About Me:

I grew up in Wisconsin. We had a cottage on an inland lake. I learned to swim, waterski, motorboat, and sail at a very young age. Along with that, I learned respect for the water and weather. I learned to maintain whatever it is that I owned and the pride that comes with hard work. Later, life took me to Colorado where I continued to enjoy waters like Lake Powell and motorized boat ownership. Now that I am able to free up my time, I want to purchase a sailboat (hopefully a catamaran) and keep down on the gulf.

Sailing Experience:

I started sailing small boats at fourteen. I learned to read wind and sail on my own. I started racing that year. I raced for four years. There were always around 15 entries each week. I enjoyed competing with an elderly man that had sailed all of his life. Each year we would take first and second overall. He loved the competition and would compliment often. We built a wonderful friendship. Later, I've enjoyed sailing multi sail boats when the opportunity arose. I'm quite inexperienced, but I am very mechanically inclined. I tend to understand the physics behind the actions taking place. This has always made learning come easy for me.

Sailing Qualifications:

I am currently taking ASA 101 and 103, and scheduling 104 on the Sea of Cortez. I also plan on taking 114.
