A Lifetime Vocation

Hi Everyone,

My name is Timm and I am new to this forum and very excited to have found it I am a MARS officer in the Canadian Navy and have just begun my training. I am originally from PEI, Canada and have always loved sailing and being on the water and look forward to doing much more sailing in the future both on the military and civilian side!

I have some small boat ( laser, 470, pirate, and albacore) experience as well as tallship (the Picton Castle) experience. I am very much interested in catamaran long distance cruising and hope to retire to many circumnavigations

Thank you for providing me with such a resource to learn from!

Timm
