I was raised on boats, sailing the northland coast of New Zealand with my parents. Although most of my experience is coastal, I have sailed many overnight passages, and in gale force winds. I have cruised the South Pacific islands of Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga, and French Polynesia as crew and captain. I’m engineer and business owner with a good mechanical aptitude.
