I was a sailing instructor when younger for several summer seasons. These boats we’re Flying Juniors, about 18 feet in length. The sailing club had about a dozen boats that were used for my classes. I also sailed every summer day from about the age of 8-18. So I know how to sail! For the past 3 years, I have sailed my Catalina 34 throughout the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound. My yacht is moored in Tseheum Harbour. The combined experience of sailing dinghies and yachts has given me excellent foundation to support your team.

Was in Swiftsure in 2019. Ive been a crew and coxswain for RCMSAR 35 Victoria for the past 7.5 years. I have extensive knowledge of navigation, boat maintenance, first aid ( Marine Advance First Aid, First Responder with EMA Licensing) I am always working to get better at sailing like most are but I’d say I’m above beginner but not yet advanced. A race life this would probably help tip the scale for me. I am an avid Cook which I’ve built my professional life around, not as a cook but I own N ingredients company. I love the outdoors and pride myself with the ability to be versatile and can adapt to most situations.

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 love sailing, racing, and being at sea! I've recently joined the Royal Canadian Navy reserves as a Naval Warfare Officer. I've sailed over thirteen years on many different boats racing on west coast and Lk Ontario: winter series (polar bear, hot rum), summer weekday (VARC), Deep Cove, Howe Sound, Round Bowen, Fraser Lightship, Southern Straights. I was on a crew for the 2020 race before it was cancelled. I've also sailed coastal and open water passages (Caribbean and Atlantic) up to 25 days (2700nm) at sea, logging well over 5000nm. I'm comfortable working shifts with a team and cooking. For qualifications, I have CANSail 3, Sail Canada Basic Cruising, Intermediate Navigation, Offshore Personal Survival (SAS), PCOC, ROC-M, and Wilderness First Aid. I've worked as a Sport Coach and Kinesiologist with excellent fitness. I also work as a Paramedic in EMS, so I can serve as boat medic as needed. I'm happy working at the mast, in the pit, trimming jib, or some foredeck (spinnaker or asymmetrical). I've been in team environments throughout my career. I hope to work with a competitive crew, and will make myself available for practice on a set schedule and willing to take courses as needed to support the boat. I can make weekends for Southern Straits, Swiftsure, or other preliminary races available. I would sail the race leg preferably, but can also crew for the return.

I have been on the water since birth. I have been on open ocean and am very experienced on the water . My family is a sailing /yachting family few generations deep!! Member of RVYC since 1992 at 10 years old which point was junior sailing through the junior program in summers. I have what I think is very good instinct and have always been trusted in the ocean. I have very good references of trusted people and would be a great addition to a team that is looking for easy going guy that’s physically strong athletic and very mobile. No handicap other than I recently gained bit of weight. I’m at 6 ft 220 lbs not sure if that matters but thought good info for skipper . I am in good health and ready to go!! Would be nice to have a little notice but could literally go on couple days notice if a last minute replacement was required. I can honestly say I just want to sail to Hawaii and do what is told on the whole trip! (Not over step) my deal is I trust those I respect and give the same in return

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.

Thousands of miles cruising the Salish Sea, Solent, Hebrides, Chesapeake & offshore, Great Lakes & St. Lawrence, mostly on my own boat or charter. Racing experience includes the Van Isle 360, Southern Straits, Swiftsure, SOAR, Anvil Island, Round Bowen, Bird Island (Australia). Able to help in any position, but more of a generalist than a specialist. EPA Standard First Aid & Level C CPR. BC Sailing Offshore Personal Survival/Safety at Sea. ICC, VHF, PCOC, multiple RYA & ASA certs. Very capable "fixer". I'm happy to take on any role and willing to race competitively or just for fun. Ideally I'd like to hook up with a crew that's regularly racing offshore but I'm also happy to fill in for just the one race.

Kind of a rookie. I worked as a crew crossing the north pacific a few years ago- my first time sailing! I have since acquired a 30’ c&c and sail it around the gulf islands. I also crew on a express 37’ out of the Nanaimo Yacht Club most weekends. I’m registered for the safety at sea course. I can learn quick, work hard and have fun too. Hoping to join a supportive and contentious crew. I’m an ER nurse and live in Tofino currently, but am flexible with my schedule and very committed to training meet ups and passage preparation. Thanks for considering me, hope to connect soon!
