About Me

About Me...

My Cousin Tom took me sailing off the Conn. Coastline on an O'Day 17' Daysailor in the early 70's and I've been sailing every chance I get ever since.

Since this introduction, I've Chartered and/or Raced sailboats on The Gulf, Atlantic, Pacific Coasts and a number of times in The Carribbean Seas. Every vacation includes searching for an opportunity to sail before returning home...

Having been a Charter Member of the Clinton Lake Sailing Association
(CLSA ) and serving in many offices over the years -- there's been an ample opportunity to contribute to the CLSA Goal of promoting sailing at Clinton Lake.

Offices held include:

Harbormaster (CLSA Pavilion Constructed 1984-1986),
(Youth Sailing Days and Weds.evening FREE Group Sailing Instruction,
CLSA Rental Fleet-- FREE to CLSA Certified Members -- )
Commodore (New Committe Boat Outboard and CLSA Boathouse,
Rear Commodore (2008),
and Membership Chairman
(2005 - present, CLSA Spring Sailboat Show/Open House, Laser/Sunfish Challenge ).
