About Me:

Having grown up in Miami and attended college in Santa Barbara, California, I’ve lived in Miami, North Carolina, Virginia Beach before returning to The Florida Keys and living aboard a 39’ sailboat for ten years in Marathon. Currently living on the west coast of Florida and dreaming again of living aboard and cruising the Caribbean. A certified scuba diver since 1967 NAUI instructor since 1970. Last year I spent a couple of months visiting Guatemala and Panama and would love to find that special person to share sailing their coasts and offshore islands and exploring their inland communities. Of course, the trip to get there would be the icing on the cake. I enjoy listening to most music, but I’m a ‘folk-singer’ by heart. There has to be room for at least one guitar, a mandolin and a handful of harmonicas on my next boat! Photography and diving are my other passions. I’m hoping to find a like-minded co-captain to share it all.

Sailing Experience:

I’ve owned a series of boats (26’ Westerly, 31’ Southern Cross, 48’ Cheoy Lee and a 39’ Allied Mistress) on which I’ve sailed the Chesapeake Bay, the Florida Keys and the Bahamas. I’ve recently chartered in the San Blas Islands and one day hope to return on my own boat for a longer visit to that beautiful, primitive paradise. I have found that boat, an Allied Seawind ll, and am reading it for an extended cruise through the Bahamas this winter and then, who knows. I’m hoping to find another adventurous soul to co-captain the boat and this next life adventure. Think you’d like living and cruising aboard a 32 footer? Let’s say hello!

Sailing Qualifications:

A power boater since I was seven years old, most of my sailing experience has been In the Chesapeke and the waters surrounding Florida and the Keys. I love anchoring in quiet places and enjoying a sundowner while planning for the next day’s adventures.

I’m planning a leisurely sail through the Keys and over to the Bahamas this winter and would like to find an adventurous, female partner to share the sailing, diving, beachcombing, sunsets and some laughs along the way.
