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)

Started sailing in college with a friend, then windsurfed, began april '10 with OCSC classed and charters, approx 40 days on the water in 2010, am I addicted yet? I plan BBC cert. in 2011. I Would like to join crews for racing or pleasure sailing.

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

lately on OCSC's J-24, Cat 32 and 36, J-105, Sabre 36. But dream of sailing on the larger 40-60Ft mono hulls or catamaran for coastal or Inter Island cruising.

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

ownership, Yeah Someday. I am currently helping "fix up" a 1976 Newport 27 with a friend at the Marina Bay in Richmond. He purchased it from the "Sailboat Jail" at Berkeley Marina. She was just neglected and needs some TLC and elbow grease.

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

BK and BC certified through OCSC Berkeley Marina

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. But, My Orthopedist says I have "Big Man Disease of the Knees" Yet I am not letting that stop me living life nor from sailing. Just wear knee pads when necessary.


To sail or not to sail? HMMM, there is NO question. SAIL of course!!!!
