About Me:

I am just checking this out for a bit.
I am 53 (about to be 54), widowed since 2011 and soon to be empty nester. My youngest child just graduated college and will soon be on his own. I work in Nursing Administration at a psychiatric hospital in West Michigan. I grew up in Grand Haven, MI. Lake Michigan, the beach and most of all sailing is my biggest passion. I just bought my second sailboat; 2006 Hunter 31. ❤️

Sailing Experience:

I sailed a little bit in college. Then in 2005 my late husband and I bought a 1994 Hunter Passage 42 Center Cockpit in Mystic, CT and brought her to Lake Michigan, home ports of White Lake and Muskegon Lake. We sailed her all over Lake Michigan until he passed away (brain cancer) in 2011. Sold the boat - sadly. We loved her and sailing so very much. It was absolutely wonderful. But she was too big and cost too much for me to handle alone.
I have also sailed a little over the years on other people’s boats including the east coast on North Carolina, Puerto Rico, VI, Turks and Caicos and San Diego.

Sailing Qualifications:

ASA 101, 103 and 104 as well as 6+ years sailing Lake Michigan. Just bought a new Hunter 31’ so new chapter here. Previously sailed my 42’ Hunter Passage Center Cockpit, “Swept Away”, x 6 years. Bits and pieces of sailing on other boats before and since that time. I have ASA certifications for basic keelboat, navigation and coastal cruising up to 50’
