Farmilair with all modern set ups, symmetrical, asymmetrical, dippold, end to end, peeling both kites & headsails. Always eager to learn and give 110% for any boat I sail on.

Position: Foredeck,Mast,Pit,Sewer,Grinder,Jib Trimmer,Main Trimmer,All Positions
Experience: Intermediate
Comments: I live in Alameda, have a car and a flexible schedule, and am available all 4 days and for training between now and then. I have ten years' racing experience: 4 years in Wisconsin in the ILYA on A/scows and E/scows (both asymmetrical spinnaker planing dinghies) where I did runners, time, pole/tackline, and trimming. Then I spent 3 years sailing out of New Orleans on Ponchartrain and in the Gulf on V-15s and various PHRF boats, including an Olsen 30 and a Hobie 33, where I did all the roles as needed. I moved back home to the Bay almost 2 years ago and have crewed around 50 race days on and outside the Bay in that time, mostly as foredeck on a J/24 (Flight) and as trimmer/grinder on an Express 37 (Bullet) in bouy, distance, and ocean races. I participated in the 2017 StFYC Women's Match Racing Clinic. I weigh 158 and am reasonably strong and agile. I'm *very* focused on winning during the race but chill about it afterwards, to the point that I don't have a written record of results that I was a part of that I can transcribe here. I'm happy to do any role during BBS. I learn fast and I love living in the Bay Area where there are so many smart sailors to learn from.
