ISAF Classification Category 1

Ex-ISAF Class 3, but now legal Class 1. Experienced Watch Captain. Will join as crew on right team as well. Fast. Safe. Makes a team stay focused throughout the race. Uses all kinds of motivational strategies to ensure that the human element performs to their maximum capability throughout the race. My Ph.D. focused on aspects related to this topic combined with blue water experience in leadership roles makes me effective. Crossed the stream eight times (four times as Watch Captain). Excellent helmsman. Raced on many types of sailing vessels from windsurfers to maxis, so I get sail trim, spinnaker peels, ideal sail plans, and making race boats go fast. Campaign my own star boat at times, so get all the boat-to-boat tactics. Fun on land. I would possibly be honored to race as part of your serious off-shore race program. Full sailing c. v. and references available upon further discussion.
