Took sailing lessons as a kid and past two Summers have been sailing in Boston area through Community Boating on the Charles River.  Have some racing experience on Cape Code Mercury 15’s and Sonar 23, am familiar with the racing rules and very eager to learn.  Recently moved to the Seacoast, my schedule is flexible and hope to get out on the water this Summer.  Interested also in gaining some experience outside of racing if anyone needs another hand on deck on weekend cruises.

I’m interested in crewing for Tuesday night PHRF racing.  I bought a 26′ Ericson a year and half ago and have been teaching myself to sail, mostly single handed as well as have taken 10 hours of private sailing lessons. Also have  been taking  NauticEd classes online.  Do not have any racing experience, but am keen to learn and have heard racing can be the fastest way to learn as well as a great way to make connections in the local sailing community…both are my goals.

Jake Adkins   jake.adkins@live.com or 734-755-1638.

Interested in Tuesday (PHRF)  racing.  I have been sailing for 30+ years.  My dad was a yacht broker back before the crash in 1989.  I was part of his boat delivery crew, and it was a good excuse to skip school and hang out with him.  I was Skipper Of The Year in the junior sailing program at GIYC I participated in for 4 years around the same time.  Since becoming an adult, I purchased a ’89 Catalina 25′ (SRWK) to be able to teach my wife and kids how to sail. We did several 7-day cruises in the great lakes, and when they were young pretty much lived on the boat during the weekend (Western Basin Lake Erie).  My wife and I raced our boat for a couple of years on Lake Erie, and also have done 2 bareboat charters in the BVI on 40′ catamarans.   I will be in town for the next 2 years working for Lonza as a consultant Project Manager. Demographic info on me (Age 43, Height 6’1″, 230lbs, non-drinker)  My schedule is 2 weeks here and 2 weeks back home, if this sounds like a good fit contact me.

Reina and Stan Ellis 603-661-0184/603-682-9680

A bit about our experience:
Stan grew up sailing in Portsmouth, RI, and learned to race as a member of the Newport Yacht Club. He has a lot of experience racing 420s. We had a number of adventures on our 420, a Tanzer 16 and a Catalina 22. Together, Stan and I lived on our ’69 Cheoy Lee (36′) and sailed from Great Bay Marina to the Bahamas for about a year before crossing from Thunderbolt GA to Bermuda, the Azores, and down the west coast of Europe. We sailed through the Mediterranean for a few years and got as far as Fethiye, Turkey. Our boat has been on land for too long and we are touching her up and plan to put her back in next summer now that our son is happily off at college. As far as crewing, we are happy to be on any boat with any captain and will pitch in however we are needed. We can come as a pair or individually.

I live in Portsmouth and began crewing this season on a J30 (Grace Margot) on Tuesday nights and weekends. I would like to crew on a J24 for Thursday night races. If you are aware of anyone who could use additional crew members for Thursday night races, please let me know!  Besides experience gained through PSA races, I’ve also completed an adult sailing course at KPYC sailing 420s.
