Dear Shipmates

Introduction

I started sailing in 2014 when I got my ASA101 and 102 certifications and bought a Catalina 22. I have since gotten my ASA 104, 105 and 114 certifications while chartering a Catalina 350, a Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 and an Island Packet 420 while also sailing my boat. I have sailed in small lakes, the great lakes, in the Florida Keys and in the Virgin Islands. I am also a private pilot, SCUBA certified and a former martial arts instructor. I know very little Spanish and German but would love to learn more.

A little about myself, my interests and my plans
