About Me:

I am new to sailing but love it. Looking for a partner for cruising.

I am a good cook and a fast learner. I can fish. I can clean fish and cook them but someone else has to kill them.

I love to snorkel and have my PADI card. I have a surfboard and a boogie board. I love to do all of those and have done them since I was a wee girl. I also love to just go for a row in a punt. I have been scuba diving in Bermuda, SoCal, and in Thailand. I can speak Spanish too. I like to do things locally. I am not a fan of resorts or fancy places. I want to be with the people, the regular, lovely people, the indigenous people.

My kids are grown and doing well so now is my time to do what I have been wanting to which is go sailing. My hope is to be gone for years. I am interested in Austral-Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Bermuda (of course) Africa and the Med. Even as far north as the UK. It will be about 18 to 20 months before I clang the retirement bell.

I am the executive director of a nonprofit that does river restoration work. So I am very environmentally minded and have done a lot of advocacy. I have a background in government and am an urban planner by training. I am intellectually curious. I want to travel with people who are intellectually curious. I have a limited number of international contacts in the oceanography and climate science area.

I am easy going and don't get riled easily. I am calm and thoughtful in disasters.

I am a very light drinker and am not interested in partying a lot. Rather I am interested in exploring the most out of the way places and meeting people whose cultures and way of life are different than mine. I would rather have a couple of good friends than a boatload of fair-weather friends.

Not a Trump supporter.

And I can sing and enjoy singing with others.

Oh yeah, the profile picture was taken this year.

I will be fully vaxed by the end of Feb. Woohoo!

Sailing Experience:

I have been around boats all my life. I am from Bermuda. I have sailed in Panama and am sailing in San Diego. Hope to do the Baja Ha Ha this fall. I hope to find a boat that is willing to take me on, teach me.
