This will be my 51st year of sailing, having started as a camper on Cape Cod sailing Turnabout prams and Mercury sloops. I have owned eight sailboats, ranging from a Mini-fish to a 31-footer, and currently sail a Pacific Seacraft Dana out of Ossining.
I've done deliveries on a J-42, crewed on the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and taught sailing and seamanship on the 42-foot gaff tops'l sloop Sojourner Truth for 13 years. I spout Hudson River geography, history, lore and legend at the drop of a hat. This will be my fourth season teaching Basic Sailing for Great Hudson.
