Mission Statement

I'm 42 years old, married, and I have a three year-old daughter. I'm a college grad, I worked within my field (political science) for four years before I figured out I hated it, and I now have a career that I never wanted or planned for but I've been doing it for over fifteen years.

I have a nice house, two nice cars, and a lot of equity in the house that I can't liquidate right now because of the market. That will change.

I sailed in college, crewed quite a few races, owned a small (23') boat for two years before I got married; I sold the boat soon after.

My goal in life is this: on my 58th birthday, not quite a year after I will have dropped my daughter off at college, I want to be sitting at anchor in the North Minerva Reef, on my own boat. I plan to be eating a birthday meal of fresh-caught lobster and a bottle of wine that I picked up along the way. For the record, that date will be July 3rd, 2023.

You're all invited.

Life is too short to sail ugly boats.

Commodore, OPBYC
