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:
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.
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!
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.
