Currently based in: Ithaca, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 15004 ocean miles / 4000 coastal miles
I live in Ithaca NY and have owned both a Caliber 33 and then a Caliber 40 which I sailed between Chesapeake Bay and various destinations further south. I have sailed to Bermuda and to the Caribbean and back offshore as well as various passages on other people's boats including a Transatlantic from Cabo Verde to Trinidad. My wife's health forced us to sell our boat but I still like to sail long distances. My job lets me take large chunks of time off so I am always looking for fun passages to places I have never been before.
