Rob Reid , 510 329-2741
Availability: Available always, if you need help Im ready to sail
Experience: My sailing experience goes back to owning and sailing my Snowbird in Newport Harbor as a child, and learning to appreciate the Santa Ana winds! My first racing experience was the 1969 Flight of the Snowbirds in Nwpt Harbor. When living in the Bay Area I had a 12ft Banshee and sailed the SF bay out of Berkeley Marina. I have been back home in Newport for 5 years and have been sailing extensively with the Oasis Sailing club as a Skipper. With the club I have been training new sailers to be Mates and Skippers on our two Catalina 34 Mark IV boats. I have helped develop the current Racing program with our club and I have entered our boats in many PHRF offshore races over the past couple of years. I have been through a training/sailing experience with Peter Haynes, which gave me an appreciation for the Harbor 20 one design boats. I am confident in my abilities to be an affective crew. Feel free to call and ask questions, and I look forward to hearing from any skippers in need.
