Tall ship schooner sailor for 10 years in Key West....sailing is my passion but for now sailing in my dreams usually at least 3 nights a week! I`m raising my son in a liberal Ohio village-home of Antioch College...I teach English to Spanish-speaking kids...love blue water, coves, nature, animals, kids, growing things, laughing, good wine and food, music, arts, culture, remote places, speaking Spanish, the wind... I`ve been in 40 foot seas and now am sometimes in those same seas teaching inner city children...long to get back into sailing...
Yellow Springs, Ohio
Florida Keys, Florida coast, Bahamas-Cat Cay, Bimini, HighborneCay, Staniel Cay, Great Exuma-Georgetown, Great Inagua, Port Antonio, Jamaica, Fiji, New Caledonia, Sydney, Australia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand, Cuba, and Dry Tortugas...there are more but these are by boat...
Make new friends who share my love for sailing-I could vicariously sail through your experiences! You can take the girl away from the sea, but you can`t take the sea out of the girl...fair winds and full holds...Cathleen
If ya miss the 40 ft seas, I'll post some for ya later. We had a nice little no name storm a year ago October off of Mexico, 40-45ft and 80 knot breezes. Took a couple of good 45° rolls.
Unfortunately left a million homeless in the state of Tabasco, Mexico.
We sustained some damage onboard but after dealin with it for about twelve hours, we made it into the port of Dos Bocas with no steering, which was fun as the last 30 footer crawled up the stern and finished tearing everything loose. Interesting day.
I'm from Troy Ohio, sail a MacGregor 22 and a Catalina 25 on Acton Lake at Hueston Woods. I'm looking to find some blue water crewing experience this summer. In the meanwhile, I'm having fun locally. Would love to hear more about your experiences if you would care to join me for a sail when the weather is a bit warmer.
I've been to Key West a few times myself.
Did you know Callee Frith Manning?
He ex: hubby Chris(?) was on one of those Cats in Key West.
Callee is back in Bermuda with her son.
Hi, Not many places to sail near Yellow Springs, no wonder you have to do it in your dreams. I sail my Bayfield 25 in Lake Erie when the water is not hard. I sometimes think I should move south to were you can sail all year long.
"Another question, or if you could put me in touch with someone who may have done this.
My new owner of the Freedom 30 was told to have mast taken out ,so as to add items to the top. Has this been done b4?..kinda scares me.what do you think?
"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well.
I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left me handicapped. I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
"Finally got back on Seaknots. Boat is sold to a family w no experience. He is currently, bringing the boat up to new additions. And doing a great job. We could use some advice on sail cleaning. Any experience in that let me know. Are you…"
