I own and have raced my 1974 Tartan 41 offshore, including to Bermuda last year. This will be my fourth Bermuda Race. My full sailing resume is attached and pasted below. I am 46 and in great shape. So far, through dozens of offshore trips, I have not yet been seasick.

I would be happy to navigate, serve as watch captain or crew on the right boat.
I live near Boston and am available over the winter and in the spring to help with boat prep. Even though I am a lawyer, I have very good mechanical skills.

I am looking to be part of a competitive team that has fun.
