I learnt to sail when I was in middle-school or so in a summer sailing program at community boating. I mostly sailed on 15 ft cape cod mercurys, and also sailed on small keel boats (probably the rhodes 19).

I raced on a tartan 10 called the barking spider for about two years in san francisco with a guy named mike kearny.

Around august 2004 my first boat, a Santana 22. I sailed that in the San Francisco Bay for about one year, and then sold it after buying Thistledown, an Aries 32. I am currently attempting a circumnavigation of the world in Thistledown.
