Only a Million Miles to Go!!

Real sailing experience: I've cooked a 5 star swordfish meal in a serious bashy-bashy close-haul without any mishap for 4 people on. A 39-foot Bavaria; I've skippered a 52-footer with inexperienced passengers in a thunderstorm in the reefiest part of the Grenadines with no instruments because they mysteriously and not-so-conveniently went out, and anchored like a boss in a prime spot in front of the bar at Petit St. Vincent, all the while keeping a straight face until I went into my cabin and screamed into my pillow; I can almost call myself an expert at undoing foresail "bow ties"; I can say for a fact that bowline knots can indeed undo themselves; jellyfish have a curious way of keeping you sane as you sit in a heave-to in 15 meter seas for half a day on a 36 foot sailboat waiting for a storm to pass in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean; I've frozen my ass off sailing around Denmark and Sweden; I've been stalked by giant manta rays in the Sea of Cortez; I've sailed all the way around Corsica; and in Croatia, I moored a 40 foot boat with 25 knots at my beam into the last slip available, single-handedly-- literally as I had just broken my arm just prior at the fuel dock, you can ask me about it over a beer-- and without thrusters or miraculously not bashing into anyone; and if you must pass gas while on watch in a storm and you're in wet weather gear, make sure no one else is around because the smell will linger for an uncomfortably long time, even in force 7 winds. Truth. I've seen and experienced a lot while sailing, but the best part of all of it is enjoying a sundowner with absolute strangers and sharing these experiences. I've played the part of skipper, first mate, crew, and galley slave throughout my journeys across the seas. Outside of this, I enjoy many sports like swimming, biking, and hiking. I was a pro-sport skydiver for several years and have done a few scuba dives. I got my B.S. in mechanical engineering and M.S. in aerospace engineering; and being in love with aero-hydrodynamics, it only seems fitting that I love sailing and am a bit of a nerd about it. Hit me up if you'd like to know more about me or you feel like I'd be a good fit for your adventure. I take my position seriously, but I'm good for a lot of laughs =) I look forward to sharing a mile or two or even a few thousand over the waters with you!
