Experienced Pac Cup crew looking to get back to what I love, warm water and surfing waves to Kaneohe.

About me: 42 years old. Married 11 years with a beautiful 8 year old daughter. Tech industry job near Sacramento. Currently own and race a Melges 15 at Folsom Lake and an Islander Bahama 30 out of RYC.
I've seen what it takes to get a boat from the boat yard to Hawaii and everything in between. Let's team up and sail fast in 2022.
