Have you sailed before?

15+ years of sailing SF Bay, coastal to Mexico, Pacific Cup to Hawaii and return on my own ship, and a year sailing Melanesia, in addition to 40+ days/yr aboard my own boat on the SF Bay, or abroad on a much larger sailing schooner for 2-3 weeks/yr. Cetacea is my second, smaller, sailing ship, allowing me to sail shorthanded. I am a highly experienced and legal Captain, but not a USCG documented "Captain" Captain, since I sail for pleasure and shared passion, and not as a more restrictive business. I'm also the Captain of our shared destiny when aboard Cetacea, and that subject is only discussed by mutineers and those not yet thrown overboard, hahahahaha

Do you own a sailboat Y/N and if so what type and length?

Yes, 1-off Blue Seas 42' cutter-rigged pilothouse "racer-cruiser". more cruiser than racer, for sure, although we clocked an average of 9.7 knots over multiple 10-15 minute AIS sampling periods surf-sailing the Potato Patch in 5/2014, and that is above her hull speed <yayyyyyyyy>!

Do you own a power boat Y/N if so what type and length?

Cetacea has a big shiny new diesel engine and enough fuel to motor for 5 days non-stop: does that count?

Home town or harbor for your boat?

SouthBeach Marina in SF.


Tech entrepreneur enjoys SF Bay daysails, Potato Patch romps, and weekend trips to the Farallon Islands. I enjoy costume parties, picnics, and fun sailing with platonic-only friends and, occasionally, my gf. Cetacea is great with 4-8 crew.

What KB is saying about this Meetup Group

Cetacea has enjoyed meeting happy and celebratory crew on Meetup. We look forward to meeting more adventures-seeking crew aboard Cetacea in 2015!
