been lucky enough to sail with some great people over the last 4 years. In 2017 I sailed back from Hawaii and since then I have been trying to get back into the open ocean. I am looking to crew both during the race and return ideally and because I’m self employed I can make myself fully available for any training / race schedule. I am confident I would be a valuable addition to any team. Thank you.

3.5 years ago I completed Salty Sisters * 2 in 420s at Royal Victoria Yacht Club, followed by Intro to Keel Boating. Since then I have been racing weekly - as COVID has allowed - on a Peterson 30. I have completed RYA Competent Crew Practical, RYA Day Skipper Theory, ROC(M), PCOC, and will complete RYA Day Skipper Practical in July 2021. My intention is to work towards RYA Coastal Skipper. I'm aware that I cannot compete with those who have thousands of nautical miles under their keels; however, I am enthusiastic, have a positive attitude, take direction and constructive criticism well, have a flexible time schedule, and am very willing to take further preparation courses. I'm a Surgical Daycare nurse, therefore can offer that skill-set as needed.

I raced on many different boats since 2009 - winter series (polar bear, hot rum), summer weekday (VARC), Deep Cove, Howe Sound, Round Bowen, Fraser Lightship, Southern Straights. I work daily in a gym so I'm super fit, and I'm a specialist in injury rehab. In Spring 2021 I am in process of joining Canadian Navy. I am able happy working at the mast, in the pit, trimming jib, and some foredeck with spinnaker or asymmetrical. I was on a crew for the 2020 race before it was cancelled. I will like to work with a competitive crew, and will make myself available for practice on a set schedule. I have Offshore Survival training and willing to take courses as needed to support the boat. I have weekends for Southern Straits and Swiftsure available. I would sail the race leg preferably but could also crew for the return.

I've been cruising the coastal waters of BC and Washington on my own boat for 10 years: 7 years on a Fortune 30(heavy displacement, cutter rig), and the past 3 years on a Seabird 37(heavy displacement, ketch rig). I have circumnavigated Vancouver Island, and sailed as far north as Bella Bella. I don't have any experience on the open ocean, which is my main motivation for wanting to participate in this event: to gain experience and to learn from others who have done it.

Hornby Island, BC Canada 41 (250)650-3170 Send Email
Born and raised on the coast, been on the ocean my whole life. Owned three sailboats. In my late 20’s a Catalina 27 that I sailed extensively in Georgia Straight. More recently my wife and I bought a well-found Contessa 26, which I sailed the jib sheets off in all seasons, all weather, and at night. It was with this boat that I truly learned to sail. We took some instruction, but most of my experience was singlehanded. This year we bought a gorgeous Crealock 34, and have been sailing her extensively. As we run an active ecological farm, my main sailing season has been Oct-April. I cannot wait to cruise and sail all fall and winter. My dream is to join an offshore race boat and contribute my fitness, knowledge, and passion. I’ve completed some training and will be completing more this fall/winter. I know nobody as passionate and committed to sailing as I am. If I’m not sailing, I’m reading about it. I will make a very strong addition to any boat’s crew.
