Position: Mast,Pit,Sewer,Grinder,Jib Trimmer,Tactician,Helm
Experience: Professional
Comments: Stay out of the way, usually. Show up on time. Don't imbibe till the race is won. Last time I raced Block, we came in third for around island. Still have the tie. Fit, smart, good looking and humble. Screamers, screechers and anal retentives not a great fit. Heavy marlinspike skills. Not always right, but never in doubt.
