Sailing since age 11 when my father joined the Canadian Forces Sailing Association in Halifax. Since then did a small amount of delivery work on the eastern seaboard to pay for university. Now I sail only for the fun of it. Built my first boat, a 40' Tancook Island Schooner at 25 with a dream of sailing off to the far horizons, but then met the right lady and decided to get married instead. Nelleke (see boat forum) is the fourth boat that we have owned. In succession we have owned: a 36' Northumberland Strait Fishing boat which we used as a dive platform (I am a commercial diver and SCUBA instructor), a 24' Cabin Cruiser named Moon Snail (We were living inland at the time), Nehallenia - an Ontario 28 and now Nelleke - a Moody 42 which we plan to retire to. At present we are located at the Armdale Yacht Club in Halifax Nova Scotia and are engaging in a series of shakedown cruises in Atlantic Canada and New England. We would be happy to help anyone who is interested in cruising to the Maritimes and can be reached at our e-mail.
