I have been captain of my own recreational sailing boats all my life. My sailing experiences include passages on the Atlantic ocean, Pacific Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and US Great Lakes. My ocean sailing passages over the recent two years total to over 12,000 nautical miles:
- French Polynesia (Tahiti and Tuamotu Islands) to Oahu Hawaii to Marina Del Rey California. This was a close hauled upwind delivery of over 5k nm.
- Multiple north and south direction trips on USA West Coast ranging from Canada to San Diego. Much fun cruising in San Juan Islands and the various ports of call along usa west coast.
- Sailed Plan Sea from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas. 775nm in 121 hours nonstop.
- Presently in La Paz, BCS Mexico looking to get out of here asap pronto!
I am retired from a 33 year career in Aerospace Engineering.
When not sailing or working on Plan Sea, I spend my time back-country skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking, and hiking.
My home base is in the Wasatch mountains of Utah.

Don’t pass up an opportunity to get aboard Plan Sea

5

I met Kevin on crewbay when he was looking for someone to crew aboard Plan Sea from Oregon up to Washington a few years ago. Since then I have joined him for 2 additional offshore passages, one of which we did double-handed. He is a competent and experienced sailor, and all around great guy to hang out with. His vessel is well kept and extremely seaworthy, you’d be hard pressed to sail aboard a better cruising boat in this size range. He has many interests and life experiences outside of sailing that make for great conversations, and really makes an effort to get to know you. The best part of it all: his quesadillas

Positive knowledge captain

5

Captain Kevin is very patient, kind, optimistic, open, and extremely willing to teach. He has a well maintained yatch that he knows well and takes every safety precaution. He has a love of the outdoors and adventure. He takes ultimate responsibility and is very easy to get along with and has a great attitude. If you get a chance to sail with Kevin you will not be disappointed.

Sailing on Plan Sea

5

I’ve been friends with Kevin for many years, working together in our engineering careers as well as mountain biking and back country skiing adventures. His disciplined, engineering approach to planning and problem solving makes for a positive safety net on all our outdoor adventures. I sailed with Kevin on Plan Sea in Washington’s Puget Sound and San Juan Islands during the summer of 2020, and on a passage from Portland Oregon to San Francisco in 2021. Sailing at that level was completely new to me prior to joining his crew. As captain of Plan Sea, Kevin knows how to bring novice and experienced sailors together to form a cohesive crew. He also provided sailing mentorship as needed for fun and safe sailing adventures. Plan Sea is a fun and seaworthy boat and Kevin is a very competent sailing captain who keeps Plan Sea in perfect condition. The passage from Portland to San Francisco was fast and a bit rough running along at 40 to 60 miles offshore. Nevertheless, we always felt safe, lived comfortably, and ate well. With Kevin’s strong engineering background, he understands Plan Sea’s design in every detail and is meticulous about boat maintenance. He was also a patient and thorough instructor. My adventures on Plan Sea involved the thrill of a fast-moving ocean boat with plenty of great fun and conversation. I look forward to future opportunities to sail along with Kevin and his crew.
