Ashton Blakemore - (810)338-2812 - aeblakem@gmail.com
Position: Foredeck,Jib Trimmer
Experience: Beginner
Comments: I am looking to crew on a boat for the Mackinac and any other races on Lake St. Clair in the summer. I am 29 years old and I have been sailing for 2 Years. I raced on a C&C 35 last summer where I was learning foredeck. I have also spent a lot of time the last two summers learning on a US 22, where I primarily do jib trim. I am eager to learn any new position on a boat. All of my sailing experience is on Lake St.Clair.

Ken McCurdy - 8144492530 - Sailinglakeerie@gmail.com
Position: Mast,Pit,Grinder,Jib Trimmer,Helm
Experience: Intermediate
Comments: I have been sailing for the past 18 years and racing all off that time on lake Erie. I own my second boat, a Kid is Elite 32, that I gave on eastern lake Erie. I have sailed for the past 4 years on Gauntlet out of Holland Michigan in both the Port Huron to Mack race (2015-18) and the Chicago to Mack race (2016-18). The original Gauntlet was a Kaufman 44. A Nelson Merrick 52 became the New Gauntlet last year. I have either crewed or raced my boat in 10 Lake Erie Interclub regattas. This is a five day, multiport race regatta involving both Canadian and US ports. I have crewed on Hunter 27x, IOR 1 ton, J35, and Beneteau 10 R. As the tactician on the 10 R, we finished first in class in the 2017 Lake Erie Interclub. I have ASA certifications, the US Sailing Safety at Sea Course and will be completing CPR and first-aid training by this summer. I am the Assistant sailing coach for the Gannon University Sailing Team in Erie, Pa. Looking forward to finding a new boat and crew to join for this excellent race. I will also be looking for a boat in the Chicago to Mack race too. My summer schedule is flexible so I may be able to assist with transporting the boat to prep. for races.

Position: Mast,Pit,Sewer,Grinder,Jib Trimmer,Main Trimmer,Helm
Experience: Advanced
Comments: 35 Chi-Mac's and 11 BV-Mac's have given me a lot of experience in multitudes of situations that would offer value to your program. My objective is to be engaged as a “worker-bee’ and play a full role as a team member. I understand the importance of being on the rail, staying on your toes with the helm and trimmers as a grinder, and with the helm while a trimmer. I enjoy “sewer” work. I have played “hard” in any role asked or needed – helm included.

Comments: Hi, I am 22 years old and have been sailing at a competitive level for most of my life. I am primarily foredeck but I have experience in every position excluding helm/tactician. I have extensive experience on J105s, and Flying Tigers. Most recently I was on the winning crew for the Canadian Collegiate Mid Winter Regatta on FT 7.5 as foredeck. My experience and willingness to jump into any position makes me a valuable asset to a team. Please reach out with any question.

Position: All Positions
Experience: Beginner
Comments: Hello, My name is Annie and I’m a 22 year old beginner looking to sail one or both races this summer. I’ve worked on the island for the last three summers and have been eager to join a crew the whole time. My experience sailing is limited. I grew up skippering butterflies, FJs, sunfish and lasers so I know the basics—terms, knots, general dynamics, etc. I would love to learn the ropes of something bigger and will be a great addition to your crew, if you’d have me.

Comments: 38 Bayview macs, 31 Chicago Macs, NA 40, J-120, J-105, C&C 35. 67 years old still working fore-deck 180 Lbs, but I'd rather steer and let young guys of 40-50 do the work. If races go I have a Chicago ride, but would hate to miss a Bayview race trying for fifty. May need crew for Chicago myself.

M.L. Hansen - 1-734-642-6454 - validusarbor@outlook.com
Position: All Positions
Experience: Intermediate
Comments: ...crewing on a boat returning from Mackinaw to its home port is fine with me... First the worst. I am 60 years old but I can pass an Army basic training PT test. For 3 years I own, sail, maintain, and repair a 1981 Mariner centerboard 2+2 fractional rig with a self re-cut symmetrical spinnaker from a 30 footer. I often sail solo. I trailer sail lake Erie. My most enjoyable sails are overnight sailing from Sterling State Park around the Detroit light then to a private dock in Gibraltar Mi. I don't have race experience but crewing on a boat from Mackinaw to its home port is fine with me. I don't like storms but have been caught in a few. I have my own land transportation.
