Hi, I'm looking to continue expanding my ocean sailing experience. I grew sailing in British Columbia and have been actively racing and cruising my whole life. I'm easy-going, friendly, and understand the intricacies of living on smaller boats. I've been across the Atlantic on a power vessel and raced to Hawaii as well as some other open passages. I have a number of formal certifications (some expired) and some basic engineering knowledge.
