New crew in town

I am a life-long sailor, and have recently moved to Wilmette from the city.

I have been crewing on Solings and Tartan 10s for the last 10 years out of Gilson Harbor and Belmont Harbor.

I am still active in the Soling fleet for 2009, but the schedule is light this year, and I have always been interested in crewing on a Hobie.

If anyone is looking for crew - either for a race or just to tear it up on the lake for a couple hours, I am game. I work in Glenview, so I could potentially make it for an impromptu late afternoon sail in addition to the weekends.

I can be reached via email:


Mark, I would show up at the beach on a good sailing weekend day. Bring your own equipment if you have it. You get wet on cats. There is always boats looking for partners to buy into and you can rent Getaways at the shack if you just need to get on water.
