New to the forum. Have been sailing since a kid, grew up on a boat being home schooled in the cockpit
while cruising around the Caribbean
in the mid 70's. Best childhood ever! As many may have figured from my handle Pete O Static, I ended up in aviation and currently fly a B777 for a living. Not so much for the love of airplanes, but because it gives me the most time off to go Sailing!!
Have had the privilege
of owning several boats over the years, a Cal
22, San Juan
35 and I now keep a beautifully restored C&C
29 MkII on Lake Champlain in NY and also have a Jeanneau
36 in a charter
fleet in the Caribbean
I hate winter and I live in Canada
. Go figure.
