Recently moved to SF from living in New Zealand the past 6-7 years. Looking to get back on the water. Most of my experience is solo coastal cruising, but have also crewed a few races here on the Bay.

How would you describe your sailing experience? At the end of your description include a title for yourself (look at other profiles, or the about page for ideas)

Cruiser. Roughly 5-6 years sailing experience. Four years as an owner and coastal cruiser in New Zealand, one year racing in SF. Would love to attend more events but unfortunately must be budget-conscious. Might trade labour for a few outings! (c:

What type boats have you sailed on - or dream of sailing on? What sort of sailing do you do? Cruising, racing, beercans, YRA . . . Transpac??

Have mostly sailed on single and multihulls between 35'-40'. I prefer small groups for coastal, medium when racing (its nice when a team pulls together, but not when you have to climb over each other constantly), and large groups for day trips.

If you are a private boat owner -- please describe your vessel in as much detail as you can.

Current vessel is a 35' Hartley trimaran, moored in Auckland. Before that had a 21.5' Alan Wright variant for about a year. Work takes me down there two or three times a year. Lately seems to be more maintenance than sailing!

Do you have any US sailing or ASA certificates? Do you bareboat charter?


Are you disabled or have limited mobility? You'll be welcomed, but it's very important for skippers to know ahead of time to keep everyone safe while sailing (you included).
