Comments: Lifelong sailor, raised on Cape Cod, now out West. Lived and sailed in Long Beach, Ca 20+ years. Mostly recreational sailing and boat delivery. Thousands of miles covering, New England, East Coast, West Coast, Bahama's and the Caribbean. Looking for an opportunity to sail my first Transpac race. Looking for the right Skipper and boat, that is competitive, but is more concerned about the race experience, than the overall result. Since taking early retirement, it will allow me to devote whatever time is necessary to prepare for this race. I understand that I lack racing experience, but if necessary, I am willing to share in some of the overall expenses. Thanks

Comments: Hi there! I'm Sarah from Victoria, BC, Canada. My 28th birthday falls during TransPac 2019. I've been sailing 14 years so I've decided it's time for my first ocean crossing. Experience includes VanIsle 360 in 2015 on an Olson 30; Swiftsure 2015, 2017 and 2018; Round Salt Spring, Southern Straits, countless local club race nights and regattas; racing dinghies for UVic Sailing Team for 3 years; cruising; and teaching kids sailing for 7 years. I'm best at foredeck, mast, and trim but willing to learn other crew positions too. Looking for a boat of safe and responsible people who also know how to have a good time. I have Marine Basic First Aid and a course called MED-A2 which is the commercial equivalent of Safety at Sea (not sure if they'd accept that...) I could take Safety at Sea if necessary. Looking forward to sailing with you!

Comments: Hi there, I'm 30 years old and very fit. I've worked on vessels in Australia, Thailand, and Hawaii; however, most of my relevant sailing experience is with 60ft Cat's on Maui. I have mostly near shore experience and minimal open ocean; unfortunately, I do not have any competitive sailing experience. I'm able to fill any and all positions and have no problem taking the less savory roles as my experience compared to others seems to be lesser haha. My attitude is very relaxed but acute, and I take direction very well; I can get along with anyone and promise to bring a positive and uplifting attitude to the crew. I am open to returning the vessel post-race as well. Please feel free to reach out for a more detailed sailing resume and any other questions. Cheers

Bill Wingrove - 863-521-8179 - billwingrove@rocketmail.com
Position: Jib Trimmer,Main Trimmer,Helm
Experience: Intermediate
Comments: I will be 60 yo in '19 and saw my first Transpac as a 10 yo in Hawaii in 1969. It has been a lifelong goal to participate in the race and the 50th, after seeing Passage, Kialoa, Ondine, etc. on Transpac row 50 years ago, seems like a good time to finally go for it. I have been sailing/racing since that time, learning to sail on a Cal 20 while in Hawaii, with time off the water approx. 35 years experience. I have competed in various boats from Sunfish, J24, and other keelboats in offshore and inshore racing along the west coast of Florida since the late 80's. Participant in national and regional championships along with one SORC campaign. Currently helm a J35 but spent considerable time as main trimmer along with jib/spin trim. Have worked all positions and willing to work wherever I am best for the boat. I am willing to travel for weekend training as often as possible around work schedule. Preference is for a performance boat looking to a class/overall win competitive plan.

Experience: Advanced
Comments: HI, I’m 35 years old, very active and fit, work in Marketing and looking forward to this race! I truly enjoy working in a group setting which is what sailing is all about! I also prioritize safety and staying on the boat above anything else, which helps ensure everyone has a good time. As for Sailing Experience, I’ve just completed a leg of the Clipper Round The World ocean race – leg 3 across the Southern Ocean. So I have ample overnight sailing experience and managing a large crew with a multitude of different tasks onboard, flying spinnaker, helming, sail trim, etc. Living in Vancouver, Canada (I'm a US Citizen) I’ve done most of the VARC (Vancouver/Victoria) overnight and day races – Swiftsure, Southern Straights, Fraser Lightship, Round Bowen etc. I also sail on Wednesday nights with Royal Van on the Martin 242 and various boats on Thursdays nights. I’ve owned a Beneteau First 285 and also raced it and cruised it regularly. As for qualifications, I have OFFSHORE SAFETY COURSE, SMALL CRAFT SEA SURVIVAL COURSE, COMPETENT CREW and my 5,000 mile Southern Ocean crossing with Clipper. Cheers, Damien
