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 taken some good classes, and am gaining experience by chartering boats with a local boat club here on the SF bay. When I have less time, or find it inconvenient to round up a crew, I sail with the meetup groups, or some of the local clubs weeknight/afterwork sails.

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

Ive sailed dinghys, keelboats, cruisers, and a few others. Most of my experience is with sailboats in the 30 to 40 foot range, but I can pilot a RIB as well. Overall I am more interested in weekending/day sailing on the bay and checking out local sites. I hope to do the Baja-ha-ha in the next couple of years.

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

No boat yet. Contact me if you're thinking of selling a 27' to 32' sailboat. A Catalina 30 would fit the bill nicely.

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

US Sailing Bareboat. I charter locally while I slowly hunt for a sailboat, mostly day and weekend sailing now. I generally take a sailing course per year to balance formal education with sea time and experience. Coastal Passagemaking and its related nav courses are next on the agenda.

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).

No disabilities.

Introduction

I have been sailing for a few years and am enthusiastic about getting out on the bay as often as I can.
