I have sailed all my life, and the skills that I bring are a sensitivity to sail setting, good helmsman’s capabilities, a desire to keep sails and course set precisely, and cooking skills. I am 55 years old, athletically fit and in good health. I have sailed in various dinghies, frequently in extreme conditions including surfing large breaking waves in Lasers and Flying Scots, as well as sitting motionless in Windmills, waiting for the elusive puff. I raced Windmills for 15 years, and won the Middle Atlantic District Champs in 1989 at Oriental, North Carolina. My blue water experience consists of passages between the US Virgin Islands and the Middle Atlantic US coast as well as along the Eastern Seaboard and Pacific NW . I have bareboat chartered for many years in the Caribbean, Alaska, Maine and Australia.
