Charles von Möll Email or

37 year old expatriate from UK / Malta, grew up sailing dinghy’s (lasers, Wayfairers, squibs, dragons) as a child. Did a number of long ocean sails including Southampton to Canary Islands, Canary Islands to Antigua, and also did lots of deliveries and crewing around the Caribbean.  Very confident on a boat but has not done a lot of actual racing as such, and has not been sailing for almost 6 years.

Fit, healthy and strong and ideally would like to be on a larger boat to begin with to get used to racing again.

Grew up sailing in Long Beach, California in Dinghies and Big Boats.

Dinghys: Naples Sabots, Lasers (radial and full rig – competed in multiple world championships), FJs, 420s, and Skiffs (29er, 49er, 5o5, and i14). Crewed and skippered in large events such as the Governor’s Cup and Diet Coke Cup and have an extensive background in Match Racing – participating in the US Match Racing Circuit multiple times.

Took a break and went to Boston University where I competed on the varsity sailing team racing (FJs, Lasers, and 420s) before coming back to California to work/sail.

Big boats: began on the bow as do most young kids do before moving back to trimmer/tactics on different level J-boats (J-105, 109, 120), Schock40s, Farr40s, and worked/sailed for a long time on Peligroso (custom Dencho/Kerr 70). As time has gone by I have spent time working/sailing on Pyewacket (Roy Disney’s 70’), competed in a couple Farr40 world championships, J70 worlds, crossed the pacific from Hawaii to LA on a TP52, and much more offshore racing. I also have 5 Lipton Cups under my belt – prestigious yacht club challenge in California and a plethora of Match Racing up to the Congressional Cup. Ultimately, I feel more than comfortable on any position in the boat and love being offshore. From a safety standpoint, I am aware of the dangers and take care to know where all safety items are located on the boat, I have my own PFD and harness and offshore gear, and always have a crew plan in the case of an emergency (who is responsible for what).

In 2008 I went to Qingdao and raced in the Qingdao race week in the Benateau 47s and had an incredible time and have itching to make it back to china and race again. This race has been on my radar for some time – it looks like a great ride! I am hoping to join a competitive team and help us cross the finish line in first.
