Previous boats include a Catalina 27 that I sailed out of Beverly, MA.; a 1997 Island Packet 40 sailed out of Bayfield, WI.; and Hallberg Rassy 53 out of Marion, MA. Descended from a long line of European sea captains and sailors. Have my USCG 50 ton Inland and Great Lakes ticket and my near coastal OUPV. Want to sail all over the world, especially Northern Europe.
