I started sailing because traveling by boat seemed like an interesting way to see the world. Learning to sail seemed like a logical first step, but then I got hooked on sailing for its own sake. It’s a wonderful mix of science, craft, and consciousness that connects us with nature—and ourselves.

Since getting my feet wet in a sailboat that first time at Cal Sailing Club, I’ve sailed across the Pacific and up and down the Baja Peninsula, but you can usually find me sailing in or around San Francisco Bay.
