I first stood on a dock, a newbie to sailing, anxious to ask and to fearful of regrets if I didn't.... "do you need some crew?" was the first words in that summer of 05' @ Deer Harbor marina on Orcas island... (a seed had been planted some 15 years earlier as i watched the Redhawk, a Hans Christian 43' sail into Rosario bay with Dix Sutton and fellow sailors aboard....) the opportunity now before me to crew, on a sail boat, even for a summer season of Wednesdays was before me... little did I know I'd never be the same.

A nomadic soul if ever there was one....
