After sailing tens of thousands of nautical miles aboard Imani, I came back to the U.S. determined to share my love for sailing with others. I secured a 50-ton Coast Guard license for sailboats in 2010 and have thereafter worked with couples, individuals, and families as they become more and more comfortable running and sailing their own boats. I love to share many of the tips I have gained sailing with my own family as we circumnavigated the world.


I move sailboats safely, efficiently, and prudently from: crossing San Francisco Bay to traversing from Chesapeake Bay to the San Francisco Bay via the Panama Canal; or bringing a sailboat back from Aitutaki, Cook Islands, to Honolulu, Hawaii.

No delivery is too long or too short.


I am pleased to be the Captain of a clean, well-maintained Catalina 36, Seahorse, berthed in San Francisco that is available to book for charter. I can accommodate up to six passengers to sail San Francisco Bay for three- or four-hour excursions. For more information and booking, visit

Looking forward to seeing you on the water!
