I have been around boats my entire life (25 years). While growing up, I sailed around the Great Lakes on everything from lasers to tall ships. Then a few years ago, I moved to Nova Scotia to complete my Master of Applied Science degree (…and to gain some ocean sailing experience). Most recently, I have been racing competitively on a J30 as the bowman/jib and spinnaker trimmer, however, I feel comfortable anywhere on a boat. As for my offshore sailing experience, below I’ve highlighted the notable sailing races and passages I have completed thus far:

Tallship Challenge (2001): All the Great Lakes except Superior
Lake Ontario 300 (2009): 300NM (and delivery)
Long Point Challenge (2010): 110NM (and delivery)
Marblehead to Halifax (2011): 360NM (and delivery)
Marblehead to Halifax (2013): 360NM
Countless other trips on my parents and friends’ boats

In short, I enjoy sailing hard, I possess a positive and competitive attitude, and I have experience in off-shore racing. Please let me know if you have any questions as I would love to catch a ride for this race.
