Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Elmhurst, IL, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America;
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 2500 coastal miles
I started crewing/racing in Chicago on an S2 9.1, Kahuna, Captain Loren Thompson. Loren suggested I join a sailing club to learn how to sail a boat on top of me learning crew positions on his boat. I am a Rhodes 19 & Colgate 26 skipper on top of my main crew positions of jib & spinnaker trim and pit. I have completed 3 Hook races on the S2 9.1, Kahuna. I have competed in 6 Mac races on the S2 9.1, Kahuna, & a Peterson 34, Cahoots. Never completed the MAC on the S2 9.1 but completed all 3 Mac races on the Peterson 34. I am looking forward to doing a Caribbean 1500.
