My husband, Chuck and I live in Everett, Washington, on our Catalina 42, 'Wind Watcher' which we purchased in May 2004. I lived with him on his 35 wooden sloop 'Entropy' for about 4 years. We had our honeymoon on a 3 masted sailing ship crusing the South Indies. We love to cruise the Puget Sound & San Juan Islands. We usually anchor out for New Year's Eve, and 2 years in a row came home thru a gale! I enjoy fishing, and crabbing. Chuck and I are certified SCUBA divers, have our ham licenses, have first aid cards, and have taken the 'primo' sail repair class from Carol Hasse in Port Townsend. In 2 to 3 years, we plan to retire, cut the dock lines and head south, see where the wind blows us. I am looking forward to crewing on the 'Cirrus'. It will be my first ocean crossing and I plan to be a sponge to soak up every bit of education and experience that I can.
