I'm new to this forum, but an old salt
sailor. I hold a 100 ton off shore CG license
for power & sail. I have about 10,000 blue water
miles, sailing mainly the east coast
but have sailed the west coast
(SoCal and the San Juans in Washington) and Hawaii
I've done my share of racing
- the old Ft. Lauderdale - Key West Race
a bunch of times, Key West Race
Week (although not recently) and crewed on the SORC winner in '90 when they still had the ST. Pete - Miami
Race. Have done the Sol de Sol - St. Pete to Isla Mujeres, MX and Antigua
Race Week. Skippered a support boat for Team New Zealand
at the '95 America's Cup in San Diego
My boat - nothin' fancy - a Hunter
34 that I bought for Lake Lanier in Atlanta and took to St. Pete a decade ago. She's at the Pasadena Yacht & Country Club in Gulfport, FL - between St. Pete and St. Pete Beach. Not the best boat for cruisn', but fine for extended weekend trips down the Florida west coast
. Although, we did take her to Cuba
in '94. Cruise
the FL west coast - St. Pete to the Keys - mostly these days.
Sailed to Cuba
in '94 - spent 2 weeks in Havana and a week along the NW coast. Most fantastic sailing trip I've ever had!
Haven't cruised a whole bunch the last 2-3 years. I bought a couple of horses and have a small farmette in NW Georgia
about 45 minutes NW of Atlanta. Also a house in Atlanta.
, unattached and ready to go cruisin' again. Also available for race crew and deliveries.
Atlanta, GA / St. Pete, FL
