About Me:

Very easy-going, adventure-seeking, and active. I wake up everyday grateful for my blessings and excited to start the new day. I recently retired from a very "giving" career, so am enjoying a little bit of hedonism for a change (while I'm still in good health). In addition to sailing I enjoy many other sports including scuba and snorkling, canoeing (flat and moving water), kayaking, skiing (downhill, x-country and back country), biking and SUP. I also enjoy quieter pursuits like music (both consuming and performing) and appreciate and partake in other arts and crafts. I love learning new things, so keep my mind active and challenged. I also enjoy back country wilderness canoeing trips and love animals (both domestic and wild) having grown up on a farm. I'm really good at keeping myself entertained, so am pretty low maintenance. I am just as comfortable roughing it, as I am dressing up for a gala (in fact, I really enjoy the variety of both). I am not home grown, but from the UK (where I learned to sail as a child).

On the sailing front, I prefer the pace of cruising now but happy to race occasionally (I can still move fast) and partake in fun rallies.

I am divorced with 2 grown children who are completely independent now. Although they are geographically remote, we are very close.
