About Me:

One of my first experiences sailing was also an overnight trip and anchoring in a river off the Chesapeake Bay, and of course it was pure magic and absolutely a life changing experience. It's taken many years to be at a point where I can repeat this sort of adventure, but happily this amazing experience has turned out NOT to be a one time event for me. Fast forward to now, I converted my current sailboat to electric propulsion and I regularly sail on the Chesapeake Bay.
I enjoy being on or under the water, especially warm water. Snorkeling is good enough for me, but I am SCUBA certified. Flying is my other life long interest and recently I got started with soaring, which is a lot more like sailing than I would have guessed.
I would like to meet a woman to share peaceful adventures enjoying the great out doors on land, sea and in the air. I'm on this site because if a person doesn't already love sailing for their own reasons, chances seem to be rather slim that they will choose sailing as a priority in life. After my first magical experience, and many more since then, I'm sure sailing is and will remain a part of my life and wish to meet someone who feels the same way.

Sailing Experience:

Learned to sail many years ago at USNA in Annapolis. Have owned this current sailboat and sailed in the Hampton Roads area for 6 years. I would like to visit Annapolis again by boat someday. I have some blue water sailing experience on other people's boats but mostly I've been inshore and coastal with the sailboats. Lots of blue water sea time from my days as a Naval Officer though (three Atlantic crossings, Med and Europe). Both of my kids did end up learning to sail (see the photos), but aren't as interested in it as I am, which is okay with me.

Sailing Qualifications:

Nothing official I guess, just years of practice. I sail day and night, (prefer night), single-handed on a 30 foot sloop rigged mono-hull. I'm working on selling my current boat and hopefully will be trading up to something larger that will allow living aboard and more distant roaming.
