New to Chicago - Looking for Crew Spot

Hi guys,

I apologize if this message ends up in the wrong spot on here - I'm new to SailNet and the "Crew Wanted" topic seemed logical.

My name is Grant, I'm 23, and I moved to Chicago from Southern California for a consulting job in January. I'm looking to get on a boat for this coming racing season and beyond. I have been sailing big boats and dinghies regularly since 2006 when I joined my college sailing team. I sailed on the Chapman University dinghy and offshore teams for four years and became a regular on an Andrews 50 for beercans, coastal, and a bit of distance racing. My jib/main trimming is pretty solid, and I am comfortable with most boat positions (including sym/aso kite trim in light-medium breeze) except foredeck and driving, where I have limited experience. I am DEFINITELY looking to learn and build my sailing skills, despite the absence of salt in the water here (WTF?!)

If you've got a potential spot or know of one, please PM, call, or email me and I'll send over my sailing resume.

Thanks in advance, and I hope to see you all on the water soon!
