Here I am at the wheel. I've now sailed for more than twenty years. I was hooked after taking a cruising course at the Annapolis Sailing School. Over the years I've owned a number of old boats. My first was an Ensenada 20, moved up to a Hunter 25, then a Ranger 30, and now a Westerly Berwick. Each held its own adventure and served as proof positive that the water rat in Wind in the Willows was correct. "There's nothing quite like messing around in boats!"

And here's Nancy at our home port in Huron, Ohio and on a sail!

Here's the newest addition to the crew. _It's Flash, the official ship's cat!
