This is Tom.  

silly guy

You can often find him hanging around Cooper Boating on Granville Island.  He’s one of our Instructors, and also one of our capable crew aboard our entry boat Alegria for the 2016 VicMaui race.

Right now, Tom is trying out some new safety gear for ascending and descending masts- I’ve been given the task of contact person- I am standing in the nice warm office with my coffee in one hand, 2 way radio in the other- watching Tom out in the crisp air wrangling lines.

“Hello Max, testing”.  Says Tom.   Max has just gone to lunch.

“Max isn’t here Tom,  It’s Jeny”. 

“Ok great- just testing my emergency line”

“Oh don’t worry Tom”, I say, “ you’re completely safe in my very capable puppeteering manipulative hands”. 

There’s a short burst of static. . . did he drop the radio?  

“Oh!” he chuckles, “that’s - really. . .  great!”

I think he likes Max better.   It’s probably a guy thing.

 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.
