Update February 2007
I'm heading back to Mexico for another sailing season. Initial plans are to cruise from February to May or June.
Update October 2005
It has been an interesting year. I have traveled quite a bit - a trip to St. Kitts., Antigua, Trinidad, New York City, Beirut Lebanon, Karachi Pakistan, several trips to Mexico to check on Renaissance, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Miami.
What did I learn on my voyage?
I've lived in many places: Seattle, Washington D.C., Little Rock Arkansas, Sydney Australia, London England, Frankfurt Germany, Warsaw Poland, - and have enjoyed traveling to many other places: Hong Kong, Mexico, France, Czech Republic, Hawaii, British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Egypt, Bermuda - and of course, all over the U.S.
I'm the skipper of S/V Renaissance, a 1971 32 ft. Islander yacht, sloop rigged, manufactured by Wayfarer Yacht corporation in Costa Mesa, California.
I'm a certified open water diver - and have completed the American Sailing Association #101 (Basic Keel Boat), and #103 (Coastal Cruising) certifications.
I have also completed the Coast Guard Auxiliary Basic and Advanced Coastal Navigation classes.
My professional career is in the world of Information Technology - with a long history of international experience.
I enjoy playing the guitar - and can pass muster as a reasonable cook when need be.
January-May 2004: Cruising Pacific Coast of Mexico and Sea of Cortez
Spent a season sailing from L.A. to Mexico...cruised the Pacific Baja coastline to Cabo San Lucas - then up into the Sea of Cortez...with a long rest in La Paz. Explored Isla Spiritos Santos. Sailed across the Sea to Mazatlan and ended the season at Marina Mazatlan.
