Mike Trejchel   H:678 361-4154    I've been sailing for about 5 years, mostly racing on Lake Lanier, outside Atlanta, GA.  I'm in the Miami area for the next few months for work and I would like to get some sailing in while I'm here.  I'm 43 and very athletic so I have no trouble getting around on a boat.  Please contact me if you need crew.  My number is 678-361-4154.

Kevin Treusch  H: 561-212-3720  I previously sailed with Russ Horn on Jammin' in 2008 - 2009.  I was a consistent crew member for all PHRF races as well as the Key Largo, Columbus Day, and PHRF championship regattas.  After a long hiatus, I've got the sailing itch again, so am looking to find a spot as a consistent crew member.  On Jammin, I was the primarily the bowman, but have lots of experience as a jib trimmer.  Previous to sailing with Russ, I lived in Chicago and sailed on a Soverel 33 named Assassin, as a trimmer and backup bowman.  I sailed in the 2004 (Assassin - 9th place) and 2006 (Wings - 1st in Section) Mackinac races as well as multiple NOOD regattas (Jax, Rochester, Chicago, Tampa).  Have big boat experience from sailing on a Beneteau 40.7 named Barracuda (Chicago), and also raced with them for the Key West feader from Lauderdale in 2006.  I'm looking to become a consistent crew member, and earn a spot on the roster.

My name is Jamie    H:9414560771    I'm new to the Miami area but I'm looking to get involved as soon as possible. I'm originally from the Tampa area so I've done a lot of sailing in Southwest Florida. Most of my racing expe rience I got at University of Florida, where I was on the sailing team. I spent most of that time on 420's. We raced all over Florida, as well as in New Orleans and Annapolis.  I also raced Mercurys and Optis growing up. So, most of my experience is on small boats, but after college I spent some time on larger boats back in SW Florida. I don't provide a lot of weight but I'm fast and athletic; usually when I've raced larger boats I've worked the foredeck.  I'm available by either phone or email.

Perry Synanidis    H:352-278-7572  My name is Perry Synanidis and I am 25 years old. I was a sailor in Greece for the last 15 years where I was mainly the bowman in a Jeanneau Gin-Fizz 38 (approx. 9 years) and the maintrimmer in a FARR ILC 40 (approx. 3 years). While being crew in the Jeanneau, we were national winners in the ORC-N club of the Greece's largest international regatta. I started in optimist sailing for 2 years while in elementary school and I jumped in offshore racing since then, participating in numerous Aegean Sea regattas. I am in the US for over a year now where I sailed in the University of Florida 420 and laser club in Gainesville during my studies and now, while working in South Florida, I am available for sailing and I would be more than happy to be part of a crew. Thank you very much.

Ben Harding   386-538-1417  Hi.  I'm in Florida for a few months.  I'm a keen keelboat sailor.  I have sailed pretty much everything from TP52 to J80.  Most of my competition has been on the Asia Circuit on pro boats, though I maintain ISAF Classification 1.    I am comfortable anywhere on a boat from the bow to the afterguard.  Nowadays I normally call tactics, drive or trim.   I have excellent rules knowledge and have served on International Juries, though I'm not an IJ.  I'd be happy to help out in that area with clubs.   Mostly, I would love to get on board in the Miami to Fort Lauderdale area.    If you are looking for crew, or just want to share ideas, then please do call.
