Re: Looking to fill out crew roster.

I write to you today to express my interest in your boat trip. While
I don't have a "resume," I have outlined my experience below. I do
possess both a 50 ton Inland Master's license, with Sailing and Towing
Endorsements, and an Ordinary Seaman (OS) MMD. I have a TWIC card as
well.

My father first took me sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, out of Middle
River, when I was 6 months old; I have been sailing ever since. When I
was 8, I began racing on both small boats (dinghies), and Keel Boats.
My keel boat racing experience includes a Cal 2-30, C&C 33, Express
35, J/22, J/24, J/29, J/30, J/35, J/42, Melges 24, Merit 25, Navy 44,
and a Santa Cruz 70. My dinghy experience includes Lasers, 420s, 470s,
JY15s, Thistles, and Optimists. I have done many distance races,
including the Round Block Island Race and Vineyard race, both in 2008.

I have been cruising my entire life. My cruising experience includes a
Pearson Ariel (similar to a Pearson Triton, only smaller), a Morgan
30, Jeanneau 35, Cal 2-27, Beneteau 35.7, and currently a Bayfield 32.
I have sailed offshore many times, including a trip in November 2008
from Annapolis, Maryland to St. Maarten, in the Caribbean. In June
2010, I sailed from Tortola to Providence, RI, via Bermuda, aboard a
Caliber 37. I also skippered a Pearson 36 Cutter from Annapolis to
Bermuda in November 2011.

I began coaching sailing and racing when I was 13- in 2001. I have
been teaching junior sailors every summer since then, teaching
everything from 8 year old beginners (kids who have never set foot on
a boat) to 16 year olds in advanced racing. I have taught at the
Baltimore County Sailing Center for 7 summers (Baltimore County Sailing Center - Home), and
in 2008 taught at the Tred Avon Yacht Club, in Oxford, Maryland
(tayc.com). I have taught Ideal 18s, Rainbows, 420s, Lasers, Optis,
and Hunter Xcites. Last summer I taught sailing aboard Lasers, Opti's,
and Rainbows at YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater, where I continued to
teach school groups and private groups canoeing and team building
activities through December. I am a Small Boat Level 1 Sailing
Instructor through US Sailing, and am also a Maryland Certified EMT
and Firefighter.

Thanks in advance.
