About Captain Mike

Mike has been sailing all his 61 years of life.  The son of an accomplished ocean racer, his first solo sail at the age of 8 years or so was on the 9ft sailing dinghy that served as tender to the family's yacht while moored at Catalina Island.  There has always been a sailboat in his life since then, from 15 foot sailing dinghies to a 50'catamaran holding 49 passengers.  A few years ago he sold his 40' cruising boat in Australia after spending several years cruising the coast of Mexico and across the Pacific with his wife Barbara.
