I started sailing when I was 7, and immediately got hooked on it. In the ten years since then, I have sailed optimists, raced CFJs and Lasers extensively (4 years and 3 years respectively), become the captain of my high school sailing team, coached junior sailors, and have consistently raced aboard a good number of larger boats (Cal 20, J/24, J/70, J/109, 1D35, Beneteau First 36.7 & 44.7).
I maintain and drive a J/24 for my yacht club (Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club), so I know a good amount of basic boat maintenance/care.
I have done a few coastal races and only have a little offshore experience (I have done the Ensenada Race once), but really enjoy the sport and am a quick learner.
Thanks for your consideration!
