Position: Mast,Pit,Jib Trimmer,Main Trimmer,All Positions
Experience: Advanced
Comments: My Sportboat that invited me to do RBBS 60 days ago, just announced today that they aren't doing RBBS after having just completed Pac Cup and in need of extensive repairs (and work catch up). So, I'm available for RBBS. I sailed and windsurfed on Lake Michigan as a child and then on the Northwestern University Sailing Team, and started SF Bay and Ocean racing in 2006. Since then, I've participated in several RBBS, whereby my teams have won 3rd twice (J120 at jib/spin trim and Swan 42 at mast) and then in 2017 my pick-up Express 37 team won 1st place at mast, but that crew has mostly scattered. I've won 1st place many OYRA and YRA and other races at Main Trim, which is my preference, although I'm also very experienced at Jib/Spin trim, and also pit and mast. I prepare for the races enough, where I can very politely contribute (and often correct mission critical mistakes that would have cost us the race or RBBS) on Tactics, but I like to have a more senior tactician as the primary. I can weigh 235-250 lbs depending on my beer intake and your needs. I've run 4 marathons, and I'll be the strongest person on just about any boat competing, as I lift weights and row and swim regularly (my brother was a state champion swimmer in IL). I've raced on teams that were 100% former Olympic sailors/pro sailors, which is my ultimate goal, however, I don't expect compensation, unless other crew members are being compensated. Thank you, Alex Kent. Here is my racing resume: https://www.dropbox.com/s/v7qjtr1jujnno9o/Alexander%20Kent%20Yacht%20Racing%20Resume_Nov%202017.pdf?dl=0
