About Me:

I am a free spirit trapped in a conservative world. I am an accomplished professional with a zest for life and meeting new people. I'm that girl that strikes up conversation with the table next to me at a restaurant and makes friends all over the world. I love interesting people and places.
I'm not sure how I woke up one morning and decided to google "men who like to sail", because it never dawned on me there was actually a group of like-minded people looking for the same thing. I am not an online dating person and have refused the suggestions from well meaning friends for years. I live in a small town, travel frequently, but it seems I never have the opportunity to sit down and get to know someone.
My interests are vast and I love food, wine, tennis, golf, dancing, traveling, cooking, animals of every kind and my family, not necessarily in that order. Professionally, I am an attorney/mediator/arbitrator and wine writer for my local magazine. I also love to write poetry and children's stories, although I have not published, yet. I love music of all kinds and love to see live music, particularly at Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado. I love the outdoors and love the mountains just as much as the sea. Any place with scenic beauty is perfect.
I would love to meet intelligent and interesting people and if I find someone special to share my time with, then that is a bonus.

Sailing Experience:

I did win the Camp regatta when I was 14 and was "Miss Sail" for years as a counselor. I taught younger campers how to sail Sunfish sailboats. I recently took ASA 101 certification course on a Hunter 28.5 on Lake Travis and passed with flying colors. It was my first time on a wheel and the muscle memory of a tiller for the past 40 years was a tough one to overcome, but I did it. It was so much fun!! I'm hooked!
I am interested in learning more about sailing and being able to contribute as crew with others. I live in the middle of multiple lakes and I am about 3 hours from the Gulf Coast, so there should be ample opportunities.

Sailing Qualifications:

ASA 101 Certified on Hunter 28.5.
