I have over 7000 miles of blue water sailing experience. I have raced in three Bermuda races. The first year, in 2010, I sailed on a modified J-120, Avra. The second year, 2012, I was crew on a custom 60′ boat called Mischievous. In the 2014 race, I sailed aboard a Shipman 63′, called Hassebas.
I am a founding member of the Varsity College of Charleston Offshore Sailing Team. I have been the skipper since its beginning, and among some successful and notable regattas, we were the 2014 National Keelboat Champs at Navy’s Kennedy Cup.
In the last couple of years, I have sailed on the Cool Breeze program, a Mills 43 IRC racer from Connecticut. I delivered her from Charleston to Key West and Charleston to Connecticut. I also raced on her in the 2015 Charleston Race Week, 2015 Block Island Race Week, 2015 IRC East Coast Championship and 2014 Annapolis Fall Regatta.
In 2012, I crewed aboard a custom Reichel Pugh 60′ called Reef Points (formerly Pyewacket). I helped deliver her from Charleston to Annapolis in the spring, and raced aboard her in the 2014 NYYC Invitational.
I have done a lot of sailing in between- lots of small boat and keel boat racing mainly in Charleston, SC, and where I grew up, Mystic, CT. One design boats I’ve raced in include Shields, IODs, F18s, Thistles, Lightnings, Lasers, ID35, Melges 32, Navy 44s, Farr 30, Catalina 36, Melges 24, J24, J105, J109, J120, and J70s.
My favorite position on a boat is at the helm, but I can get the job done anywhere I am put. I enjoy sail trim, and really tinkering with anything that will make the boat go faster and work properly.
My safety at sea, CPR and First aid are NOT up to date at this moment, but I will have time to take care of that.
I graduate from College of Charleston in early May, and expect to have free time to help with prep work, practice, and deliveries. Please let me know if I can offer any more information about myself, or references.
