"I started sailing with Hoofers in 1985. In 1986 I started working at the repair shop and the next year I became an sailing instructor. Windsurfing is my favorite, but while I wait for some good wind, I love sailing all kinds of boats. In 2000 I took a two year sabbatical from Hoofers and sailed around the world in a 37 foot catamaran. See http://www.ladybugadventures.com for details. I also enjoy building wooden boats and I am now working on boat number 9. My next dream is to do an epic sailing trip like these guys"
