In this ongoing series, we will be profiling new crew members at the National Yacht Club. If you see them around the club, welcome them, and maybe take them out on your next cruise or race. If you would like to be featured, please write to email@example.com -Ed.
Thank you very much for the welcome. I am looking forward to meeting other club members, becoming involved in club activities and (hopefully) having the opportunity to do a little sailing.
I first learned to sail in 1979 at age 11 at the RKYC is Saint John NB and, with the exception of a few landlocked years, have been on the water ever since. Since 1992 I have been sailing Georgian Bay with friends on their Alberg 30 which is kept in Penetang. As the boys have all since gotten married and are raising families they have little time to spare sailing with me. I still manage to get out on the Bay a few times in the summer and have done some bareboating in the BVIs and in the Grenadines.
As far as experience goes I have been sailing for over 30 years. As a teenager I raced Lasers and Laser IIs and did some keel boat racing. Most recently I got my Intermediate Cruising Standard from the Humber College Sailing Centre. My primary interest is cruising but I would certainly be interested in getting back into racing if anyone is looking to start a beginner crew. I live near the club and I am available on short notice to crew.
Thank you again for the warm welcome.
