About Me:

I am happily retired and have set up my affairs for freedom to go where I want, when I want. I have a good retirement, family that I love, a few good friends, a nice house and sufficient income. The one thing missing is a companion, which would make everything else much more interesting.

I love hiking and biking the mountain trails here and in Tahoe, skiing with and annual pass (senior midweek rates), sail kayaking on the lake, swimming at the beaches in Tahoe and sailing in the San Francisco Bay. I am an experienced sailor and I sold my Bay boat in favor of sailing the world. I love sailing in the Caribbean, and hope to eventually sail in the Med, the South Pacific and other warm places.

Sailing Experience:

Taught myself to sail when I was 22 in Grand Cayman on a Sunfish, windsurfed in Florida, sailed small boats at the Vineyard, lived on a Dehler 41DS for 10 years on the San Francisco Bay, sailed up and down the west coast on my boat and club boats, recently cruised the BVI (monohull) and Windward Islands (big cat) and now sail my Hobie Adventure Island on Tahoe.

Sailing Qualifications:

Took most of the US Sailing certification courses at Club Nautique in Alameda, Sausalito and Marina Del Rey. Passed all positions of CPM, including overboard drills on the ocean at night in 30+ knots of wind (now that was fun).
