Don C L

    Bio: From the age of 16 to 38 or so, most summers saw me as a river guide in Idaho and occasionally Grand Canyon. In high school I learned to sail on SF Bay and I only lasted 2 years in college before my sailing passion had me putting college aside for a while. In '79, I bought a Columbia 24, a great pocket cruiser, in Santa Barbara. For ten years I sailed around the islands, then lived aboard when I returned to college, and then started a Boy Scout Ship that chartered boats and sailed the islands. Had a couple delivery trips as crew, one good one on a Frers 65 from Sri Lanka to Hong Kong; lots of adventures on that one. Then along came "real life" and a teaching credential and time in the trenches in LA, teaching... and chartering during summers for trips with friends. But now, 25 years later, I am finally happily getting splashed and sunburned again in one of my favorite boats by S and S; it is "the one I always wanted" for sailing my beloved local Channel Islands. My 2 kids are ecstatic, my wife is warming up to it and I am always just looking forward to that close reach, the smell of the islands, and that cup of coffee watching the sunrise, or cool beer watching the sunset, anchored in a quiet cove on Santa Cruz or Santa Rosa or San Miguel Island again soon!

noelex 77

    Bio: My wife and I started sailing 30 years ago when we hired a 30 foot yacht from a desperate charter company, that gave us a boat without any prior sailing experience. We didn't kill ourselves and quickly bought our own 25 foot yacht that we completed in the backyard and then spend every holiday and many weekends racing and sailing to some of the remote anchorages that we love. Eight years ago we retired early and started full time cruising. Currently in the Med on our aluminium yacht, with plans to slowly sail back to Australia over the next 10 or 20 years.

    noelex 77's Boat: Half built Bestevaer.
    Location: Living on dirt waiting for our new yacht to be built.

    Bio: Driving a computer during the daytime means I need to escape to the outdoors at the weekends. Viv and I bought our yacht together having spent months looking. We now regularly cruise the Solent and spend our holidays in the Channel Islands and France. Long term goal is to retire and cruise as far south as Morrocco and as far north as Iceland.
