Dear Shipmates

Introduction

I’m a very active, outdoor person delighting in sailing, kayaking, scuba diving and to a lesser extent, fishing. On land I cycle in the summer, play hockey year-round, rock climb, and winter camp. I was a martial arts instructor for decades but have retired recently. As a result of these activities, I am physically tough and can perform under demanding conditions.

I grew up farming, building and repairing machinery and operating farm equipment. I enjoy woodworking and tinkering. I have refitted two boats to a high level (one was purchased by a marine surveyor) and am familiar with most sailboat systems (specific refit tasks available upon request). As a result, I am resourceful and able to jury rig repairs as necessary.

On a boat, I’m quiet, respectful, enthusiastic, patient, and willing to learn or teach. While I enjoy good wine, I am also content to not drink alcohol. I do not smoke and prefer a non-smoking boat. I can fumble through various dishes suitable for offshore meals and am working on my offshore recipes. While on passage, I revel in night watches and quiet reading. I enjoy fishing talking about all things sail-related and thoughtful discussion.

I have been sailing my own boat for more than 25 years but am ice bound too much of the year. As I transition from a professional career (PhD, biometrician/aquatic ecotoxicologist), I am looking to occasionally deliver sailboats to address my blue water addiction.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

visit remote placesseek adventureface challengescareer change

I have Canadian accreditation up to Advanced Piloting, VHF certificate and Advanced First Aid. I've done the following passages (Chesapeake- US VI - Grenada, US VI - Grenada, BVI - Bermuda - Newport, St. Maarten - Azores) as well as extensive cruising on Lake Huron. I’m looking towards building miles in pursuit of an advanced certification, possibly the Sail Canada Offshore Cruising Standard or the RYA Ocean Yachtmaster in order to deliver boats on an occasional basis.
