- Name: Walker Stutzman
Message: I began sailing as a kid on Lake Eau Claire (outside of Fall Creek, WI). Did a little sailing in college, and started back up in earnest about ten years ago while in law school. Three years ago, bought a Catalina 22, which I keep at Lake Wissota Yacht Club in Chippewa Falls. Love sailing there, but usually am single-handed cruising and so learned a lot through trial and error, and still know there is a lot I don’t know. I would love to learn more from crewing with some “Old Salts” who actually know what they’re doing.
Crew Experience: Started as pit and rail meat on a Farr 395 out of Norwich CT while living out east. Moved back to Eau Claire and crewed two years on various daysailors on Lake Wissota as sheet trimmer. Moved to Milwaukee and crewed for two years as sheet grinder/pit on a J130; was also shore crew for Race to Mackinac but never got to do the actual run up the Lake. After moving back to the area, I bought my Catalina 22 and have sailed her for coming up on four years. Now don’t let this fool you; I still consider myself a novice who needs to be barked at from time to time and is certainly in need of an education on more- effective race tactics and perfecting trim.
I am Interested in crewing weeknights/Fridays (Beercans, Tuesdays, etc.) and some weekends. Can do Committee Boat as well. Also very (very) interested in crewing for Bayfield Race Week if anyone will have me. Thanks in advance, can’t wait to join you on the water!
