About Me

I am a young woman (23) with plenty of experience under my belt. Besides countless hours of buoy racing, I have sailed in over 30 long distance races throughout the PNW on a wide variety of boats. I have worked hard to learn every position on board, and do not get sea sick (knock on wood). 

Notable/Important skills: Wilderness First Responder (intensive wilderness trauma course), McGyvering (see below*)

Boats I have sailed extensively: J109, J33, Corsair F24, J80

Notable long distance races: Race2Alaska (2016 and 2018 onboard team Lost Boys, F24), Swiftsure International Yacht Race (2018 and 2019), Round the County (WA state)

Positions and comfort level: skipper (9/10), mainsail (8/10), headsail (9/10), bow (7/10)

Optimism level at 100% even when 10 days in guaranteed. 

*Shit hits the fan sometimes. Like in R2AK when our tiller snapped off at the rudder post while inside a shallow, high-walled cove: no radio, no cell service, and the nearest marina was over 15 miles away down a narrow strip of water with 15 knots of breeze we certainly couldn't peddle against. Did we have a spare tiller? No (should we have? probably). So I made a lovely tiller, using a lifeline stantion, a re-purposed bolt, and the handy dandy aluminum selfie stick on board. 

I'd love to talk to you and see if I would be a great fit for your boat!
