All my life. A great deal of it in small boats on Cape Cod when I was young. I've spent many years racing locally and doing deliveries in the Atlantic. I'm active on Race Committees for both adult and youth events.
I've owned several boats, but the only one remaining is my daughter's Laser sitting in the back yard.
In a normal season I spend a fair amount of time on the water both racing and helping with event administration. I sail mostly out of Wayzata and do long distance events out of Bayfield, Wisconsin.
While I don’t claim it as lineage I was born in the same town as the US Navy. I grew up inside of boats in the Boston area and on Cape Cod. I came to Minnesota to attend college, left and returned several times before rooting myself here in 1984.
