Hi WVYC! 

My name’s Ashley Burns and I graduated from UBC last spring and will be spending my first summer in Vancouver. I started sailing on the Great Lakes when I was 8 years old and was the head sailing instructor at my club for 5 years, instructing for 6. I was on the UBC sailing team throughout university and competed in Canadian Nationals, US women’s as well as an international regatta in France on J70s (which our boat won!!). I was also the club lead in my sailing team for two years.  I worked 4 summers in a chandlery fixing and working on boats (rigging, glassing, mechanics, restorations etc) and have a lot of experience on different types of boats. Back home I have a Pearson 30 but she sits in Ontario. Before that I had a CS22. I’ve also spent ample time on a R boat (40 ft wooden boat) and various other boats crewing.  I’m looking to keep sailing this summer in Vancouver and would love an opportunity to get out on the water. 

Many thanks,

Ashley

Hello, 

I am a 33-year-old woman who’s had a fair amount of sailing experience starting when I was 10. I skippered a Catalina 27 last summer but had to give her up due to the cost. I was hoping to be added to the crew bank. I’m taking a RYU Competent Crew course this summer and I’d be interested in getting more miles. 

Thanks,

Sarah Jamieson

Hi, Skippers!

My name's Aaron. I'm 43, 6'. I have no issue working as 190 lbs of rail meat. I am ridiculously competitive, but tone it down if the crew is out for fun. I have my PCOC, SailCanada Beginner, Competent Crew, Day Skipper, Intermediate, and Coastal Navigation courses, my own sailing gear (incl. tether), and can supply beverages. For all the courses, I am really a beginner sailor. Eventually, I want to crew the Southern Straits, Van Isle 360, and Vic Maui. Other races and blue water passages interest me, too. My interest is also for safety: I want to get the most of my boat if/when it's necessary. My long-term goal is to retire onto my boat and blue water cruise.

I can be reached at 778-837-7740 or zekehall@gmail.com.
