I started sailing when I was 11 years old in a lagoon on St Croix. I've sailed and instructed off and on ever since. A few years ago I was wearing a suit and looking out my office window at a big city. And hating it! Now I just work at getting my sail on!
I've sailed on all kinds of boats but more wood than plastic. A little racing but mostly I enjoy sailing for life rather than a race. But I do like to make the boat go fast!
I own a 40ft double ended wooden sloop. Masthead rig with classic lines but under the waterline there is a fairly (1963 design lol) modern fin keel. The 50ft version was the first fin keel boat to win the transpac.

I'm only limited by personality and bad attitude.

Great people and thoughtful organizers. And clearly there are lots of people looking to get connected on the water!
