About BEAR:

BEAR is co-owned by brothers, John and Brian Barker.  John, the elder, has a vast knowledge of sailing and keeps the team grounded and focused on the race course.  Brian, the wiser one, thinks and knows he is always right.  Typically, we have 5 core crew members and about 15 friends - cool enough to pick up and sail with us anytime!  Some own other T-10's and some just enjoy a great time on the water.
John usually skippers the boat for two reasons:  1)  He is very good and 2)  Brian hates to drive.  The crew for BEAR is a fun bunch of people.  There is Christy Barker, known as CB or DG depending on which lake we are on, is John's wife and runs the hot box.  She is also our snacktition.  Liz Barker (no relation) is, by far, one of the best all-around sailors you can find, and we are lucky to race with her!  She is a master at calling the wind, and no one flies a better kite.  Brian, nimble for his size, fills in at any position on the boat depending on what crew we have for the weekend.  Then, there is Jon Willmott, J-dub or Big Poppa.  Jon is learning to trim the jib and is getting really good at it.  He helps out wherever needed and always brings beer, which is a plus!
