I talked for years about retiring from my high tech career, buying a yacht and inviting friends for Adventure Cruising. Over six years ago I took action, and am now living my dream.I learned to sail at age six, and now have now spent ten total years full-time cruising. I have a talent for creating successful cruising experiences, and want to share this with an extended community of friends. My additional goal is to offset ongoing cruising expenses by inviting friends to join me, sharing costs.
