About Me:

Presently sailing and cruising in the Bahamas. Come sail away.......

Simply stated, I am looking for one woman who is open to exploring the world on my 45’ sailboat. Sailing among the 3000 islands off the coast of Maine is timeless. Cruising the coast of Maine this summer with two kayaks in tow. Love paddling my kayak late in the afternoon and then returning to my boat to enjoy a glass of wine, some cheese and watch the sunset. When the red and yellow and browns of fall are about gone, it is time to sail south to the Bahamas and spend the winter exploring 700 miles of islands, brilliant blue waters and countless white beaches. Kayaking is replaced with snorkeling and paddle boarding but the late afternoons are still a time to enjoy a glass of wine and the never ending brilliant sunsets.

I have a great sense sense of humor and will make you laugh.... a lot and often. I enjoy and appreciate thoughtful, intelligent conversation. Still learning about life. Serial entrepreneur, started yacht management company and two software companies, made many millions, lost many millions and quite a bit more. I am a much wiser man having been humbled by life and its uncertainty.

Interested in friendship first and foremost. Simple, easy, relaxed, encouraging, laughter, reading, long walks, good music be it Pink Floyd or Mozart. Forever relationship must begin with a true, best friend friendship. I value integrity, trust, honesty and respect for all things living. I am passionate and romantic. I cry easily.

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
