 STEVE CROWE bio - It seems like I have been on and around the water since the day my family first arrived in Canada from     Newcastle Upon Tyne, England over 40 years ago.  Starting as a junior sailor on dinghies, I crossed over to keel boat racing in my teens and haven’t looked back.  As a boat builder, sail maker and rigger, as well as owning my own repair shop for over 20 years, I have had the opportunity to sail the seas across the globe.  Most recently, I managed and captained the Mayhem Racing program which started with a Farr 40 and graduated to TP52s.  Aboard these Grand Prix boats, renowned in sailing circles as fun, safe and reliable, we have had some outstanding results on the course.When not on the water, I split my time between hanging with my wife and daughter in Vancouver and working at North Sails.
