Sailing & Maritime History

I learned to sail in Santa Barbara, California and have cruised throughout the Salish Sea, San Francisco Bay, Mexico, Croatia, French Polynesia, and the Caribbean, often conducting research at the same time. Currently I write a column called "A Northwest Sailor Navigates the Past" for 48° North Magazine.  Click the button below for a selected list of publications.
