Pick only one of these four words: Skipper (you will take people out in your boat), Crew (you have experience), Novice (willing to learn), or Fun (not interested in learning).


For non-skippers, describe your boating experience in order to assist skippers in choosing their crew. For skippers, explain your expectations from people on your boat.

Mostly a Main sail trimmer for the swiftsure and Vanisle 360. I was on Turicum in 2011 (44 C&C)I can work the main sail well. I can make a boat go on a breath of wind. I have relentless focus on my sail and stay on task when the going gets tough. I continue to move the sail to find the sweet spot. I don't give up until we break static and move. After that I go for the speed.

List the boating activities that interest you (learning, teaching, recounting my travels, casual sailing, sailing races, motoring, overnight trips, long-range trips, etc.).

I am not so competitive that I get emotional I have a healthy respect for the sea and a desire to go back . Two weeks on my 21 foot sloop on the Okanogan. I have crewed on the Okanogan as well on a Santana 35, plus on others from san juan 21's to the balboa 26. I am a main sail trimmer and not much good at other positions as I have some rotator cuff shoulder issues

Tell us about your boat if you have one (type, size, name, home port) or answer "none" otherwise.

I am in land locked Calgary Alberta, and have a 21 ft sloop it is a spirit 6.5 with the name "Snooze Button". I can work the main sail well. I can make a boat go on a breath of wind. I have relentless focus on my sail and stay on task when the going gets tough. I would go to the ends of the earth with a good skipper.


5'8" slim well built & fit at 193 lbs and a 50yo vintage I am in Calgary Alberta have a 21 ft sloop 12 years exp fresh water lakes. During 2011 swiftsure race and the Vanisle 360 all legs crew on a 44 C&C. Main Sail Trimmer
