Beginnings: Sean Mulligan
Sean Mulligan grew up in the once sail-friendly town of Lake Havasu City. Over the years, the exhilarating windsurfing, fast cats, and weekly beer-can races of his youth were scuttled in favor of more power, more noise, and less clothes. Sean, a firefighter, and his wife, Jo, a school principal, found themselves without sailing companions. They began nautically networking, and on the web they discovered the Southern California West Wight Potter Association. Joining a fun group of owners of pocket cruisers, they took their first cruise aboard their refurbished Montgomery 23, Dauntless, to Anacapa Island, one of California's Channel Islands.
