Retired Contractor with a passion for sailing. I own 2 sailboats a Jeanneau 40 in Oriental NC and a Pearson 28 Lake Gaston NC. I’m interested in ocean sailing opportunities with more experienced cruisers to assist, gain knowledge, experience, meet new people and see new places. If you need an additional crew member for a cruise, crossing or a segment please contact me. I’m easily available on the mid atlantic coast of the US but willing to travel to and from the right opportunity.
