Looking to sail out of Middle Island or Kellet.  Extensive experience cruising in the San Francisco area (still own a Hunter 35.5 in San Francisco with some partners), and has experience sailing in Hong Kong in the Typhoon series.  Loves to get out cruising or racing on weekends, if anyone is looking for an experienced hand, and would also be happy to get in with a regular crew to do some blue water racing.  50 years old, fit and easygoing, and love a good day of sailing!
