I am a fun, vibrant licensed captain (100ton US Coast Guard License) who always places safety first. Born in the Bay Area, I began sailing on Lake Merrit and quickly progressed to racing on my neighbor's boat in the San Francisco Bay. My passion for sailing and adventure has taken me all over the world. For 19 years I owned and chartered a 62' sloop in Greece and Turkey and in the winters was often sailing in the Caribbean. I have sailed everything from 12' Lasers to 110' schooners. When I returned and settled in the San Francisco area I had a motor tour boat built but missed the fun and thrill of sailing, so I sold the business and went looking for my dream boat. I found Evening Star and am so happy to share it with you.
