I am an avid sailor of more than 40 years, who has raced, been certified as a Red Cross Sailing Instructor, worked as an ocean lifeguard, partnered on a Cal 25 sloop for four years, which I bought and skippered for another nine, served as Commodore of the Marina Single Sailing Club, was the webmaster of Single Mariners of Marina del Rey and am now a skipper with Fairwind Yacht Club. I've collected a few of my sailing articles here as the current On the Water Columnist for the Argonaut and the local reporter for Marina del Rey Patch. I hope you find them to be fun and useful.
