How would you describe your sailing experience? At the end of your description include a title for yourself (look at other profiles, or the about page for ideas)

I grew up racing dinghies on a small lake near St. Louis, MO. Then, I raced collegiately on Lake Michigan & small lakes around the midwest with trips to the East Coast. After college I got into bigger boats around Milwaukee, WI. Versatile race crew.

What type boats have you sailed on - or dream of sailing on? What sort of sailing do you do? Cruising, racing, beercans, YRA . . . Transpac??

I love racing! Experience on a variety of boats: Laser, 420, Snipe, Lightning, Thistle, Y-flyer, E-Scow, San Juan 21, J-24, J-105, Tartan 10, C&C41, Mumm36 Lots of course racing, a handful of short distance races on Lake Michigan, & a few Mac Races

If you are a private boat owner -- please describe your vessel in as much detail as you can.


Do you have any US sailing or ASA certificates? Do you bareboat charter?


Are you disabled or have limited mobility? You'll be welcomed, but it's very important for skippers to know ahead of time to keep everyone safe while sailing (you included).



Hi, I'm Chris Stahl, I just moved to Santa Clara in July. The past year my wife and I were in Kenya (Africa) volunteering, and before that lived near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I raced on Lake Michigan a lot, and miss sailing tremendously.
