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

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
( 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.

Looking to fill out crew roster.

We sail a 72' Alden Schooner named "Dirigo II" for the summer in the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound Area. We are a family business, and charter the boat, doing some racing, some adventuring, some relaxed sailing, ect...
Right now we are finalizing our schedule for the season and looking to fill out our crew.
Check out our website at
(We are in the process of updating so some pages are incomplete, like the schedule.)
Please respond with description of experience, a little about yourself, and what your requirements are.
Thankyou, Morgan
