I've been sailing since I was 12 years old, when my father taught me out on the waters of Puget Sound aboard our home-built 31' Piver-designed trimaran. These days, my wife and I are primarily cruisers. However, we do take part in a couple of ocean races each year, including the Oregon Offshore International Yacht Race. We're currently in the preparation stages of a 1-2 year cruise down the U.S. west coast and into western Mexico, with a start date of July, 2010.
Sailing: Mexico, Eastern Seaboard, Canada, Western United States, San Juan Islands, Canadian Gulf Islands
Not Sailing: Germany, Italy, Austria, UK, Key West
