Bio

I have grown up sailing all of my life, on boats with my parents before I could walk. Most of my sailing resume includes cruising throughout New England and the Caribbean. I am now the proud owner of a 36ft Catalina that I purchased two years ago. My wife is also a lifelong cruiser, we are now introducing our two boys ages 2.5 and 5 to sailing as well. I do not have any offshore experience but am looking to gain this knowledge. We hope to eventually take our children out of school and do a circumnavigation or a tour of the Pacific in the coming years. My own boat is not currently fit for offshore passage.

I am 40 years old, extremely physically fit, Ironman Triathelete, and experienced surfer. I work well under pressure and thrive in adverse conditions. I have no illusions that offshore racing is easy and crossing the Stream can be very challenging. I have a great sense of humor but also know when it is time to shut up and listen. The only way to truly learn offshore sailing skills is to sail offshore. Finally I own my own restaurant and catering company and love to cook. If selected we would likely be the best fed crew in the race!
