I learned sailing while at university. After moving to Saratoga Springs, NY, my family and I became members of the Saratoga Lake Sailing Club. As an active member, I started programs for the membership to teach Boater Safety, Safe Powerboat Handling, and Boat Rescues. I am also involved in running sailboat races, coaching sailing and sailboat racing.
