I am a recently retired architect and sail a 46 foot sailboat on the Great Lakes. In February 2020 I transited the Panama Canal and crossed the Pacific Ocean on a Leopard 44. I have my Yachtmaster and am an experienced sailor having sailed and raced most of my life. I have crossed the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans and chartered in the Bahamas, Greece and Croatia. I participated in the Atlantic ARC in 2016. I have always maintained my own boats and I am familiar with the various mechanical and electrical systems. I look forward to more adventure, sailing opportunities and hearing from you!
