About Me

****"Currently studying Spanish in Buenos Aires


Sail around the world......again!
Aprender Espanol
Be worthy of my shortboard


Full time live aboard sailor who has been fortunate enough to have spent a lot of time at sea.

I embrace a minimalist approach to sailing and believe in a "how much one can do with how little" philosophy (not just with sailing). Little engine use, anchoring out and living at the local standard of living as opposed to status conscious yacht clubs and an elitist rally mentality.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had written the blurb below in 2010 when Couchsurfing was still a non profit organization. My opinion may be slowly changing.

Couchsurfing represents one of the best aspects of the internet. Time spent infront of a computer screen actually translates into enriching time spent away from it. It is a shortcut in finding a way to meet those travelers and locals that you actually wanted to meet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ask me in person.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach sailing. I have an eight foot pram that has a sailing rig. It is like a little row boat that sails quite well. An excellent platform to learn on unlike the big boat.
