      Comments:  Having recently moved to Chicago, I am eager for opportunities to get out on the water. Having grown up racing Lasers, 420's, Hobbie 16s, and a variety of other boats, I have years of sailing experience and knowledge and feel comfortable filling any position on a boat, though my recent experience has been working fore-deck and spinnaker trimmer positions on a Crowther 33 (trimaran) prior to moving. I work easily within a team, and I can learn any boat quickly. 
       

      I've been been around sailing over 40 years, but always on swimsuit boats (Butterfly, Hobie Cat, etc.) and can sail very well on my own. Last year was my first year on a "Big Boat". I was on a Benetau 36.7 and mostly worked the Main and Jib, though I also handled the Helm for a portion of the overnight to Racine and did some time on the Spinnaker too. I'm willing to learn all other positions.

      Look to race in the Mac. I'm a level 2 certified instructor. I have been on lots of big boats but I haven't perfected any skill yet. Learn pretty quickly.
