I have been sailing all my life... I've owned 2 sailboats and have chartered dozens of boats over the past 30 years. I have some racing experience. I own my own company and have raised 2 children, now adults. I am looking for interesting opportunities to gain sailing experience. I am happy to jump on a zoom/facetime/teams meeting to introduce myself "face to face". I am English speaking, but I am fluent "en Francais", as I have lived in Quebec my whole life.
