37,000 offshore racing miles. Few more cruising. Also a bunch inshore racing in smaller boats and dinghies. Helped introduce Windsurfing to Canada in mid '70s. Have raced and sailed all Great Lakes except Superior. Have raced and sailed on east coast of NA from Halifax to Key West. Done the east coast several times south and north, inside and outside. Done Hudson & NYS Canals 19 times over the years.
Lived on LI Sound during the '90s and now between Maine (mostly) & Ontario.
