Get a taste for what an awesome experience living, working and voyaging on a classic sailboat can be, while viewing fantastic landmarks from the uncrowded deck of my sailboat " Alsager ", using sustainable and eco friendly wind power. Perhaps choose an evening sail, and enjoy a wonderful sunset! Get a little salty while we sail and chat about what it's like going far from land and crossing oceans, from endless waves and wind, to calm nights under starry skies. Get a feel for what it's like to live and thrive in a constantly moving small space, in a beautiful but unforgiving environment. Hear what it's like to battle land Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Sailfish while under a full spread of sail and have the freshest sushi minutes later, to anchor in tropical anchorages, bathe in the sea, and surf endless, uncrowded waves right from the boat. Ask as little or as much as you like about surviving storms, living in foreign countries, meeting great cruising friends, and unplugging from normal living to find another path. And perhaps, ask how you can get started yourself. Spend time aboard a unique, rugged, beautiful boat with numerous Atlantic Ocean crossings and a Panama Canal transit under her belt, that has provided a safe and peaceful haven for her crew over the span of five decades in a green, earth friendly fashion. Bring easy snacks and drinks along if you'd like to.
I'm passionate about voyaging and the sailing lifestyle, and living and working on boats around the world. I grew up in Canada sailing and racing small boats, and I have just returned from a year long cruise in Alsager to Mexico's Gold Coast and the Sea of Cortez with my wife, young son, and dog Noah on board. Recently, I have sailed over 10,000 miles, including a passage from Hawaii to Seattle. Prior to departing, I spent many years working around the world for America's Cup Race Management, setting courses for race yachts, and now do the same for SailGP.

Life jackets. All required safety gear, and I am a Coast Guard Licensed Captain with First Aid training.
Aboard " Alsager ", where you will experience what it means to travel and live aboard a traditionally built ocean going yacht, along with whales, porpoises and seals! See San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from where they are viewed best - a unique sailboat with a low carbon footprint. Avoid the crowds on land, and see these fantastic landmarks while enjoying a fun sailing experience!
