How long have you been sailing?

Off and on for 15 years. Also, my brother and his wife are passionate sailors with two racing boats, though I'm pretty sure that familial experience does not in any way improve a person's personal sailing ability. It does, however, make us more tolerant of sailors and their behavior.

How did you get interested in sailing?

I had to take a PE class in college (University of Guam), the thought of running around in 90 degree weather did not appeal to me, but sailing was one of the PE choices, and I love the water, so I took sailing.

What is your objective in Joining FISA?

No answer yet


I enjoy sailing but enjoy the Fire Island sailing group even more, so wanted to see everyone more than two weekends a year.

What Laurie F. is saying about this Meetup Group

The group is very welcoming to members at all levels of experience. It is a great place to learn sailing skills at your own pace and while having fun.
