About Me:

I sailed small boats as a kid on Cape Cod and now, many years later, I've finally found my way back to sailing. But I've been commercial fishing for many of the intervening years, so I've been around boats and the water most of my life. I bought a Passport 40 on the east coast a year ago and hope to circumnavigate. I'm not in a position to retire yet, but between a flexible work schedule and the miracle of digital communication, I plan to be sailing several months at a time. I was intending to head for Panama this fall, but Covid changed that so now I'm planning to sail up and down the north east coast of the US this summer and then think about Panama either before or after next hurricane season.

I've travelled a bit, had lots of different "careers," and lived in off-the-grid wood heated cabins. I've got a good sense of humor, I love kids and dogs, am really easy to get along with, avoid drama, appreciate good conversation, am way liberal , have two graduate degrees, and have lived an eclectic life. I've had two novels published by a major publisher. I'm divorced with two kids in college. I'm kind of quiet but sometimes I'm not. Love a party, but also love some solitude or a quiet twosome.

I haven't raced and don't really have an interest in it, but I'm also flexible and persuadable.

Sailing Experience:

Sailed as a kid. More recently I've gone along on a crossing from Chesapeake to Bermuda and on to St. Thomas. I don't have a lot of experience in big boats, but I'm learning.
