Comments: I am in Alaska and I have my Catalina 28 here and sail as often as I can. I don't have racing experience but I am willing to learn. My aim is to transit the Pacific in '24 or '25 and I am thinking that I can learn a lot and build community prior to my endeavor. I am eager and willing to do what is necessary. My disposition is casual and easy going. I was in the Navy and have seen the majesty and power of the open ocean. I am into the experience. I am 53.

I do enjoy the helm but I also enjoy sail trim. I don’t need to be right, if the skipper gives a command I do what the skipper says. I’m not big into conflict. I know how I like to set the sails to go fast but I’m not going to get into arguments, especially on a long race. Crew fights make the race even longer and much less fun. I am Safety at Sea certified 2019 and am have my US Sailing Level 1 and 2 certifications. First Aid and AED/CPR trained. I have been on our local youth boating association Board of Directors for 11 years and am currently the Operations Committee Chairman. I am a retired dentist.

Position: Foredeck,Mast,Pit,Sewer,Jib Trimmer,Main Trimmer,Tactician,Helm,All Positions
Experience: Intermediate
Comments: I’ve been sailing in amateur/club racing in SoCal for 9 years mostly on Beneteau First 40.7 and some smaller 27-30ft boats like J29s. I own and campaign ‘Saga’ in Dana Point and Long Beach which is a Beneteau First 40 mostly on inshore random leg and windward/leeward races. Longest race I’ve skippered is Around Catalina on Saga (2022) so new to true offshore races. 40 years old, 185lbs and relatively strong and agile on the boat. Also a computer engineer so very capable around electronics including troubleshooting an tuning and I also spent my youth building an drag racing Mustangs so am a very capable mechanic/engineer. I’ve done all positions on the boat from stern to bow but would be happy with any position for a transpac race! Looking to crew on a transpac boat for a few years with the goal of racing my own boat one day!

Comments: Hi! My name is Alexandria Zimmerman, I'm 24 years old, and I have about 20 years of racing experience on the Great Lakes. I completed 9 years of junior sailing, 4 years of varsity high school sailing, 2 years of collegiate sailing, and coached junior sailing for 5 years. I have been racing on everything from Thistles to Catalina 27's to Orma 60's and everything in between. I have raced in offshore regattas at Larchmont YC in New York, as well as completed 6 Port Huron to Mackinac races. I'm looking to do more distance sailing and hoping to find a boat for the 2023 Transpac race! I am extremely comfortable in all positions behind the mast, but excel as a jib/ spin trimmer and helmsman.

I usually work the bow/mast positions, however,. on this race, all crew work all positions. Further, I work the galley but I do meal prep etc. for the entire crew for all dinners on my time,. and still cover all my watches on deck.
