MY RECREATION
Sailing has been part of my life from youth, beginning in New Zealand, then South Africa. Over the past seven years I have tried to cruise at least once a year, usually with my family. In 1993 I did the Royal Yachting Association's Yachtmaster Offshore navigation course and the Offshore Skipper practical course. In addition to cruising, I helped deliver Sailor Bandido, first a Mirage 338, then a Quest 33 that is raced on Lake Michigan and I crew in the distance races.
FORTY TWO
In May 2000 the search was finally over, and I became the owner of Forty Two, a Newport 41 yacht. For details, click here.
THE FLAGS
The flags in the background are of the places that I have sailed in. Some are national flags, others are regional or states flags. The Animation Factory was my source for these.
LOG BOOK
The table below is an extract from my log book of the major trips I have done since 1993. In July 2004 we left on an extended liveaboard cruise. Detailed logs are here.
