AJ began sailing in Presque Isle Bay at The Erie Yacht Club about 20 years ago. He has raced a variety of boats in the PHRF class locally and all over Lake Erie. He has competed in over a dozen Lake Erie Interclub regattas and ILYA Bayweek regattas. In addition to handicap racing, AJ has experience racing the J35, J24, Beneteau 36.7, and the Lightning.

“My favorite part of working in the marine industry is the opportunity to meet new people. Every time I go out on the water there is always something to learn. Every race is a chance to try out a new tactic, teach something new to the crew, and find that new “go fast” setting. I am always that guy on the boat tweaking something, looking for that 1/4-knot gain. I like that sailing is a team sport. It’s really gratifying to work together to win a race. In my career, I have met a lot of great people and look forward to working with North to help meet the needs of even more sailors.”

AJ looks forward to assisting new and current clients in the Erie area.
