About Me

Experienced Pac Cup crew looking to get back to what I love, warm water and surfing waves to Kaneohe.

Experience with Youtube Links:

2016 bowman on a successful crossing/survival Pac Cup, sailing on the Orion 35 "Nicole". Complete overhaul of all systems to prepare for the race, heavily involved in boat prep and planning. 4th place after diverting around tropical storm Darby. https://youtu.be/Mycq3Q2A6vE

2017 Navigator/Driver on the J109 Junkyard Dog in the full Ca Offshore Race week. Radioman during our successful search for the dismasted Moore 24 "Snafu".  5th out of 11 Spinnaker Cup, 2nd out of 4 Coastal Cup, 3rd out of 7 SoCal 300. https://youtu.be/R3nHBRV1HbE

2018 successful Pacific Cup campaign on the beautiful Swan 461 "Free". Watch captain, trimmer, comedian and the calm voice at 3am in the morning reminding everyone that we're having fun. 2nd out of 10  https://youtu.be/1_niMXatP_E

Too many lake, bay and OYRA races to list but I'll happily send my complete race record to any prospective boat. I can also provide contact info for all previous boat owners for references. Race experience on: Laser, Banshee, Santana 20, Catalina 22, F24 Trimaran, Wavelength 24, Express 27, Wilderness 30, Islander 30, Jeanneau 32i, Orion 35, J109, JPK 1080, Swan 461

Likes: Good conversation, good music, serious racers that don't take themselves too seriously, late night driving, complementary skill sets, safety minded crew

Dislikes: Yelling for no reason, over confidence, lazy driving, poor preparation, dishes

About me: 40 years old. Married 10 years with a beautiful 7 year old daughter. Tech industry job near Sacramento. Currently own and race a Santana 20 at Folsom Lake and an Islander Bahama 30 out of RYC. Currently crewing with the Psycho Tiller II crew (JPK 1080)

I've seen what it takes to get a boat from the boat yard to Hawaii and everything in between. Let's team up and sail fast in 2020.
