Comments: I used to race 420s as a kid and understand the basic physics of sailing, but it has been a really long time since I crewed a larger sailing vessel. Most of my experience comes from power boats, BUT I am a quick learner and am looking to learn sailing inside and out. Also, I'm willing to do whatever necessary task to help the crew. Message me if you think I would be a good fit! I am looking to exchange crewing for a plane ticket home, but I'm willing to negotiate. 34 yo. Male. 6'.

I've buoy raced dinghies since I was 7 in Marina del Rey, and then raced and taught on lakes in college in the Midwest. As an adult I've crewed primarily as trimmer and tactician on J105s and J120s on SF Bay, as well as a few European regattas such as on First 37s off Santa Marguerita and Genoa in Italy. I've also chartered/skippered 38'-45' sloops and cats for cruising on SF Bay and internationally. I'm ready to take on any position on the boat.

Comments: Hi there, I’m a fairly experienced sailor looking for a ride in this years transpac. I’m a new boat owner and I’m looking to get some valuable experience offshore racing before giving it a go myself. I’ve got about 5000nm of offshore miles in deliveries, and I’ve done a variety of offshore overnight races, either on my boat or on OPBs. I’ve got good endurance at the helm, and can do any position on the boat. I’m particularly interested in weather routing and long distance tactics. I’ve got my Safety at Sea cert, and I’m Wilderness First Responder, First Aid/ CPR certified. My background is in engineering, so I’m good with tools and fixing things. Most importantly, I’m a team player and hoping to get along well with others on the boat.

Comments: I've been sailing since age 4 and, grew up sailing the Solent. I've raced many different kinds of keelboats (Inc J-24's and Santana 20's) in regional and national events as skipper, trimmer, tactician, etc. I've chartered boats in the BVI a number of times. I currently own an early Farrier trimaran and am hoping to find a multihull (cat or tri) to do the race in. I've owned many boats over the years and I'm a good problem solver and "fixer" on the fly. (Inc fiberglass work) The Transpac has been a "bucket list" event for me. I work well as a crew, easy to get along with, and am ready, willing and able to help with the cooking. Besides the experience, I want to go fast and do well!

Comments: Just recently helped sail down a 35ft monohull from San Francisco Bay to Long Beach. Encountered 20ft swells and learned a great deal about sailing in the process. Someone told me there's a race out there, that if I looked in the right place many boats need deckhands. After that passage down I got the itch. Thought it couldn't hurt to throw my hat in the ring. I haven't been sailing long, but want the experience. I work hard, I'll train hard. I'm easy going but willing to do what it takes. I don't expect anything in return other than the experience and knowledge I'd ultimately receive if given the opportunity. I'd be happy to help sail back also, and or I pick up my own ticket back. I'm self funded. I'm 38yr male out of Long Beach. Cheers!

I am CPR certified, First Aid Trained, and have my Safety at Sea Certification. I have traveled all across the nation to compete in a variety of events at all levels. I have also raced in 5 different countries and am a national match racing champion in two of them. I have had an extensive match racing and keelboat career, traveling to both coasts of Australia, England and Mexico to compete in National and International Yachting events. I also have solid larger keelboat experience sailing shorter offshore races and buoy races on boats like It's Ok (Andrews 50), Carbon Footprint (Rodgers 46), Adios (J-120), Heartbeat (Farr 45), Pendragon (Davidson 52), Weggie (Columbia 32), Several Farr 40's, BadPak (RP 65), Defender (12 Meter), and many others. While I have not completed large quantities of miles in one sitting on an offshore race, I am an experienced sailor and am familiar with all types of sailing and boats. I have experience in all positions on the boat and can be an asset in any condition. I am currently at the United States Naval Academy going to school, but have the time to train in the spring and all of summer to prepare and am also on a very intense physical routine. Feel free to reach out with any questions and I am happy to send my resume out as well. I hope to get the chance to join you and your team for this year's race.

Comments: Vela is a fully outfitted Santa Cruz 52 and ready for Transpac 2021. The 'fast 50' class of Santa Cruz 50's and 52's is the largest and most competitive one design class for several of the last Transpac races and promises to be the same for 2021. Check out the listing for Vela on Yachtworld.com and race to Hawaii in comfort on a very fast and classic boat!
