Sailing

Sailing is one of my life's passions.

I began as a kid sailing a Sabot in Marina Del Rey California. This was the beginning of a love affair that has never ended. 

I've sailed most of the great oceans of the world and have cruised and raced extensively in the Pacific, the Sea of Japan, the South China Sea, the Atlantic, the Adriatic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and of course the Pacific.

My yacht racing career includes the San Diego to Manzanillo International Yacht Race, the SORC, The Clipper Cup, Admirals Cup Trials, Several San Francisco Big Boat Series, several Long Beach Race Week's, The Lipton Cup and many more.

During May of 2005 I joined the crew of the 134-foot steel brigantine the Robert C. Seamans on its 18-day return trip from Honolulu Hawaii to Tacoma Washington. We made the crossing in 11 days and then spent an incredible week in the San Juan's.

This was an opportunity for me to refine my seagoing, navigation and even my seagoing cooking skills in that it gave me another opportunity to cook for a large crew, something I really enjoy doing.

I have cruised extensively including the Hawaiian chain, the entire west coast of the U.S. from Washington to California. I know Mexican waters well and have done deliveries from Newport Beach California to La Paz, Mexico. I know Banderas Bay and the waters around Cabo San Lucas north to La Paz.

I have also cruised the Caribbean extensively including the British Virgin Islands, Antigua & Barbuda, St. Martin, St. Barts, Saba, St. Kitts & Nevis, Guadeloupe, Marie Galante, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

I sailed on the barque Europa from Nova Scotia to Boston.
