Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Westport, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 500 ocean miles / 3000 coastal miles
Born in Munich Germany I started sailing on the Bavarian lakes early on with a few trips trips to the Baltic and North Sea for multi-week cruises. After moving to the US in the late 80th we (my wife and two children) settled in Westport Connecticut, mainly due to its proximity to the ocean. Ever since we owned cruising boats of varying sizes, sailing predominantly in the New England Waters, aside from annual bare-boating trips to the Caribbean and Europe for cruising and racing.
