I have sailed in the Santa Maria Cup (Grade I Women's Match Regatta) twice, the US Women's Match Racing Championship several times and countless match racing cliniregattas all in J22s. I have been fleet racing in J22s, J24s, J70s, J80s, Etchells at the national level for the past 10 years. Most recently, the J80 I am strategist for won the Annapolis NOOD and the J70 I call tactics on returned with good results in the Davis Island, FL series.
I have crewed in the Santa Maria Cup (Grade I Women's Match Regatta) twice, the US Women's Match Racing Championship several times and countless match racing cliniregattas all in J22s.

I am willing to sail for free with some help on expenses. Willing to sleep on couches or blow up mattresses and eat cheaply! If there is a regatta in Annapolis, I have two guest rooms and a couch to offer my team.

The majority of my experience in match racing is on the bow of a J22, but I've also trimmed and done tactics for match racing and am currently tactician on a J70 at the national level in fleet racing.

Comfortable with anything
J105 (Breakaway in Annapolis MD + Gryphon in Chicago IL), J42 (Allegiant in Friendship MD), J33 (Delirium in Friendship MD)
Match racing experience: Reading through Dave Perry's Match Racing Playbook. Sitting through hour long lectures on everything match racing from this one guy on the team who was really into match racing. I still need to get real world experience, but it has been hard to find boats in Annapolis that do Match racing.

General Sailing Experience: Sailed J105s out of Annapolis with Breakaway. Had the opportunity to sail with Bruce Stone in Chicago NOODs in 2018. Also sailed with Delirium (J33), Thistle Fleet and Allegiant (J42). Mostly, I am just looking for every opportunity I can take to be out on the water and using those opportunities to improve my sailing skills and continue to learn.

Theoretical Experience: Reading through the "Physics of Sailing" by John Kimball.

Other experiences: Worked on Worlds' best autonomous sailboat having one the International Robot Sailing Regatta numerous years in a row, and then we tried a trans-Atlantic Crossing (boat survived, but ended up going from Newfoundland to Florida instead of Newfoundland to Ireland).

I also teach US Red Book Sailing with DC Sail.

Secured sponsorship deals with Gill and Zhik for sailing gear representing the majority of Canadian Collegiate Sailing teams, back when I was in charge of fundraising and sponsorship for the Canadian Intercollegiate Sailing Association (CICSA).

The intention I have getting involved in Match racing is to make me a more competent sailor. I see Match racing as a stepping stone for sailing more competitively in other classes/forms of racing and perfecting my abilities as a Sailor to the fullest.

Regarding will I sail for free:

I am going to be starting an MBA program in July, and am thus saving as much money as I can for the moment. My sailing budget for Match racing is capped at $125 per event assuming I sail in four events.

This means I should be able to cover flights, but you need to give me a minimum of three weeks notice (preferably four) to book the flights. Using DC to Chicago as an example, tickets from DC to Chicago departing three weeks from now are currently $100. When I look at buying a ticket for flights departing today those same tickets are $600+.

Comfortable with anything
I am relatively new to keelboats but I grew up as a dinghy sailor and sailed at Georgetown. I did some match racing in high school (mostly floating on larger boats) and have started getting back into match racing since graduating. I have competed and practiced for 3 match race regattas as a bowman, and have also spent a little time trimming and doing pit. Outside of match racing I have competed a few times in keelboat fleet races, but mostly for fun!
My general sailing experience is based on dinghy racing growing up and in college. I used to do a little bit of match racing in high school, and have recently started getting back into it. I can do bow, trim, and do pit. I haven't tried helm before but I'm pretty open minded!
