About Me:

Hello,
I started racing Windmills in Tidewater Virginia in the mid '70s.
Rented a Laser on and off and grew a fondness for the design of the Taser - husband and wife team sailing - but never made it happen. When we did get into sailing again it was with the Catalina 16.5 then up to the Capri 22, now back to the Force5 that has always had my attn.  I loved the chime of the Windmill, and planing... you just got to do it!
My wildest day sailing was the day after Hurricane Earl on Rehoboth Bay. The 16.5 was a lot to handle but we had her flying in 20+ wind gusts. Nearly capsized to windward when all three of us (reaching) were caught hiking out while a gust dropped right off. My only first place was in high winds, my second also.  I hope to get out there and race with you all and get my blood pumping once again. Until then -
Then has come and is still here. Have very much enjoyed racing with you all - great physical and mental sport! Now to get better finishes....
