Ocean and Mediterranean competing in world class ocean and maxi racing circuits with wins in
notable races such as The Heineken Regatta, Marblehead to Halifax, Newport to Bermuda Race as
well as both the 12 meter North American & World championships. It was during this time that he
began his second career at sea with formal training and climbed the ranks to Master and Unlimited
