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 '78, 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 like Catalina 32, 36, Downeast 38, and Peterson 44, and sailed the islands with high school scouts. 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 Anacapa, 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 spent every holiday and many weekends racing and sailing to some of the remote anchorages that we love. Sixteen years ago we retired early and started full time cruising.

    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 Gib and as far north as Norway.

    Bio: Yanked from a happy life of sailing by a job on the top of a mountain, and dissatisfied by the seaworthiness of retirement boats I could afford, I made the worst and most painful decision of my life by building my own.
