Hello from the OC
Greetings from the OC.
New member with a new to us Tartan 3800; formerly owned a CAT 38 for thirteen years; before that a Morgan 27 for ten years.
Been racing off and on since 1972, my boats, and many others. Done Transpacs, Ensenadas, races around the offshore islands in SoCal, etc.
Started in sailing in 1957 with trips to Catalina Island on family friend's boat. Sailed from Cabo to Socal in 1964 (saw the last of the real Cabo; saw one boat the entire trip, times have changed); BB chartered in the Caribbean and Mexico.
Looking to use our Tartan for Channel Islands cruising (then maybe south in a few years); want to get disabled veterans involved in sailing using my boat.
Hobbies also include surfing and skiing; married; Army veteran; teach coastal navigation for the USCGAUX for almost 20 years.
