- Despite coming from a non-boating family, I caught the sailing bug early and purchased my first 'boat' - a Styrofoam Sea Snark, at age 12 with money from paper routes, cutting lawns, etc. Since then, in addition to bareboating and crewing for others on offshore passages, I have continuously owned a boat including a 14 foot Blue Jay (at age 16), a 17'3" Siren with cuddy, a Continental 25 fiberglass Folkboat, an Alberg 30, a Bayfield 32, a Cartwright 36 Pilothouse Cutter and my current boat, a Solaris Sunstream 40 catamaran.
Retired as of July 15, 2015, we have sold off our house in Canada and will be sailing south starting in late September, cruising the Bahamas and Caribbean during the winter of 2015/16 and thereafter....who knows?
We also own a beautiful beach front property on Isla Margarita, but our plans to build a small 'boutique' resort there are on indefinite hold until the political and economic situation stabilizes.
