Ive been sailing for close to 4 years now. I was first introduced to sailing by the father of someone I was dating and I took to it instantly. I am also on my 4th vessel.

My first was a 70's era 27 foot Catalina, great little boat but I eventually gave her up due to finances. My next vessel was an early era venture (60's era Macgregor for those that dont know) I put her on hard at my parents property and eventually scrapped her to finish up a newer I want to say late 80's or early 90's Macgregor. I finished that one up an learned that she wasn't going to fulfill my needs so she was eventually sold to a nice gentleman in Vegas and is now known as the pain Angel I believe. Shes also won some regattas there.

I then purchased my current baby a 1968 Columbia 28. One of the inboard model that has had the keel glassed in professionally. Ive been enjoying her and now on my second season with her.

Im a youngster far as skippers go 29 and working on keeping myself in a state of constant learning. Ive logged my share of miles for my short time as a sailor and looking forward to many more.
