Dear Shipmates

Introduction

I would like to build my mile log and learn some techniques from others while sailing. I've skippered a couple charters in the BVI's and done some local sailing on Lake Michigan. In May June of 2023 I crewed on a 2000 mile delivery from St Thomas USVI to Newport RI. In June of 2024 I crewed from San Juan PR to Aruba.

A little about myself, my interests and my plans
