Water, Boats, Passion

As an Olympic sailor and circumnavigator, I thought it was time to share my love and knowledge of sailing and sail boats with others with a similar passion.  Having recently returned from a world circumnavigation, I wasn't ready to end my boating lifestyle just yet.

I love to share my passion for sailing and the cruising life with others.  I can help advise you on what type of boat and equipment may best match your cruising goals. I can teach you how to sail on your boat, and I can share my knowledge of what it takes to go cruising, whether it is a year-long sabbatical, or a full circumnavigation. I can teach you the systems on your boat, how to install them and how to fix them.   I've learnt a thing or two:  let me share it with you!

Deliveries and Marine Consulting 

Deliveries: Have a boat you need to get from A to B?  You've come to the right place! I'm a USCG Certified Captain with over 50,000 miles under my keel.  Your boat delivery will be in excellent hands.  

Cruising Coach: Let me be your personal Cruising Coach and help bring your cruising dream closer to reality. By using my knowledge and experience you can save both time and money and zero in on the important things from the start. Check out our Marine Consulting tab to see how I can help.
