Hey hey! My name is Duff Archie, and I've been sailing more than half my life, since I was about 10/11. I grew up on dinghies and fleet/match racing in high school, but quickly transferred my skills to keelboat racing.
My certifications: US Basic Keelboat Instructor, US Sailing Offshore Safety at Sea
My experience: Keelboats: J24 (Bangor Packett), J105 in Block Island Race Week 2013, Morris 47 (Reindeer) in Annapolis Newport 2015, C&C 51 delivery from Bermuda to New Bedford, MA in 2017. Dinghies -- instructing on Sunfish, Flying Scots, Hobies, 420s/FJs; crewing on Melges and eScow
I have experience in ALL racing positions but am strongest on the Foredeck, Mast, Rail, Pit, & Trimmer.
