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.

Mike Nelson, 714-962-1781
Dear Mentors/H20 Skippers. As a friendly reminder I am a rookie at sailing H20 #89.
I am interested in finding a Skipper that needs a ROOKIE Crew member for any of the upcoming Regattas in my boat or their boat. (or an afternoon of sailing). So if you know of any H20 Skipper or someone that wants some time at the H20 tiller with race experience, please feel free to forward them my email and phone number below.
I’ll bring the juice and cookies.
Thank you in advance for any of your help.
