Sailors sailing sailboats, racing sailboats and cruising sailboats, sailing adventures, and summaries of sailing events are the core of my writing. Sailing is how I relate to life. Virtually all the stories, articles, poetry, humor, and pleasures contained in this site, are about sailing, from a variety of perspectives. Sailing is winning.

I have been sailing all my life, one way or another. It wasn’t until 1985 that I figured out that a boat, wind and water made it a lot more enjoyable. I have owned numerous boats since then. I am always in pursuit of higher performance or more intense competition. I have sailed prams, kayaks, canoes, catamarans, trimarans, racers and cruisers. The lessons I have learned are numerous and applicable on a broad scale. Writing about them is enjoyable and fulfilling. It often allows me to review lessons that I have learned before, and prepare for those lessons that I have still to learn. Several pages of this collection are available on this site. I have been certified by the American Sailing Association, US Sailing, and the US Coast Guard, as a sailing instructor, powerboat instructor, and Captain.
