Do you have a boat or are you interested in becoming crew on somone's boat?

Yes. A Morgan 30' that I refitted from scratch after buying it on Ebay as only a hull. I've sailed her to Nantucket and back.

New York Sailing Club

What, if any professional maritime associations are you involved with.

None, though I worked on a shark boat for 5 years.

What type of sailing do you like to do?

I love cruising and meeting friends for events on the boats. I do some racing occasionally.

Tell us about your sailing experience.

I have a Morgan 30 now. I took lessons when I was 10 years old. A few years ago I circumnavigated Long Island singlehanded on the 22 Ft. McGregor. Have sailed up the Hudson River many times. I have done most of the New England Coast.

Introduction

Hello, My name is Chris. I have been sailing since I was 10 years old. I grew up on Long Island and raced our family Blue Jay, a 17 foot Whitney. I have owned a 22 Ft. McGregor Venture and then moved up to a Morgan 30' I refitted over 6 months.

What Chris is saying about this Meetup Group

I love this meetup group, even though I have to organize it! :) The Urban Squall Sailing Club is a great place to get involved with the wonderful world of of sailing while learning or teaching. It is a place for people to meet and either attend our activities or create them with those you meet in the group. We bring boat owners together with crew while having fun on and off the water!
