is there to say? We both love to sail, love
boats, love boat people, and love dogs. We
both, more or less, have a lifetime of sailing,
including dinghies, sunfish, a couple of small

four Newport-Bermuda races, Nova

got married in 1997 in Newport, dockside, with our
(then) two boats tied alongside. Every year
since we took at least six weeks to cruise up the
coast of Maine and into Canada with on our little Esmeralde, the Able Whistler 32 we traded in to
build the Sabre 386 in 2005. On the new boat
we have continued the tradition of Maine cruises,
and added the Newport Bermuda Race in 2006 and 2008,
in the double-handed class. We're on track to sail
the race in 2010 also, double-handed.
our new Sabre, also named ESMERALDE, we expect to extend our range, and hopefully (business
permitting) spend some time in warmer waters during
the winter months.
you on the water!
