Experience: 2000 ocean miles / 4200 coastal miles
I am a life-long sailor and I currently own my own 25 foot Pearson which I sail on Lake Champlain in Vermont (USA). I have lived aboard, crewed and been paid crew. I've done a delivery from Trinidad to USVI and from St. Barts to USVI. I had the pleasure of crewing on a boat from St. John to PR and raced in the Court Series which continued in the BVI. As a youngster, I sailed with my parents, down the intracoastal waterway from Annapolis, Maryland to Miami, Florida. We also sailed across Lake Ontario many times while living in the Toronto area. I am comfortable reading charts and sailing with a compass and the stars. My strength is at the helm since I have done this since childhood. I am also an observant sailer when it comes to watching the sky for weather and watching for ships at night. I would welcome the opportunity for a new adventure, am an avid photographer and would like to perhaps create book about a new sailing experience.
