I understand the concepts of sailing and racing very well, and know most of the necessary terminology. I don't have much big boat or big water experience beyond a J22 on lake Michigan once, but I am very athletic, a hard worker, willing to pitch in however I'm needed, and good at keeping my calm and going with whatever. Please contact me if you have space for a crew like me!

John Thompson - 4104595770 - john.d.thompson71@gmail.com
Position: Foredeck,Mast,Pit,Sewer,Grinder,Jib Trimmer,All Positions
Experience: Intermediate
Comments: Grew up racing on the Great Lakes and then left to pursue a career in the Army. Over the years, have been able to complete 15 Macs combined on both lakes, with a couple of wins as well and relish the years that I have been able to get back for the race. A young 45, 5’10 210, perform well on little to no sleep, used to being uncomfortable, can sleep anywhere and wake up ready to function immediately. Can drive, but prefer to leave the driving to somebody else. More than comfortable filling any other position on the boat from running the hotbox, trimming a chute/A, or the pointy end too. Great teammate and not afraid to work. Live in Pittsburgh so won’t be available until race weekend, but grateful for the ride. Looking for a competitive boat that needs one more piece to make the most of the 2017 Race to Mackinac.
