New to board

I just came across this board.

As retired school admininstrator who loves to teach and loves to sail, my retirement plan was to teach sailing. I become an instructor in 1991 and retired in 2003. Currently I am:
  • International Sail and Power Association Yachtmaster Offshore (sail) Instructor
  • International Sail and Power Coastal Skipper (power) Instructor
  • International Sail and Power Association Instructor Evaluator
  • Canadian Yachting Association Advanced Instructor
  • Canada Yachting Association Coastal Navigation Instructor
  • Pleasure Craft Operator's Card Instructor
  • Marine VHF Instructor and Examiner
I have about 24,000 miles of sailing, mainly in the Pacific Northwest. Recently I completed my second offshore passage: Newport, RI to Bermuda to St. Barthes. The first was Honolulu to British Columbia in 2000.

I recently sold my shares in a sailing school, so I am back to be a free-lancer.

I am not a boat owner.

I am looking forward to participating.

Jack Dale

Welcome, Jack. Sounds like you have tons of experience and knowledge. I'm pretty new to sailing and I'm grateful for the knowledge of experienced folks and their willingness to pass it along.

Aloha Jack,
Welcome aboard! Good to have you and your experience here. We get quite a few questions from new folks about sailing techniques and gear and it will be good to see your responses. Your input will be greatly appreciated.
Kind Regards,
JohnL
