Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.
Checking in from Long Beach, CA; here for the last 30 or so years. During that time owned an Ericson 27, a Islander 36, a C&C Landfall 38 (partnership), and a Catalina 30 (partnership) in that order. Did the Ensenada race around 3 times in the early 2000s (the C&C) and did middling well considering the dumb stuff we did.
Before that bare-boated in BVIs, (Irwin 37), in Grenadines (big honking Moorings 52 luxury hotel with a mast) and finally in Greek Isles wisely using services of a hired local skipper.
Lived a few years in Hayward CA, sailing Rhodes 19 c/b, then moved up a little with an Albin Vega 27.
That's the sailing history to date. I am currently on the hard, but looking for a 33-34 sloop rigged 1985 or newer cruising boat. Sometime this summer (2014) I hope. No racing planned, just an old guy who loves the water that holds her up, and the wind that makes her go.
I would be glad to share my take on any of the above ex sweethearts.
