- My sailing adventures started back in the 80's departing from SF Bay, went out the Golden Gate and turned left traveling down the Pacific coast, Pacific side of Baja and then into the Sea of Cortez. Spent a few years cruising in Mexico and then proceeded down through Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Enjoyed the time there before going to Panama and, though my original destination had been the South Pacific, could not resist going through the canal and into the San Blas Islands. I passed through Panama the week following the US invasion, very interesting times as I ended up being the only civilian boat at the Lake Gatun yacht club and partying with the US Navy when the admiral of the Atlantic Fleet walked down the dock to say hello and issue a invitation to the BBQ.
Sailing in the San Blas Islands was idyllic.While there I installed solar energy for a medical clinic in Carti Sugtupo (gratis). I also spent time in Honduras (Roatan) scuba diving and where I built a home in the 90's. Fast forward to the present time and my current location of the USVI's for the last 5 years or so. If there is a plan, it is to bounce around the Carribean visiting the islands and maybe make way down to San Blas again, possibly back through the canal and renew my intent of journeying to the South Pacific. I have no set schedule or specific destination at this time but am open to ideas. I like to scuba and free dive, swim, fish and explore, play and listen to some music now and then along with making some friends along the way.
