I built my first sailboat at the age of 12. It was built from scrap plywood and lumber from a church that was being built next door in Tampa, Florida. It was a crude flat bottom boat with leeboards. The sail was a lateen rig that was made from saplings and old bed sheets. It sailed like a tub, but it gave me hours of enjoyment cruising in a small pond located at the back of our house. After years of renting or sailing on friends boats I bought my first Hobie Cat in 1981. Like many others I wanted a sailboat that could go fast. A Hobie Cat fit the need. Soon I was competing in regattas on Hobie Cats and J-24s, which lead to acting as a race officer and organizing regattas. In 2010 I decided to settle down and I bought the Alana McCree in Tortola and brought her to Delaware. I originally kept the Alana McCree in Cape May, New Jersey.  Then we moved her to Summit North (9 miles from my house) which seems to be a perfect spot, as I could choose to sail the Chesapeake or head down and out Delaware Bay and do a little ocean sailing. In 2014 we decided to enter the cruising business in the Annapolis area.
