On Ocean and Sailing Passion...

I grew up spending all of my time on the water in a community where the health of the environment and specifically the water is very important.  This has shaped the way I see the ocean and the impact we have on it.  I’ve always been very passionate about sailing and the “playing field” where we compete!
