I have been a life-long Bay Area sailor. I was taught by my father (who also was a life-long sailor in SoCal) starting at age 8 in the Redwood City sloughs. My first boat was an El Toro. My family owned a Choi Lee 40 throughout my youth. We day-sailed and cruised many times on that Choi Lee including trips around the greater Bay and Delta, out the Gate, around the Farallon Islands, up to Drakes Bay and down to Half Moon Bay and Monterey. I taught sailing to fellow high school students in Mercurys and Shields. I owned a 505 and then a BEAR. I was a member of Cal Sailing years ago. I was one of three crew member’s ferrying a 32’ sailboat down the coast from Alameda to New Port. I have also sailed Lasers, an O’Day Javelin, Hobbie Cats, a Rhodes 19, a Star, Folkboats, J24s, J105s and a Ranger. Races over the years: Multiple Big Boats series, one design races, Vallejo races, CBRA, YRA, Silver Eagles and of course Berkeley Beer Can races. I skippered my Bear in the WBS. I have crewed for a Knarr, a J105, a J30, a Tartan 10 and a J120 as Pit, Trimmer, Foredeck and backup skipper. I was PIT on the J120 at the Terra Nova Trading Key West 2004 race week taking 3rd place in PHRF 5 and 1st place in the J120 class. I was away from sailing for about the last seven years so that why I under rated my skills. Cheers

Used to sail with SF Sailing almost every weekend 1999- 2003; cruised the Caribbean and Turkey; OCSC Basic Keelboat, Cruising and Coastal Nav. Been out of the country since then with very little boating. Back in the Bay and ready to get back on the water! Mostly weekends, maybe an evening once in awhile. Not afraid of 20-30 knots but do not like heeling more than 33 degrees :-)

I am a biotech engineer in the peninsula area who is looking to gain experience before a bareboat charter this upcoming summer (2017). I sailed the long island sound for a summer in 2014 where I got my keelboat and cruising license and chartered for a few days. I have owned a power boat for the last 17 years and am familiar with general boating procedure. I am interested in any type of sailing experience and look forward to learning more.

I'm 46 and sail in Europe since the age of 13. I'm used to all positions and always willing to learn and improve. In Spring/Summer I cruise in the Mediterranean see on the family 37ft (Comet 375), both alone or with family and friends. In Fall/Winter I take training sailing courses in Britanny with the Glenan's Sailing School. I would be happy to experience the sailing in the San Francisco bay.

Member of the LCYC in Louisiana for a few years. Raced Sunfish/Lazers/Hobie's around the lake. Owned an S2 27, ComPac 23, and a couple of Hobie Cats. Sailed from Ventura, CA over to Catalina/San Diego and then sailed the Baja Haha back in 2011 on a Catalina 30. Finished 1st in our class with nothing but sail power from anchor to anchor. Crewed on an Irwin 42 from Galveston, TX to Port Aransas for the Harvest Moon Regatta a couple years after that and then back to Galveston down the Intracoastal Waterway. Still have a lot to learn but I feel comfortable around boats, know the important knots and terminology, listen, and learn quick.

Many years racing Hobie 16s in San Diego but not much big keel boat experience. Responsible and dependable. I'm not the kind of guy that leaves you to do all the cleaning after the sailing is done. Looking to crew during the week day evenings.

I'm a newbie, I just got my ASA 101 certification and absolutely love being out on the water. I'm looking to get more experience crewing for skippers who have knowledge to share. I am hard- working, and happy to do menial tasks in exchange for some knowledge and experience. I am a documentary film producer with an irregular schedule, so I can be available pretty much any day of the week with a few days' warning.
