New to sailing less than 3 years with my SO Cathy Pratt. We have a beach cat and a Ranger 33 on the windward side. Currently Rear Commodore of Sail for Makani Kai Yacht Club, I like competing in races as well as cruising. This is my first trans pacific crossing and also the longest I've been on a boat. Sine I have become a boat owner I've learned more about boat repair than sailing but still have a lot to learn.
