About Me:

It's that time in my life that I am looking for what's next. I have just completed one great adventure with three great kids living their own lives to the fullest. Now it's time for me, ...or us, as the next adventure unfurls.

Curious about what is over the next horizon, Love my boat "Manumit" (Endeavour 32), I am an avid and competent sailor/skipper , I enjoy independent, bohemian coffee shops, starting to write; and enjoy tactile tasks.

I prefer sunrises over sunsets (though they can be good too); prefer the Impressionists; Celtic music but I enjoy a wide range of music; love a good book and a warm fire but don't get me wrong: I don't like the cold (I know, I know: but I live in Canada!). Good food or wine doesn't have to be expensive or frou-frou. Give me a welcoming pub or beach bar to meet good friends anytime.

But it is the song of a bow wave that makes my heart sing.

Sailing Experience:

Grew up in Malta, Portsmouth and on the water. Sailed competitively for 15 years.

Dreamed of cruising for many, many years and had hoped to teach my kids the meaning of life through discovering new harbours.

I have completed numerous CYA and other certification courses over the years including intermediate coastal skippers and navigation certifications. Would love to complete my Off-shore certifications at some point.

I am the current guardian/skipper of a 1979 Endeavour 32 called "Manumit" and she brings me great joy...and lots of chores. I like a boat that is ship-shape: the ends of the lines whipped; but electrics confuse me.

Just as comfortable trimming as helming.

I have sailed Lake Erie, Georgian Bay and Lake Ontario extensively but yearn to return to tidal waters, ideally in the Caribbean or the Med'.
