About Me:

I am originally from Montreal (vous parlez français?) but found my way to Vancouver Island, where there is the perfect combination of ocean and mountains to satisfy the adventurous spirit. I have raised my two daughters, who are both studying oceanography (biology and physics). I have been an internationally competitive volleyball player where my height (185cm or 6'1") was an advantage, though something that is not always on a boat. I am very fortunate to be quite free to travel to sail or simply sail, with planning and the right intention. I'm interested in continuing to explore the fjords, islands and oceans while leaving as minimal a trace as possible.

Sailing Experience:

In my youth, I learned to sail lasers in the Thousand Islands along the St. Lawrence River. After a long hiatus, I took up laser and 420 racing on Vancouver Island. As well, I crewed on a San Juan 28, mainly working the jib and flying the spinnaker. In 2014, I bought a Kirby-8 and skippered her around the Southern Gulf Islands as well to Desolation Sound. I've outgrown her and bought myself a Mirage 35, lived onboard for a year, sailing between Victoria BC and north to Octopus Islands Marine Park, navigating tidal channels and intricate waterways. In October of 2019, I returned to land in my house, while SV White Pearl awaits our next adventure.
