  • Description


    I own a 52ft sailboat located in Honolulu that I am in the process of refitting for offshore sailing.
    I plan on sailing to the mainland USA if you are interested in an offshore voyage.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I've been sailing all my life and have over fifty thousand blue-water miles under my keel (and as many coastal) and enjoy sharing my knowledge and teaching people how to sail.
    I am happy to pass on my years of sailing experience to others.
    My hobbies include close up / slight of hand magic, photography, drones (both air quadcopters and undersea drones).
    If you are a calm person with a positive attitude that has a curiosity for the natural world and enjoys experiencing (and respecting) other cultures this might be for you.
    I really want to learn Spanish so if you speak the language that's a plus.
    There is much to explore in Hawaii as it is a year-round paradise for hiking and water sports.
