About Me:

I have been racing dinghies and windsurfers all my life and have brought my Sabre to Florida and am now based in Miami. I have spent the last year and a half refilling my Sabre 425 and it now has all new systems. .I am looking for a partner who has experience cruising. Diving and navigation skills are a plus. I hope to travel abroad extensively once we all get through this.. I also like learning about other cultures, like ethnic food and like obscure music. Not looking for a text partner. Currently racing a Finn in Miami.

Sailing Experience:

Finns, lasers, windsurfers, Jet-14's, Thistles, J22. J24, J30 J105 etc 2 mac races, Night bay races, 505 worlds, Kona worlds, laser Master worlds. Now, the ditch and some ocean sailing.
