Hi there, am active, healthy, fit, easy going inland and coastal cruiser looking for opportunities to broaden my sailing experience. I began sailing something like 25 years ago purchasing first a sunfish followed by a Catalina 22. I have captained charter cabin sailboats from 29 to 35 feet. I shared a Catalina 34 for 5 years in the Chesapeake. I am not working and my calendar is pretty flexible. My offshore experience includes two Caribbean 1500 rally’s and one circumnavigation around the Delmarva peninsula. Annapolis to Block Island. Annapolis to Charleston. No problem with travel expenses or sharing in boat expenses. I would be happy to provide a full boating resume on request. Drop me an email and let’s share an adventure.
