I grew up sailing on my god parents' boat on the Chesapeake Bay, and continue to be an avid sailor to this day. My first boat was "Sales Up," a classic Rhodes 19 on which I enjoyed many great sails. I now own "Persistence," a classic Sparkman & Stephens designed Tartan 27-2. I spend nearly every day during the spring, summer, and fall on the waters of the Long Island Sound. I enjoy cruising, racing, and of course cocktail hour!
