In 2015 I campaigned an Etchells in the UK winning the Bedrock trophy as a helmsman, I also competed in the Biscayne Bay Miami series in both bow and main trim positions. I am keen and dedicated sailor who is easy to get along with. I am 183 cm and weigh 73 kgs I regularly compete in triathlons so I am fit. I am British, currently living and working in Trinidad and the Caribbean, I am willing and can easily get to Chicago for this regatta.

      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.
