My personal comment and commitment to you

At age 10, upon seeing a sailing boat for the very first time, something flipped in my brain and I instantaneously fell in love with sailing. That thing in my brain never turned off. My immense love of sailing has just grown stronger over the past 45 years since then. By age 16, after many hours of self studying (including celestial navigation), many exams and tens of thousands of miles sailing, I earned an international commercial yacht captains license (100 ton). Since then I have also earned a USCG Master License with its Sailing Endorsement. Currently I work as a charter and delivery Captain mostly on medium to large size sailing vessels, and my crew (wife) and I are available to deliver boats from anywhere to anywhere around the world. Just let us know of your needs, and it will be our pleasure to serve you. Thank you!
