I am a 60 year old professional living in Washington DC, married and semi-retired. As I am easing into retirement, I have had the opportunity to sail more often.

Do you own a boat (and if so, what make and where is it located)?

I own a C&C 35. It is located at Jabin's Marina near Annapolis

What is your level of experience (Never Sailed, Novice, Intermediate, Expert)?

I am a lifelong sailor and consider myself an expert though not in racing as that was never a major focus. I have crossed the Atlantic twice, sailed from San Francisco to O'ahu singlehanded and have made several trips to the Caribbbean and Mexico.

    Hi Gene, I am sorry to be ill today. Been up all night thus far and feeling pretty poorly. Hopefully you will allow me to sail another time. Thank you and I hope you all have a great day on the bay! Fern

    Hi Gene,
    It was nice talking to you at the last Boatyard meet up. I told my brother that we talked about the jobs/boats and he is interested in coming next week as well. Hope to see you there!

    Hello Gene, Haven't heard of any sailing meetups lately. Will there be any saling lessons in the near future? The weather is excellent these days, and definitely perfect for sailing. Well, enjoy the summer...hopefu­lly I might be able to join a group or two as I'm planning on a move to Annapolis. Looking forward to that part of my travels.

    I saw some messages going back and forth between some of the other members about their favorite day, and thought, perhaps, you had suggested your favorite day to sail, and that I had missed that message. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I'm new to Maryland, but I have zero friends in these parts of the woods. I was born in PR, and have lived in sailing towns. I think I still have my sea legs, but I do need some much needed sailing lessons. Therefore I do look forward to a meetup with the group as soon as can be possible. The timing may be a little off for my schedule, but I do look forward to staying in touch, and meeting the group. Happy sailing to you all :)

    I have not seen any favorite day yet from you (Gene), is there something that I missed?

    Hi Gene

    this is Michael, Claudia's husband. I have been sailing for over 40 years. Niche to join your group but would like to know more about you. Your profile does not say anything yet...

    That's great, Gene. I look forward to hearing from you. I believe Thursdays will now be my free day, not Wednesday.
