Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Whiteville, North Carolina, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 10000 ocean miles / 3000 coastal miles
I am currently retired and live with my wife Ann in Whiteville, NC. I spent my career as an entrepreneur having owned and operated six different companies. Most recently, I worked as a founder and developer of a five-star resort in Belize, Central America. In my past, I took a sabbatical from my then career as a stockbroker and sailed my Morgan 38 for several years throughout the Caribbean. Following my "retirement", I owned and operated a charter fishing vessel in Alaska for a number of years, taking guests fishing for halibut and salmon. I hold a 100 ton captain's license for power and sail and am also a PADI divemaster. I am looking for people who would feel more comfortable having a seasoned sailor aboard while taking part in a rally or when crossing an ocean.
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: married
