I was born in Canada, and I lived for several years in Alberta where I worked, married, and raised 2 sons.
I was transferred to Vancouver in the early 80's, bought a 27ft yacht, and learned to sail. In 1986, we sold that boat and bought IsaLei-Rua, a 37ft yacht specifically designed and built for offshore sailing. In June 1990, after working for the same company for 30 years, a long anticipated retirement came and we went offshore sailing. We spent the next 6 years exploring the Pacific from Mexico to Australia. Eventually, we settled in northern New Zealand and parted ways in 1997. IsaLei-Rua was sold at Easter 2000 and I moved to Australia where the weather was kinder.
I now live with my wonderful partner Janet in beautiful, warm Australia and have become an Australian citizen.
