I have been in the water since I was two. I was a competitive swimmer thru college. I started windsurfing in 84 and sailing a Sunfish in 93. Bought a wooden dory in 99 and a 30' sailboat in 2000. I love everything about sailing and have been doing it regularly for over 25 years.
Mostly sailed on our 30 foot Newport but some big cats as well. I am a cruiser at heart and love to do 4-5 day trips around the bay, Delta and Napa River.
Our 1981 Newport 30 is the perfect bay boat. We have a roller furling jib for the variable conditions of the bay. She is set up for a day sail group of 5-6 folks and very easy to sail.
Chartered in the BVI in April 2008 for a week with my wife and my two sisters and their husbands. We had a 58' cat for a week with a captain and a gourmet chef. It was one of the greatest trips ever with lots of SCUBA and fine wines and food. Also charted in the Sea of Cortez, and Belize.
Sailing is my passion and I enjoy sharing my passion with others. I have a great boat in Emeryville and sail once a week. Let's go sailing!
Fun, food, friends, sailing. What could be better!
