Bishop, Colin 15-24 Male I've got 11 overnight races under my belt, with 5 of those as the registered skipper for Redux (J30). Looking for a fun, competitive boat for Swiftsure. Local, so I'd be happy to do Sunday racing/other events prior if the opportunity exists.

Happy as helm, pit, tactician, trim. I'm out of practice forward of the mast but would be happy to give it a shot.
