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)

I have many years of sailing and powerboating experience including over 40,000 miles at sea. I have owned and sailed on boats from 16 ft to 70 ft both racing and cruising.

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

Mostly cruising; prefer being out on the ocean as oppossed to daysails on the Bay.

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

I have an Aerodyne 38 designed by Bruce Martin and I have been working to convert it into a great high performance cruising boat. It has a retractable sprit for assymetrical kites and an inboom furling system so is quite easy to sail.

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).

I am an avid sailor and have a boat in Marin. I love to meet more people passionate about sailing and like to take guests out as crew.

    Hey Herb,
    thanks for the note ....yeah 100 riders seems a bit much for me as well.
    I'll keep you posted, but not many have responded in the positive for a smaller group ride....only 1 or 2 friends and they are on the fence.

    Hi Herb,
    Thanks for the note...what appears to be a Vizsla is acturally a Redbone Coonhound, she was kind of a Vizsla with an attitude.
    We had to put her down due to Bloat and Torsion that large chested dogs sometimes are afflicted with. Exactly where is the dog play area you use? I'm looking forward to the Thanksgiving pot-luck dinner this Thursday; sorry you'll have to miss it. don

    Fantastic 50s Plus!

    Hi Herb, I am so sorry not to have replied to your generous offer before now - or to have been able to accept it! By the time I saw it I was en route to SF, but in jeans to meet another friend, so not dressed for the event... I tried to reply via my phone but it's 3 yr's old & I couldn't access this - then I was gone for several days with no computer. I just wanted to thank you now for your thoughtfulness.­ Hope to meet at something else soon! Thanks much for thinking of me!
