- About Me:
Fit, slim, and energetic but not annoyingly so. Two adult relationships in my life and still on good terms with both women. I never had kids, but our cats were a great substitute and generally cleaned up after themselves lol
I got my sailboat late in life, just 3 years ago but I now solo it in all weather. I'm 57 y/o, I won't take your breath away at first, but I'll grow on you, promise! My mind and humour are a tad offbeat.
I'm outdoorsy and play ice hockey year round, snowboard, hike, mountain bike, curl, cook and more.
I'm not here to collect friends, if the universe smiles upon us, we're outta here LOL
- Sailing Experience:
No formal training, the seed was planted on a single-sail Sunfish in northern Ontario when I was 15. Fast forward 40 years - I had two weekends on a 25 footer, not long after, a 10 days charter in the Grenadines. Currently attending and never to graduate from the School of Trial and Error. Basically I taught myself by getting out there and simply doing it - and thousands of hours of *******!
In 3 short, 6 month seasons on Lake Ontario I have learned to rig, de-rig and solo my CS36. I'm not nervous and never seasick. I find it to be a huge thrill to maneuver an 8,000 kg boat in a good wind that is not simply "pleasant sailing".
I don't mind sailing in moody weather while still in Canada, but I'm dreaming of a live aboard situation in warm, salty water with colourful feesh!! So the plan is to take Righteous to the Caribbean in late 2021, after that, who knows?
My real dream? To sail with my future Queen across an Ocean on a boat we acquire together. If the crossing never happens I see us very happy to live a simple life aboard, cruise and explore coasts and coves until we decide it's time to head back to shore... Yes that's my vision of a romantic, cozy, adventure in a boat for two ;-)
If you have more miles than I (quite possibly) you'll find me to be an excellent mate aboard, a great student, and I respect anyone with true expertise of any kind. Hell, I'll even call you Captain!
