Throughout my prior life as an editor at numerous American yachting magazines, I was fortunate adequate to sail thousands of offshore miles on a wide range of boats. My job as yachting scribe has brought me on adventures from the Arctic Circle to the equator, and to almost each tropical location in among. I’ve dodged higher-speed hydrofoils on the brown waters off St. Petersburg, Russia, anchored in impossibly blue water off uninhabited islands in the Seychelles, Scandinavia, the BVI, and the Bahamas, and even flown aboard a Jayhawk helicopter with the US Coast Guard on education missions. These days, when I’m not travelling or writing about the magic that occurs at confluence of superyachts, offshore adventure, luxury travel, and technologies, I sail my ultra-very simple, ultra-quick dinghy, ride my beautiful and gloriously-high priced carbon fiber bike, and push our tiny one particular in a child stroller all more than New England.
