Crew looking for a ride:

Name: Jacob Bruce (posted 7-14-2019)
Preferred Crew Position: any, most experienced with bow and helm
Experience:  Competitive dinghy sailing in HS (Northwest) and college (Midwest), as a skipper. Since college, I’ve mostly been sailing on a variety keelboats of <30ft. On a keelboat, I’m comfortable with any role (including driving, if you need it), but am most experienced with bow for symmetrical kites. I love short course, competitive racing, but only if it’s good-natured. I’d love to find a regular ride, and could easily commit to one night a week and some weekends, potentially more. Hit me up if you’re looking for crew, even if it might not be a good fit. I can’t wait to get back on the water.

Name: Suzan Williams (posted 4-25-2019)
Preferred Crew Position: any
Experience: I raced in the J-24 fleet many years ago on my father’s boat, Andiamo, and would very much like to get back into racing. I began racing at 9 years old, beginning with Snipes. I even crewed in the Junior Nationals and came in 3rd one year. My family and I then graduated to J-24’s. I raced through much of high school, but was then off to college and nowhere near water. When my family and I moved to Seattle, I began crewing again on J-24’s for a handful of years until I began my own family. It’s probably been 15 years since I last raced, but I’ve been blessed to be able to sail for pleasure every summer since then.

Name: Daniel Sheckler (posted 8-17-2018)

Preferred Crew Position: Any

Experience: I am looking to learn more about making the j24 go faster in fleet 24. I have been a J24 skipper racing one design in Sandpoint Idaho for 18 years. Before that I raced lasers. I have some experience racing in seattle in other fleets, and this spring I was on the winning J80 at POD.  I would be comfortable at any position you need me, and will be trainable to your methods. I look forward to sailing in a larger fleet and learning the tactics, sail trim, and boat handling that you employ, as well as the conditions in your venue. I’ll bring beer, and a positive attitude.

Special Consideration: I am only available for weekend long regattas, since I live in Idaho.

Contact: Please contact me at my first and last name with no spaces or hyphens at gmail d.o.t com. Or at two oh eight six six zero eight three seven three
