I am a Deputy Sheriff by profession but aspire to sail full time when I retire in the not too distant future. I have been passionately sailing on the San Francisco Bay for over 15 years, but very much want to take the next step. I have acquired numerous ASA certificates through my sailing club, Modern Sailing, (ASA 101, 103, 104, 118 and by the end of 2021 I will have completed 105 and 106). I am very easy going, participate well as a team member and follow direction exceptionally well. I consider myself a young and very energetic 50 year old, but possess maturity, responsibility and focus that often comes with age. I am very interested in participating in this storied yacht race and would welcome a chance to provide more information about myself.
