    I was born in 1957 and started sailing as a boy in dinghies on the Welsh coast, later cruising with my dad in the UK and Bahamas in his Achilles 24 and Cal 25 sailboats. But after he died, and with a young family and work far from the sea, I didn’t sail at all for the next 20 years. Restarted several years ago with yacht charters with my wife and grown children in the Caribbean (40+ft monohulls). I also built a small sailboat to use on the Tennessee River where we live and will remain while I’m still working. I currently have no proper offshore sailing experience.

    I bought the Bristol in late 2017, with a plan to spend alot of time and do some longer-distance sailing on it when I retire (currently planned for spring 2019). My family will rarely be available or this, and I have no sailing friends, so I think it'll usually be just me or whatever crew I can find on the boat. It's currently on the Chesapeake because that’s where I bought it, but that's as good as anywhere for now because the closest salt water to me is 6 hours drive away.
