I have been sailing on the Chesapeake Bay since 1983. In 1985 my wife Deb and I purchased a Hunter 31, which was followed later by a Hunter 34. In 2000 we bought “Reality”, a Passport 40 sloop which we dock in the Middle River, just north of Baltimore. A life long resident of Maryland, I served as a volunteer fireman and paramedic for more than 30 years. Prior to becoming a full-time captain and instructor I owned and operated an auto repair shop in Harford County, Maryland.
I hold a USCG 50 Gross Tons Masters license and I am certified as an American Sailing Association Instructor through ASA Level 104, Basic Bareboat Cruising. I obtained my U S Power Squadron Senior Navigator designation in 1995, and since then I have taught their Seamanship, Sail, and Engine Maintenance courses for the Sue Island, MD, Power Squadron. I have been an active member of the Baltimore Yacht Club since 1986.
